A strong platform strategy is key for companies in today's ever accelerating economy. While many of the component technologies around APIs, microservices, security, governance and other areas are emerging, it is still extremely challenging to deliver on the advantages platform can deliver. This talk will cover three key considerations for a successful platform strategy. Drawing on plenty of examples the talk will cover how to focus on genuine value in API Programs, how to identify true users and how to scale APIs across an organization. We will also cover how to measure the success of platform and API programs.
