Unlocking the Digital Enterprise with APIs Workshop

Transform the digital enterprise into an API first organization

An API-first strategy starts with training your leaders and teams to learn how to quickly adapt to business and technological change and understand how APIs enable differentiating capabilities.

“Unlocking the Digital Enterprise with APIs” is a series of short, digestible modules to learn how API technologies transform business outcomes and enable differentiating capabilities.

This workshop will enable executives and leaders to:

  • Understand why APIs are more than just a technical detail, enabling the composable enterprise
  • Explain the business models that APIs make available to organizations
  • Define the API lifecycle, including the practices and processes necessary for an effective API program
  • Explain the four phases of the ADDR API design process and how it contributes to a scalable, repeatable, cross-functional API design process
  • Gain an understanding of the necessary steps to shift to an API-first approach, including the tools and roles necessary

The workshop explains the essentials that executives, business leaders, product managers, technical writers, and developers need to gain an understanding of how web APIs work and how they can drive the composable enterprise. It also serves as a foundation to our “Fundamentals of Web APIs” Workshop.

The workshop combines short lectures with hands-on lab exercises help teams understand and apply core concepts of web-based APIs and an API first organization.

We offer multiple delivery options to meet your needs:

  • Private Instructor-led corporate workshops support up to 30 participants to provide opportunities for collaborative API design.
  • Enterprise licensing supports self-paced workshops to scale up your training across your entire organization
  • Self-paced learning course with lecture videos and hands-on exercises for the independent learner
