Platforms are fast becoming the de-facto business model for large-scale digital innovation. The success of unicorn businesses such as Uber and Airbnb that continue to disrupt traditional established markets is proof that business platforms are here to stay!

Building a sustainable platform goes beyond just technology. Ensuring digital innovation, participation and agility from both internal and external stakeholders of a platform require platform design that takes into account the needs of producers and consumers of services and solves them via a technology platform.

APIs are a key part of this platform-driven digital innovation, enabling organizations to expose internal assets in a controlled manner to various stakeholders whilst enabling the community to build innovative applications consuming these services. API platforms provide the core technology for sharing these APIs.

This webinar will explore

  • The power of the platform business model and case studies around them
  • How API platforms play a role in digital innovation
  • Concepts such as API management, rate limiting, security, monetization, analytics, and social feedback
