  7. 7. @ManfredBo7 What’s the problem ? Everything that matters today has an API. API programs need to cover topics far beyond just technical.

  23. 23. @ManfredBo33 Lessons learned Supporting process around the API Model canvas is required. Tool needs to be improved for self-service. User management and collaboration. Only works in iterations. Questions need to be prioritized.
  24. 24. @ManfredBo34 Wrap-up “Digital” is in the 2nd half of the chessboard. Could be overwhelming. APIs are at the core. The right strategy for the APIs is crucial. Tackling all aspects of a successful API program is complex. The API Model Canvas gives a structure and practical guidance to describe, deliver, and capitalize the value of the API.
