Lighting Talk: Internet of APIs – Creating a Backend for a Mobile and IoT

Location: Main Stage
Date: Mon, April 20
Time: 11:25 AM - 11:35 AM
This session will introduce the Internet of APIs, the technology standards that are emerging to govern this space, as well as the first use cases that make the most sense for businesses.

Nishant Patel, CTO, will draw on his own experience to introduce key concepts behind the Internet of APIs and discuss in detail the architecture and requirements of a backend that can support both mobile and IoT use cases.

Mr. Patel will share insights from real-life customer and partner implementations, evaluating the impact that the Internet of APIs will have on existing and emerging applications. He will answer questions as fundamental as “How do I build a successful application for the Internet of Things?” all the way to open-ended questions such as “How do I connect heterogeneous, previously divergent systems to derive value for my business and my customers?”. Throughout, Mr. Patel will illustrate the (necessary) evolution of Backend-as-a-Service and Platform-as-a-Service architectures to take full advantage of the Internet of APIs.
