PANEL: Emergent API Strategy: When Developers Win, You Win

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

A robust API strategy is necessary to succeed in today's internet economy. Companies across the spectrum, from disruptive startups like Stripe to retail giants like Walmart to major enterprise players like SalesForce, use APIs as prime weapons in their competitive arsenal. How can you not only participate in this API economy but actually get ahead and win? Having an API is necessary, but not enough. It’s imperative to provide value through a quality API eXperience (APX) to the developers consuming your APIs; enabling their success will drive your own.

A panel of technical experts, thought leaders, and startup veterans with deep API expertise will discuss their approaches to winning in this API-first world by addressing some of the primary facets of an effective API strategy: choosing the right technologies, building developer communities and delivering business impact.
