API economy is the exposure of an organization’s digital services and assets through application programming interfaces (API) in a controlled way. APIs ensure that the data extracted from one software application is formatted and passed to the next application without change. By exposing the interfaces that allow microservices to communicate with each other, vendors are able to meet the needs of specific groups of customers without having to redesign the organization’s software.

Participants will learn how to:

• Describe the digital transformation process
• Explain bottlenecks of preventing digital transformation within an organisation.
• Relate the goals of developing API to encourage software extensibility.
• Explain DevOps and its relevance to modern day software development practices.

• Digital transformation process
• Challenges of digital transformation
