Second Session: Open & Connected

It is estimated that by 2018, some 68% of all mobile apps will be powered by APIs.

In this API-driven world, organizations can monetize the value of their corporate data, and their applications’ logic by enabling their assets with APIs, and they can enrich their user experience with third-party APIs.

Since mainframes account for 80% of corporate data across the world and nearly 70% of all enterprise transactions touch a mainframe, IBM Z platforms have a central role to play in the API economy by hosting the most critical and valuable business services and data in the enterprise.

Come to this webinar to see how and why IBM z14 is the most prolific, open and connected contributor to services that are needed to power APIs in the API Economy.
