Sneak Peek into SAP Gateway and API management Program at SAP TechEd, 2015 at Las Vegas on Oct 19-23, 2015

After initiating the strategic partnership with Apigee last year, SAP delivered API management on-premise solution based on the Apigee Edge intelligent API management platform in 2014. This year, in June 2015, SAP launched SAP API Management, cloud offering powered by HANA Cloud Platform that provides scalability to meet demand as needed at low investment cost, amortized over a subscription model. Since its launch, there has been tremendous interest from customers as these products provide quick, easy and low-investment solution for digital transformation of your business.

Running on SAP HANA® Cloud Platform, the SAP® API Management technology enables organizations that publish APIs to share digital assets and processes. It also enables developer communities to consume digital assets with ease in new channels, devices, and user interfaces. Learn more about it at SCN API Management Community. SAP Gateway is a technology that enables a simple way to connect devices, environments and platforms to SAP software based on OData standard. SAP Gateway is one of the important API sources that work seamlessly with the API management solution. Learn more about it at SCN Gateway Community. Below is an overview of how SAP API management integrates with the SAP product family including SAP Gateway:

Presenter: Ed Anuff, VP of Product Strategy at Apigee

Title: API-First: The New Enterprise Architecture For Systems of Engagement
Abstract: Many developers and architects who are very familiar with the principles of SOA are confused about all the talk of APIs. Ed Anuff will discuss why APIs are core to your enterprise’s “Systems of Engagement” and why they are different than “Systems of Record” technologies such as ESBs and SOA.  He’ll explore the latest trends in API design such as experience-based APIs that are designed to power end-user interactions across devices and mobile apps, as well as the emerging use of micro-services to use API best practices to assemble web-scale composite applications.
