Perry joined TIBCO in 2001 helping enterprises across a variety of industries to architect real-time distributed systems.

Presentation: Optimizing the Value of SOA Through API Management

Track: Solutions Track Wednesday 1 / Time: Wednesday 15:40 - 16:30 / Location: Westminster Suite

With SOA, businesses increasingly express their capabilities as services. Applications, decision functions, databases and so on are exposed as services over an ESB. This works well for internal consumers of these services, such as other applications and BPM. It works less well for external consumers, such as mobile applications, portals, websites, cloud platforms and third-parties.

This session features an in-depth review of the latest in API management technology, including patterns and actual use cases in projects that need to expose internal services as fast, secure and scalable API's to unmanaged clients.
