Watch the Recorded Session

Original Air Date: January 13, 2022

At long last, event-driven APIs are emerging from the business technology shadows. If you already use events, it's time to review your approach. If not, it's time to get your business and technology ready. Although eventing has been part of the business solution landscape for decades, our era of disruption and transformation intensifies the need for business responsiveness, bringing new priority for solutions built around major business events. Not only that, with the rise of cloud-native and microservices architecture, we need more events deep inside our solutions. But even though events have been around for so long, the base of industry best practices is still immature.

In this session, Randy Heffner, independent software analyst, will guide a back-and-forth, give-and-take discussion where you'll learn:

  • Why we need a fresh take on API-driven events
  • The new challenges in using events for digital transformation
  • How to avoid the pitfalls and misconceptions about event-driven business solutions
