According to Forrester’s David Mooter, the demand for real-time data has exploded over the past year due to shifts in consumer behavior. From the need to keep retail inventory information up to date for buy online/pickup in store, to providing access to real-time patient data for telehealth appointments, traditional point-to-point integration simply can’t coordinate information fast enough to keep up with the market.

However, event-driven architecture coupled with a solid API strategy can make data available in real time. Join David Mooter and PK’s Lou Powell as they demonstrate how APIs create frictionless access to real-time data, delivering more value at the current pace of demand. You will learn:

  • How event-driven architecture enables business transformation and not just technical design
  • Common event-driven architecture design patterns
  • API design patterns that complement event-driven architecture
  • A maturity model for API and event management
