APIs are the products of the 21st century. As we build out API systems, we find that we are constantly learning from product journeys. We propose a new kind of supply chain - the Integrated API Supply Chain (IASC) - which is needed by any organization looking to create and monetize API products, either directly or indirectly. In this session, Shankar will outline our vision of the IASC, identify five key patterns for success, and give a blueprint for creating a digital business based on API products.
