Hybrid Workshop

Over the past decade, the technology landscape in the financial sector has evolved quickly. Growing consumer expectations, a pandemic-driven boom in digital adoption, the emergence of digital-native challengers, and the possibilities opened up by new collaborative business models have led this shift. The bankers of today need to understand APIs, integration, cloud computing, digital identity, and AI. To succeed, they need to execute well-thought-out strategies around these technologies mapped to their unique business goals and related internally-focused and external-facing digital initiatives.

Progressive incumbent banking and financial institutions are already rethinking their businesses. We see our technology being deployed in companies of all sizes to explore new strategies including deeper collaboration with the financial services ecosystem via more value-focused APIs, providing liveliness in their consumer channels using more real-time rich information flows, and building faster product-building capabilities to offer better consumer experiences ahead of the competition.

In this session, we will explore:

  • How to create a successful integration and API strategy for financial services institutions aligning to both internal and external initiatives.
  • How WSO2 can help enforce your strategy.
  • Aspects of API-led integration through the WSO2 API management platform in the context of building an enterprise ecosystem for financial systems, referring to concepts including:
    • Creating, life-cycle management, versioning, security, and governance of APIs.
    • Real-time integrations and APIs through AsyncAPIs.
    • Managing GraphQL APIs covering security, subscription and governance.
  • How to deploy and manage large-scale distributed systems employing a cloud-native, decentralized, lightweight API gateway designed especially for microservices;
    • Centralized and decentralized deployments of APIs and integrations using Docker and Kubernetes, and API Operator for Kubernetes.
    • DevOps tooling for managing environments, APIs, and pipelines.

Join us for this hands-on workshop and learn how the WSO2 API Manager enables you to design, develop, deploy and manage your APIs.
