The API-driven World
APIs are touching every facet of our society and the underlying trends that are going to generate nearly 1 billion APIs in the coming years. All digital transformation is now API-driven and integration technologies underpin their evolution.
Join us for a full day of vision and use cases, exclusively focused on integrating a world of disaggregated APIs, cloud services, and data. We’ll concentrate on topics like the impact of APIs on digital transformation, adopting integration agile methodologies, and Open Banking in Australia.
At WSO2 Summit, you'll learn about
- Approaches to integrating, securing and managing APIs, events and streams
- Transforming integration projects from waterfall to agile
- Combining enterprise integration, API management, and identity solutions
- The business benefits of Open Banking in Australia
- How to easily write microservices that integrate with APIs using Ballerina
- Using open source technology for greater customization and flexibility
You can look forward to interactive discussions with WSO2 senior leadership, Australian and New Zealand customers and practitioners.
Who should attend:
CTOs, CIOs, CSOs, and CDOs
wanting insights into building internal digital platforms other approaches to digital transformation
- Enterprise architects and integration architects
craving direct insight into using disaggregated services and building microservices architectures
APIs and integration is suddenly the hottest sector in enterprise software!
Tyler will discuss how APIs are touching every facet of our society and the underlying trends that are going to generate nearly 1 billion APIs in the coming years. All digital transformation is now API-driven and integration technologies underpin their evolution.
As the world becomes digitally-native, how will the role of enterprise architecture shift? How do we leverage cloud native and agility initiatives?
In this session, Tyler will discuss
- The impact APIs are having on digital transformation
- WSO2's roadmap for API-driven initiatives
- A reference architecture for agility
- A new agility methodology for integration
- How microservices will pervade integration products
- Our commitment and role of Ballerina (cloud native programming language)
- New channel and reseller programs for partners .
As your organisation transitions into the digital economy it creates new opportunities to generate value. Your organisation is collecting and generating more and more data every day. The exposure of organisational data through APIs enables your customers, partners and peers to innovate, creating new digital experiences and enabling new outcomes for Australian Citizens and Enterprises.
One of the first things to occur when an organisation opens the data flood gates is that your partners will request API services with the ability to create and update your data holdings.
Embracing new risks can be challenging for government organisations who are held to a higher level of expectation when compared to some of their private sector counterparts. Data is one of the most valuable organisational assets and there is often a tendency to heavily govern or limit access. This may be appropriate but may unduly limit innovation and productivity.
Matt Lewis, Managing Director - Capability Wise, will describe how his organisation has been working with various Australian Government agencies to help them better understand the motivations, desires and needs of their key API Consumers. This is preparing them to deliver secure, integrated and event-driven government services and responsive policy interventions.
In this session, we will explore the challenges of enabling integration agile teams. The shift from CoE to a Composable Enterprise requires organizational change. Agile teams are fundamentally self-organizing and we will explore what that means, how to enable it, and what the boundaries of a self-organizing team should be.
The number of microservices running in enterprises increases daily. As a result, service composition, governance, security, and observability are becoming a challenge to implement and incorporate. A “cell-based” architecture is an approach that can be applied to current or desired development and technologies to address these issues. This technology-neutral approach helps cloud-native dev teams become more efficient, act in a more self-organized manner, and speed overall release times.
In this keynote, Asanka will introduce the "cell-based" reference architecture, which is API-centric, cloud-native, and microservices-friendly. He will explain the role of APIs in the cell-based approach, as well as examine how real applications are built as cells. Asanka will explore the metrics and approaches that can be used to measure the effectiveness of the architecture and explore how organizations can implement the cell approach.
Successful digital strategy requires the ability to change and adopt to establish your digital presence. APIs create the connectivity required to share enterprise data and digital capabilities across many channels over the Internet. So how do you go about creating and managing an API program while navigating the inherent challenges of exposing your internal capabilities outside the enterprise and sustaining it? In this session we will look at how to craft a successful API strategy.
Not long ago, Australian Catholic University (ACU) was among the many organizations working through a legacy of point-to-point interfaces among its enterprise application portfolio.
Challenges centering around enterprise-level data ownership, identifying single-source of truth, and visibility of data sharing between business systems were further aggravated by a need for higher levels of maturity in information management practices such as data lifecycle management, information security, data flow visibility and accountability within the university.
These issues mandated the IT directorate to introduce a central data sharing platform – the Enterprise Integration Hub (EIH), allowing the university to embark on Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and pave the way for an API-based ecosystem enabling seamless integration among internal and external systems and partners.
Over the past 18 months, the University has created APIs around student datasets and integrated with a purpose-built student portal and public websites. Student datasets are also being shared through the API cloud with external partners in a secure manner. Currently, we are working on human capital management datasets and are sharing these through the latest version of WSO2 Enterprise Integrator.
Enabled by the API-centric integration development processes and platform, ACU in the very near future will also develop microservices bringing better mobility and service options to the wider university stakeholders as well as exploring potential monetization opportunities with industry partners and employers through the platform.
As businesses increasingly adopt APIs to expose their services, it’s important to make sure they are integrated and secure. That’s why today, identity plays an important role in securing APIs and is no longer a mere SSO or an enterprise security project. All such identity “projects” that deal with securing APIs, bridging and federating identities, and managing user consent, eventually become a part of a larger digital transformation journey.
Customer identity and access management (CIAM) is one of the best examples of an IAM-driven, integration project. APIs and integration, scalability, strong & adaptive authentication, analytics, security, and privacy are key pillars of CIAM. Thus, it’s vital that IAM is considered a key enabler for integration agility.
This talk will illustrate why IAM should be top of mind for your enterprise’s success, and how you can leverage it in your transformation journey.

The industry seems to be moving away from pure open source businesses. WSO2 is going the opposite direction, maintaining a strong commitment to open sourcing our products and open sourcing even more of our IP, building communities, making expertise available to our customers, and bringing transparency to our business culture and operations. This session explains why we believe our strategy of openness is fundamental to the success of WSO2 and our customers.
