We’ve all seen the examples of how Netflix and others have transformed their entire business on the back of publishing APIs. You may not be Netflix, but there’s no sign the API economy is slowing down. APIs are everywhere, from social and mobile apps to IoT, big data, and microservices. They’re driving your business and helping you expand into new markets, modernize legacy business applications, and integrate diverse and interdependent systems and data. So how do you leverage APIs to be an efficient way to generate new business value and innovate with minimal risk?

The basic integration architecture, as defined by ESBs, hasn’t changed for more than a decade. Most cloud integration providers still rely on an ESB architecture and their proprietary connectors. As a result, enterprise integration projects suffer from constraints of availability and reliability of these connectors that are not re-usable across other integration vendors.  However, the rapid adoption of APIs and almost ubiquitous availability of APIs amongst most SaaS and Cloud applications are rapidly redefining traditional integration approaches and their reliance on proprietary connectors. In this webinar, we will discuss how enterprises can adopt an API-based integration and connector-less architecture to achieve lightweight, quick, and configurable drag-and-drop integration that is fit for the new digital enterprise.

Open source software has become an integral part of almost every embedded consumer product. Yet companies using open source to build these products encounter significant challenges as they work to comply with open source licenses without eroding already thin margins.

Open source software has become an undeniable force in business. Open source plays an increasingly critical role in the infrastructure of both start-ups and established companies, and open source development models generate commercial grade software – often at a fraction of the cost of proprietary alternatives. In addition, open source licensing has spawned entirely new business models in which the principles of open source play a central role.Alongside these advances, the open source legal landscape has also continued to mature, providing improved clarity around many of the true risks of open source usage. Yet, despite these advances, misunderstandings and confusion regarding the business and legal impacts of open source continue to abound.

As digital transformation initiatives are gaining momentum within enterprises, both business and technical stakeholders seem to be pulled in different directions on whether to adopt a “mobile first” strategy or an “API first” strategy. Today, the processes for managing APIs and building the apps that consume them are disjointed and siloed, introducing complexity and slowing innovation. Akana and Appery.io have joined hands to offer an end-to-end solution that provides an integrated experience that goes from exposing and managing APIs to building cross-platform mobile apps. The integrated platform delivers faster time-to-market and results in increased developer adoption.

APIs enable the level of business agility and interconnectedness demanded by the digital age. Standalone business models are passé; success derives from the power of the ecosystems an organization plays in. This means that your API strategy must be built in line with the contexts and channels specific to your digital ecosystems. In this session, Akana’s guest speaker, Randy Heffner of Forrester Research, and Alistair Farquharson, CTO of Akana, will describe the role of APIs in the emerging digital value chain, the major categories of APIs, and the elements of a strong API strategy including the different roles involved in rolling out an API program.

Just a few years back, lack of a standard way to document, govern or describe a contract for the APIs acted as a deterrent to API adoption within the enterprise. WSDL 2.0 and WADL provided early support, but they couldn’t truly capture the essence of RESTful APIs. Recently we have seen the emergence of several description languages. New ways to describe and document APIs have emerged such as Swagger, RAML, API Blueprint and others, each taking a slightly different approach. Please join us in this webinar to hear how these description languages differ and how to choose right one for your API.

The enterprise has learned from the consumer API movement and recognized the value of creating developer communities to drive the adoption and productive use of APIs. Building an API community internally, however, requires a different approach from what has worked in the consumer space. Business objectives for APIs and measurements of success tend to be different for internal APIs. Security and access controls are not the same, of course, and back-end systems tend to be quite a lot more complex in the enterprise than they are in public-facing API situations.

The level of concurrency in automotive systems is increasing rapidly. With multithreaded code on multicore processors, the balance between dynamic analysis of code and static analysis of design and code is tipping heavily in favor of the latter.While not a complete replacement for traditional testing methods, testing by analysis plays a major role in effective verification and validation - as reflected in many of the safety standards. ISO 13849 makes it explicit:"When validation by analysis is not conclusive, testing shall be carried out to complete the validation. Testing is always complementary to analysis and is often necessary."

Adopting APIs is essential for any organization that is undergoing a digital transformation. While external and B2B APIs are getting increased attention, APIs are also becoming valuable for internal initiatives within enterprises. APIs unlock silos across organizations. They provide access to resources that were previously closed off by proprietary or hard-to-use interfaces.
