Sip and learn with NOV and Axway, at our live Virtual Wine Tasting featuring Sommelier Eugenio Jardim.

Manoj Kona, Middleware Director, Corporate at National Oilwell Varco (NOV) will share how this leading worldwide provider of oil and gas drilling equipment chose an API-driven approach to service delivery. Rather than incurring the cost, complexity and disruption of re-architecting hundreds of legacy systems as cloud-native apps, they used APIs to deliver the necessary functionality for IoT and other industry development projects leaving the underlying systems almost untouched.

Manoj, in conversation with Axway’s Arun Dorairajan, will discuss how NOV used APIs to integrate data from customer relationship management systems in multiple business units, and surface up- and cross-selling opportunities. Hear their story and sip with us on November 12 at 3PM Pacific | 5PM Eastern.

During the live event, you will learn:

  • Why NOV wanted to harness real-time data feeds from their drilling equipment to offer new high-value services
  • How APIs are an integral part of NOV’s digital transformation strategy (while running more than 170 separate business systems)
  • How NOV is now harnessing its API capabilities to deliver new revenue streams to the business

Following our NOV session, we will enjoy 3 delicious wines from the Napa Valley with Sommelier Eugenio Jardim, US Ambassador for the Wines of Portugal and Brand Ambassador for Ernest Vineyards.
