Keynote: API Anti-Patterns: WD-40 for Your Digital Initiatives

It’s been a few weeks since we wrapped up another great edition of the API Conference but we still remember the amazing talks! One of them was Erik Wilde's keynote, “API Anti-Patterns: WD-40 for Your Digital Initiatives”, where he looks at the most important aspects of API management and illustrates which problems jeopardize the success of API management, and ultimately of digital initiatives. 

The success rate of digital initiatives in organizations is relatively low. Various studies report that around three-quarters of initiatives do not yield the expected results. Many aspects can lead to disappointing results and one of these aspects is the question of how APIs, which are one of the foundational building blocks of any digital initiative, is being managed. Erik Wilde looks at the most important aspects of API management (strategy, program, platform, products) and illustrates with examples which problems jeopardize the success of API management, and ultimately of digital initiatives. These API anti-patterns will help you to check your organization’s digital initiative for well-known issues.
