Abstract:
How do I share service APIs with mobile applications?
To be a successful business and provide increased value to clients, you need to continue to innovate while achieving cost optimization. With IBM’s API management solution, you have an opportunity to expose key business services to business partners to drive new forms of collaboration, increase revenue opportunities, and provide higher value services to your customers.
Business services are exposed with APIs. An API management solution is imperative to the success of externalizing the core services by providing easy assembly of new APIs, enabling security and different levels of service, providing management and insight to developers and business users, and socializing those APIs to developers, through communities and portals. This enables organizations to participate in the API economy, with rapid, highly secure connections between API providers and API consumers.

API Management V3.0 provides capabilities for creating, proxying, assembling, securing, and scaling the APIs. This solution also provides detailed analytics and operational metrics to the business owner and a customizable developer portal to socialize the APIs and manage applications that can be used by the developers.
In this session, attendees will learn how to quickly configure an API management solution and rapidly create new APIs from existing business assets and cloud services through configuration and a no-coding approach.

This session also includes a demonstration of the solution whereby a new API is defined that assembles existing cloud services running on IBM Bluemix and IBM PureApplication System. The API developer exposes a simple interface that exposes the Bank Location and Branch Services from the system of record REST service and SOAP service in the cloud. We will demonstrate how WSRR and API management work together to build new APIs from existing services registered in WSRR.
