13:40 API ecosystems – all about the right approach
When working with multiple business partners in an ecosystem, and connecting with them through APIs and microservices, a sector- or company-specific approach allows better orchestration of interfaces and the ability to link them all via a service mesh. In this presentation, you’ll discover the benefits of growing out of the generic (often ‘start-up’) approach and closely integrating your API approach with your core business. And you’ll gain insights into how such a transition can support partnerships with other ecosystems, as Proximus and CIB share their own lessons from the world of property management.
