A composable enterprise is an organisation that can rapidly move to create and improve processes, applications and new digital customer offerings. Achieving this is a combination of organisational and technical challenges. We will look at how building and managing APIs within an organisation can form the basis of a composable enterprise. One aspect that has really taken hold recently is that APIs are digital products. Therefore product management and product thinking are really important to this model.

We will look at how microservices and cloud native applications fit into this approach as well as how to bring along legacy systems. The session will include some examples of companies taking this approach and their lessons learnt in moving to become composable.
