WSO2 API Day - Toronto, Canada 2019


Toronto, CN

Tuesday, November 12 | 9.00 am to 2.30 pm
Venue - DoubleTree by Hilton, 108 Chestnut St, Toronto, ON M5G1R3

This WSO2 API Day is hosted by WSO2 together with our Premier Certified Integration Partner, Yenlo.

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, co-presented with Yenlo, 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.

The list of discussion topics include:

  • 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
