Videotalk: No Software Reuse Without a Disciplined API Management – Lessons Learned at Smals

Koen Vanderkimpen | IT Researcher | Smals

At Smals, our goal is to support a plethora of government agencies and to render administration more efficient. APIs play a central role in the exchange of data and the automation of business workflows, both within and between our different clients, and even with private sector stakeholders. The goal is typically not to monetise our work, but to minimise public expenditure. For many years now, software reuse has been a central tenet to this end, and APIs its basic building blocks. In practice, however, reuse would be impossible without a disciplined API management. In this videotalk, we will demonstrate our journey towards the increased adoption and maturity of API governance among government stakeholders using a standards based, inclusive, and bottom-up approach, and give a brief overview of our current challenges.

Videotalk: Understanding API Security Based on a Real Customer Case

Niek Jacobsen | Integration Architect | AXI

Securing your API’s, especially when they’re exposed to external consumers, is essential. It is however a tricky thing. API keys, JWT tokens, Oauth 2.0: there are so many different technologies and approaches available that it’s hard to figure out which one is the most suited for your particular needs, let alone how to implement it. In this session we’ll bring some clarity by demonstrating these challenges based on a real customer case and present our solution. We won’t just stick to architectural principles but will also illustrate how our solution can be implemented using specific technology.

Videotalk: Why Your API Platform Needs to be Open?

Erik Wilde | Digital Transformation Catalyst | Axway

What does it mean to consolidate your API strategy and establish a productive and thriving API landscape? It means to understand the main value of API’s and how to make sure that this value is realised. We look at two different ways how API value can be defined and nurtured: The short game is to look at API’s as a more effective way to support the decentralised needs that are needed for todays digital value chains. The long game is to look at API’s as the drivers of change in the organisation: By exposing all capabilities in an open way, the true challenges of digital transformation can be better met. Establishing and evolving an open API platform can support both of these API value propositions, and we will look at the essential factors of such a platform in order for it to deliver on the promise of API value.

VIDEOTALK: API MATURITY MODEL: A STEP-BY-STEP APPROACH

Matthias De Scheerder | Managing Partner | Archers

Organisations often want to increase their API maturity to be able to realise their strategic objectives. This is not such an easy assignment because you need to change the daily behaviour and thinking of your organisation. We believe you need to increase maturity by using a step-by-step approach. Each step has its role in increasing the maturity in your organisation. For example, you cannot start to roll out your API framework in the complete organisation before you have convinced your management or leads. This approach is translated into six stages. In this videotalk, we explain the different stages by giving real-world examples.
