The API-driven World

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.

Join WSO2 for a full day of vision and use cases, exclusively focused on integrating a world of disaggregated APIs, cloud services, and data. We’ll concentrate on topics like the impact of APIs on digital transformation and adopting integration agile methodologies.

At WSO2 Summit, 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
  • Using open source technology for greater customization and flexibility
  • Real-world customer use cases

You can look forward to interactive discussions with WSO2 senior leadership, customers and practitioners in the USA.

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

Welcome Address: API-Driven World
Paul Fremantle CTO and Co-Founder, WSO2
10:00 - 10:30

Financial institutions and fintech vendors are amongst the larger producers of software and employers of highly talented developers worldwide. Yet while Wall Street has been consistently increasingly consumption open source, this interactive-by-nature ecosystem has been largely missing out on the opportunities of open collaboration, participation and contribution open source projects.

But in the context of a massive generational and technological evolution, with cloud and decentralized technologies taking over the industry, the opportunity for an open fintech is huge for financial institution decision makers, for developers and generally for each one of us, downstream users of the financial services complex.

In this session, Gab, Executive Director of the Fintech Open Source Foundation, will discuss the state of open source in financial services, discussing trends, opportunities, concrete examples of collaboration and extending a call for contribution to the extended OSS community.
