IBM is proud to be a sponsor at APIdays Paris event December 11 and 12, 2018.  We hope you will come to our sessions and stop by and talk with us about your API initiative and projects.

Several topics will be presented by IBM at the conference and Expo:


Creating an API Economy Business Strategy

  • Tuesday December 11, 2018 – 11:25 AM- Main Keynote room
  • Speaker – Alan Glickenhouse – API Business Strategist
  • Abstract – How do you build an API Economy Strategy? What are the best practices for API Initiatives? How should you govern your API initiative to drive success?  What is the first thing that should be done (that almost nobody does until later)?  How do you really Monetize APIs?  What roles are required? Are these different than prior roles in the company? What organizational structure changes are recommended?  What one thing will cause an API initiative to fail if you do not do it? What are the considerations for Legal and Privacy? How do you measure success? The speaker will answer all these questions and more.


Secure & Manage APIs with GraphQL?
