San Jose, California

Integrate 2016 is one of the world's largest technology conferences, expo, and social network that is 100% focused on integrating technologies together. The vision of Integrate is that data, API’s, infrastructure, and IT products will see themselves as components of a single interconnected technology platform. Integrate 2016 is about Open Technology

Speaking at the conference this September is Prabath Siriwardana, the director of security architecture and Asanka Abeysinghe, the vice president of solutions architecture at WSO2.

API adoption has become the 'coolest' way of exposing business functionalities to the outside world. Both public and private APIs need to be secured. With the exponential growth of standards, following best practices in securing APIs will help you wade through the uncertainty and help you realize the internal and external benefits of developing APIs for your services. In this talk, Prabath will guide you through varying options and share industry leading best practices in designing APIs for “rock-solid security”.
Seamless integration of people, devices, and systems is the fundamental of Digital Transformation that enables a digital experience for external and internal consumers. In this session, Asanka will take you through an architecture journey, defining a reference architecture for an API-driven digital enterprise, whilst sharing some technical and non-technical best practices.
