APIs: The DNA of Digital Transformation


Seamless integration of people, devices and systems is the fundamental of Digital Transformation that enables a digital experience for external and internal consumers.
APIs make connectivity simple, faster, standardized, and secure. As a result, APIs are everywhere in a successful digital enterprise. During this session, Asanka will take you through an architecture journey, which defines a reference architecture for an API-driven digital enterprise, as well as lessons on building an effective API program for your organization. In addition, Asanka will share some technical and non-technical best practices gathered while implementing similar solutions.
