JDA is transitioning from a product company to a platform company. One of the first steps in that process is API exposure and standardization. We’ll discuss how JDA grew through a series of acquisitions of on-premises applications with very limited API exposure. How we are bringing modernizing our products onto a common SaaS platform and how public API exposure is the first step towards exposing an enterprise platform that customers and partners can innovate upon. We’ll discuss the many challenges we faced, both organizational and technical, and how we approached our standardization process. We’ll touch on: Developing and evolving API standards and the education and evangelism of them Adopting a canonical model across a portfolio of enterprise products for ease of solution integration and agility of construction of composite applications and workflows. Categories of APIs styles and standards and the use cases they target Wrapping existing products and services in modern APIs and developing new, SaaS-native solutions with an API First mindset  Using public API exposure projects to transition products to a microservices architecture Building a developer ecosystem
