How to architect your application infrastructure for effective API delivery
Theme:Applying disruption

APIs are changing the way we build applications and changing the way we expose data, both inside and outside our organizations. But what is the most efficient and effective way to deliver these APIs? That’s the job of the API gateway. In this session, we will look at different deployment patterns for API gateways, including:
● The centralized, edge gateway
● The multi-layer gateway
● Microgateways, sidecars and service mesh

We discuss how the implementation and consumption of your API can (and should) influence the selection of the most appropriate API gateway pattern when it comes to production deployment. As the world’s number one API gateway, delivering the vast majority of today’s API traffic, learn from our experience in this space, and how to ensure that your API management platform provides the optimum deployment pattern for your APIs.
