Successful API product thinking and monetization models require the fulfillment of a key characteristic—that the API in question creates value for a particular group of stakeholders. In today’s digital firms, APIs are the encapsulation of intellectual property. In this session, we’ll take a unique look at value chains and how value flows in the API supply chain for products. We’ll introduce the concept of Value Programming Interfaces as APIs that promote value. And we’ll look at the network effect of value, aka platforms, in the form of marketplaces. Welcome to the future of digital business.
