OpenWorld 2017: Modernize your IT-Landscape with API Driven Development

Sven Bernhardt and Danilo Schmiedel gave a session that mostly turned into a sales pitch for a product Oracle purchased named Apiary.  It was a pretty cool tool, but not something that closes any holes where I work.  My notes are:

  • API Mangement
    • more than 12,000 public APIs offered by companies (2015)
    • Salesforce makes 50% revenue via API
      • Expedia 90%
      • ebay 60%
    • APIs are the door to the digital tomorrow
      • used to discover new business models and to evolve digital economies
    • Can support key business goals
      • Revenue Growth
      • Customer Satisfaction & Engagement
      • Operational Effeciencies
      • Partner Contribution & Ecosystem
    • What does it provide
