WSO2 API Day - Dallas


Dallas, Texas

Tuesday, June 18 | 9.00 a.m. to 2.00 p.m.
Hilton Dallas Lincoln Centre - 5410 Lyndon B Johnson Fwy, Dallas, TX 75240

APIs are touching every facet of our society and the underlying trends are going to generate nearly 1 billion APIs in the coming years. All digital transformation is now API-driven and integration technologies underpin their evolution. Ultimately, all development projects will become integration projects.

Yet integration projects still follow a tool-based, waterfall approach. We believe that integration needs to follow an agile model to deal with the growing diversity of endpoints, protocols, and data formats. An integration agile approach rapidly adapts to these changes and requirements.

WSO2 API Day will delve into the concept of integration agile, the growth of APIs, and how you can integrate a world of disaggregated APIs, cloud services, and data. You will also learn how you can build an agile enterprise using our cell based reference architecture.

At WSO2 API Day, you’ll learn about

  • Approaches to integrating, securing and managing APIs, events, and streams
  • Transforming integration projects from waterfall to agile
  • Combining enterprise integration, API management, and identity solutions
  • Applying a cell based architecture approach to improve efficiency and speed of development
  • Using open source technology for greater customization and flexibility
  • Real life integration stories

Who should attend?

CTOs, CIOs, CSOs, and CDOs wanting insights into building internal digital platforms other approaches to digital transformation

Enterprise architects and integration architects craving direct insight into using disaggregated services and building microservices architectures
