                    API-led Event Driven Architecture

Speakers: Prabavathy Arumugam—Lead Dev Evangelist Engineer, Software AG and Przemek Kulik—Vice President, Product Management, Software AG

Abstract: Digitalization has caused huge disruptions in supply chain management. Logistics companies are focusing on real-time information to provide value to customers and to improve efficiencies in the supply chain. As a result, having end-to-end supply chain visibility is more important than ever, and EDI transactions are often used as the document standard. APIs with event-driven architecture can empower traditional EDI for real-time data exchange. In this session, we will demonstrate a use case where event-driven API improves supply chain visibility and efficiency.

                    Open API Spec: The best way to document APIs

Speakers: Arul Pragasam Rajendran—Senior Lead Engineer, API Portal, Software AG and Meric Aydonat —Senior Product Manager - API, Software AG

Abstract: API documentation is the bridge that connects the world of API providers with app developers. Poor API documentation often leads to poor usage of your APIs. A good API with great documentation beats a great API with poor documentation. Let’s dive deep into the important aspects of building this bridge stronger and usable. The OpenAPI Specification (OAS) defines a standard to describe capabilities offered by RESTful APIs without needing access to source code. In this session, we will explore various key parts of the OpenAPI specification and how you can leverage it for documenting your APIs.

We will focus on how third-party application exposed APIs can be integrated with custom REST connectors. We will also use node.js action for implementing the complex integration logic. By exposing these integrations as REST APIs, we will provide the foundation for a self-service portal ensuring a seamless customer experience.
