API Days Nordic| Tampere | 18.-19.5.2016 API Days Nordic Conference | Tampere, Finland | 18.-19.5.2016


Program full of API economy & APIOps - containers, testing, devops, micro services and monitoring

In the recent years there has been a major focus on how APIs are deployed and managed. APIs have now taken on a more dominant role in the areas of IoT, developing beyond the role of enabling any product or service to communicate with other products and services. Developers are currently defining APIs in accordance to their needs, making them and IT services the “new rock stars” of the IT industry. Which in turn has led to APIs becoming the standard by which the maturity of an organization’s IT service is assessed.
