API Management within a Microservices Architecture


Johannesburg, South Africa

Tuesday, November 20 | 9.30 am to 1.00 pm
Hyatt Regency Johannesburg, 191 Oxford Rd, Rosebank, Johannesburg, 2196, South Africa.

Microservice architecture is often misunderstood and misread. The architecture promotes lightweight edge gateways and proxy processors. This very fact is misunderstood as a replacement for an API Management layer, which focuses a lot more on quality of services such as life-cycle management, fine-grained security, throttling and a developer enablement portal.

During this meetup, we will discuss, the place of API Management in a microservices ecosystem. We will discuss the purpose of edge gateways and proxies and how that complements a well defined API Management layer.
