APIs are critical for any modern application, whether it be for mobile apps, B2B integration, digital disruption or agile integration strategies. With this greater focus on APIs comes the increased need for API management. When adopting API management many make the mistake of giving it less significance and setting themselves up for big problems.

In this webinar, WSO2’s guest speaker Randy Heffner, analyst at Forrester Research, will set the record straight by providing a clear definition for API management - and the broader API platform - that enterprises need to create and implement a successful API strategy. Using WSO2 customer user stories, Isabelle Mauny, the vice president of product management at WSO2, will then explain how choosing the proper API management platform can set yourself on the road to success for API-led business transformation.
