Traditional industries are starting to catch up with the digital transformation, partly because of the EU- level legal requirements for industries to open APIs, even for their competitors and disruptors.

Banks and FinTech are already experiencing a forced change towards APIs and ecosystems, but construction, energy, traffic, and healthcare are needing to catch up fast. This change has been speeding up during the last 1-2 years, and now it’s time to present some of the case examples.

This event is not only for those already in the API and platform game or being challenged by recent legal requirements. This event is for sharing information, getting inspiration from customers, competitors, and across industries, as well as experts.

You should join if you identify with any of these: business people (managers, sales, marketing, legal, enterprise architects, designers) and technical (architects, lead developers, senior developers) plus teachers, researchers, and students
