If software is eating the world, APIs are now eating software. Digital infrastructure is expanding and becoming mandatory – this way forces companies to think in terms of API and develop API mindset.

Today’s business can achieve its true and maximum value proposition only by connecting its entire ecosystem. When this ecosystem is digital, it implies using APIs.

New business models? APIs. New platform model? APIs. New partnership model? APIs. New distribution channels in third party applications? APIs. Using someone else’s value proposition as-a-service? APIs. Cloud? APIs… It is APIs all the way down.

At apidays Paris, we will explore the business and the technical sides of how to navigate the API industry landscape in all its different layers.
