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.

9:50 - 10:30 a.m. (SGT)

With the competitive landscape and challenges in the telecommunication market, Communication Service Providers (CSPs) or Telcos need to change the game plan to elevate the industry to the next level. Going beyond connectivity, CSPs are now leveraging IT and digital technologies to transform the traditional business into becoming Digital Telco and eventually Cognitive Telco. To enable this, APIs are the fundamental building block to open up new digital capabilities and potential collaboration with multi partners for B2B2C business.

10:30 - 11:00 a.m. (SGT)

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, Isuru will explore some key integration patterns for building integration microservices.

Enabling Digital Transformation and Ecosystem Collaboration Through APIs
Akash Saksena, Vice President, API/SOA & Microservices Delivery Lead, OCBC Singapore
11:30 - 12:00 p.m. (SGT)

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.

12:00 - 12:30 p.m. (SGT)

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 talk, Asanka will introduce the "cell-based" architecture, which is decentralized, 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.

12:30 - 12:50 p.m. (SGT)

Enterprises are increasingly adopting different types of devices into their business operations every day. Some of these are standard mobile devices such as tablets, smartphones, and laptops, while other categories of devices such as sensors, PLCs, communication gateways, edge computing devices, CCTV cameras, etc. are also heavily used to monitor and control various areas that impact the business supply/consumption chain. When using these types of devices, business processes must be changed to enable seamless communications while adhering to the rest of the enterprise application development paradigms. This is when a unified set of API endpoints (UEM) representing complete enterprise device deployment becomes a game-changer.

This talk discusses how the Entgra IoT Platform offers a standardized set of APIs for making enterprise device onboarding simpler, be it standard mobile devices traditionally managed through MDMs or IoTtype of devices. The Entgra IoT Platform was formerly known as the WSO2 IoT Platform and it is now developed and supported by the same team that nurtured in at WSO2 under Entgra brand.

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.

9:50 - 10:30 a.m. (SGT)

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.

10:30 - 11:00 a.m. (SGT)

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, Ayesha 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.

11:00 - 11:30 a.m. (SGT)

This session will explore Bhutan's e-Government journey, from where they started to where they are now and where they plan to go. Jigme will discuss their government's need for a data sharing platform as critical infrastructure, and how WSO2 has met that need for the Royal Government of Bhutan (RGoB). He will also touch on the digital identity for the RGoB in terms of what they have now with the identity manager and what they need for the future.

11:30 - 12:00 p.m. (SGT)

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.

12:00 - 12:30 p.m. (SGT)

Digital transformation is reorganizing of how organizations use technology, people, and processes to essentially change not only business performance but also improve customer experiences. Vaman will discuss Aditya Birla's journey of leveraging existing applications in collaboration with third party partner systems to digitize the lending process and engaging with customers from acquisition to servicing, leading to huge gains in the overall customer experience. With an increasing customer base and the expecation of a do-it-yourself experience, Vaman will discuss on how the transformation of customer experiences has optimized costs too.

12:30 - 12:50 p.m. (SGT)

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, Anupama will discuss the importance of cloud-native architectures and platforms to build effective digital platforms.
