Moving Toward a Modular Enterprise
Session talk

APIs are leading the way for today's mobile initiatives and generating new business models as a result of the API economy. This talk examines the recent move by enterprises toward unbundling business and technical capabilities into small, reusable microservices that can be used to compose new user experiences across a variety of devices. We will then look at how leading enterprises are transitioning from today's service-oriented architecture to move toward a more modular, composable enterprise. Finally, we will look at how the convergence of APIs, mobile, IoT, microservices, chatbots, and voice will fundamentally change the way we build software in the next 5-10 years.
