One does not have to spend much time searching to find the terms “API economy”, “API first”, and other similar phrases. In the spirit of those phrases one would think all you need to do is throw those topics into a conversation and you have a golden ticket for success. Unfortunately, we are all aware that the real world doesn’t operate in that binary fashion. In this discussion, Damon will explain how his team focused on three key tenants to build a successful API program at Cerner. There were some obstacles on the journey and some lessons learned will be shared in an effort to prevent others from repeating the same patterns.
