Design APIs and Platforms for Disobedience

This presentation was given at API Days Global - Paris.

It often happened to me to work with organizations willing to establish an API strategy, as if such thing exists for real. In the luckiest cases this strategy is seen, at least, as part of a wider plan to embrace the opportunities of the networked age, in something that people often call a digital transformation plan.

But what’s an approach to APIs, microservices and service componentization that makes sense in an age of increasing complexity and interconnectedness? In the age of …Platforms?

My point here is that there’s no possibility — for an organization today — to define its role autonomously, but that the objective of a modern organization should be that of continuously discover its role dynamically, by interacting with the entities that populate its ecosystem.
