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, Asanka 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.
Technology has advanced so rapidly in the last ten years that new, unsolved use cases are not really our challenges anymore. We’ve got hyperscale, hyperledgers, microservices, containers, serverless, well supported open source communities and more innovations that you could possibly keep up with. There are easily adoptable solutions that can increase your applications efficiency and performance and your user's productivity by orders of magnitude. Then why is it so hard to gain adoption of what is obviously superior? Or "What I learned migrating from a large, monolithic, legacy service to an API-First cloud-capable application."
APIs are the oil of the digital world. Different forms and types of APIs power the digital mesh to which we’re all connected to. The potential and reach of APIs however are heavily underutilized today in many organizations. The root cause of this seems to be the lack of a “product mindset” on APIs. Organizations that strategically invest in building a product mindset for APIs have been successful in putting themselves significantly ahead of the curve in innovation. In this session, Nuwan will talk about six key points that will be valuable for API product managers and architects to bring in a product mindset to APIs within their organizations. This will help them to build a more streamlined, agile, and repeatable process that converts their APIs into digital products.

As microservices-based applications are inherently distributed, the integration of microservices is becoming one of the hardest things when realizing microservices architecture. Rather than using a conventional centralized ESB for integrating services, microservices are integrated based on the smart-endpoints terminology, where all the smarts live at the endpoints while they are interconnected via a lightweight messaging infrastructure. These smart endpoints are often built as integration microservices on top of cloud-native integration technologies. In this session, Kasun will explore some key integration patterns for building integration microservices.
Rapid advancements in healthcare have led to new opportunities for healthcare IT. As the US healthcare system moves forward, health IT has to keep pace with developments and define an interoperable ecosystem. FHIR® is becoming the standard for healthcare information exchange. Murad will share Prime’s journey on how they have partnered with WSO2 towards this evolution.
Healthcare records are increasingly becoming digitized. As patients move around the healthcare ecosystem, their electronic health records must be available, discoverable, and understandable. Further, to support automated clinical decisions and other machine-based processing, the data must also be structured and standardized. This is becoming a matter of interest for institutes such as government agencies and regional bodies, and we are already seeing rules and regulations come into action.
Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR®) is a next-generation standard framework created by HL7 combining the best features of previous HL7 standards. FHIR® leverages the latest web standards and focuses on ease of implementability. In this session, Nirmal will introduce WSO2 Healthcare Integration Platform and demonstrate how it boosts developer productivity when exposing FHIR® APIs.

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.
In an API-driven world, consumers want to discover APIs while producers seek to list their APIs and API products in a thriving API ecosystem.
The primary goal of an API marketplace is to create a platform that supports this high-intensive interaction seamlessly while also transforming the technical definition of a consumer and a producer into a natural business experience, which happens between a buyer and a seller.
This session will present the capabilities of an API marketplace, how it can be used for all APIs at different levels in an organization, and how it easily falls into place in an Integrated API Supply Chain.
If APIs are the oil of the digital world, CIAM works as the refinery that makes API interactions meaningful. In fact, APIs and integration is one of the key pillars of CIAM. While APIs are being treated as digital products, CIAM solutions are built on using and consuming these APIs, connecting various applications while making the most out of identity data to provide meaningful user experiences. In this talk, Prabath will explain why customer IAM is an integral part of digital transformation, the pillars that make up CIAM, and how it fits in the digital integrated supply chain.

The next generation of banking revolves around consumer experiences, with success hinging on the ability to offer consumers personalised value in their moment of need. Collaborating with a diverse ecosystem of partners is essential for banks to consistently deliver this experience at scale. However, traditional banking, built on complex internalised processes, was not built for this. As a solution, Dassana will introduce “the Banking Experience Canvas”, a technical framework built on unbundled banking services made available via APIs on a service mesh. He will demonstrate how this enables deeper collaboration with agile service providers, further empowering consumers to stitch together highly relevant financial services experiences from the bank and a rich fintech ecosystem.
Cloud-native architectures have evolved over the past decade to meet the demands of adaptive digital platforms. Deployment automation, frequent rollouts, resiliency, and fault tolerance will play a key role in the success of these digital platforms. In this session, Lakmal will discuss the importance of cloud-native architectures and platforms to build effective digital platforms.
