PRO TALK: You’ve Succeeded Wildly in Building APIs from Z Assets; What’s Your API Management Plan?
All z Systems customers have a significant new business opportunity to extend their reach to new customers and markets with new applications and services, and to improve the experience of existing customers. This can be achieved by exposing existing z assets (which have been developed over time) as APIs for accessing Systems of Record, while leveraging mobile and cloud capabilities with new Systems of Engagement applications. In this session, we will explore business drivers with new Node.js apps for delivering enhanced customer experience (with mobile and cloud adoption), how to accelerate development and management of SoE app APIs with API management.

PRO TALK: DevSecOps is your Friend!
In an ever agile world where APIs are designed and implemented at an incredible rate, securing APIs is often a last moment thought. Security vulnerabilities are bugs, and like any other bug must be found as early as possible. In this session, Isabelle explains how developers can take advantage of an automated approach to discover and fix security issues as early as possible and how security teams can put the right tools in place to ensure that their security requirements are met as part of the API lifecycle. We will talk about static/dynamic code analysis, OpenAPI and dynamic security policies.

PRO TALK: How to Create and Manage APIs Sustainably for Maximum Integration
Enterprises are increasingly realizing the value of APIs, with a new survey finding that nearly two-thirds of companies are creating APIs for customer, employee and partner use. However, a whopping 90% rely on developers to create these APIs manually, and only 30% use API management tools to manage them. This means that the vast majority of enterprises are missing out on rapid deployment and scalability benefits while eating away at their IT resources. In this talk, Mohammed Attar, VP of Software Development for SendGrid, will cover how enterprises can create and manage APIs sustainably for increased speed, deployment and security, while placing added significance on the importance of API integration to a successful, scalable business strategy and development in today’s increasingly connected technology landscape.

PRO TALK: API-As-A-Product- The Cultural Challenges and implementation
Although API-as-a-Product philosophy is generally understood and has been talked about for last few years; challenges remain in embedding such culture within most organizations. Long accustomed to products being something that are either “visual” or “revenue generating” – it is a cultural change to think of either external or internal APIs as bonafide products in their own right.
This talk aim to share learnings of a multi-year journey of embedding API-as-a-Product philosophy within PayPal with a goal to educate, inspire and provide a path for product managers, technologists to begin their own such journey.
