LOS ANGELES – October 29, 2012 – Alistair Farquharson, CTO of SOA Software, a leading provider of API management, and SOA governance products, will be delivering the keynote address at the API Strategy & Practice Conference this week in New York. The keynote is titled How Does My Enterprise API Platform Differ from Facebook, Twitter and Netflix? The two-day conference brings together top industry thought leaders and practitioners in the burgeoning field of application programmer interfaces (APIs).

The API Strategy & Practice Conference aims to provide smart insights from many of the world’s leading API and technology providers. The event is held in New York on November 1st and 2nd. The conference is intended to be a one-stop event to help technologists bootstrap their API strategies as well as a place to find many interesting APIs to use. Speakers include API luminaries from Stripe, Spotify, NPR andTumblr, Apiary.io, Temboo and Tiggzi.

Enabling the API Economy
Enterprises are increasingly making business applications available as APIs in order to drive business growth and expose new revenue and partnership opportunities, and ultimately to improve business effectiveness. Open APIs allow external developers to build applications that leverage core business capabilities. Enterprise APIs are offered to a more limited group to enable more sensitive B2B or B2E applications. Both enterprise and open APIs are typically built on a foundation of enterprise SOA services. As such, they require robust governance.

SOA Software’s Enterprise API Platform is the highest performing, most comprehensive API management solution on the market today. It is a secure, robust platform that companies can use to share their APIs with the growing app developer community, their partners, and customers. The platform manages, monitors and secures companies’ APIs, ensuring that these APIs deliver the level of service customers and partners require; that corporate and customer information and assets are secure; and that the integrity of the corporate brand is protected.
