Summit Talk/Demo 1:  Leveraging API Management to achieve success in the Digital Economy with Fuse, OpenShift and 3Scale

An API -- Application Programming Interface -- at its most basic level allows your product or service to interact with other products or services using standard based technologies. APIs enable access to an organization's assets -- data or services -- in a simple and quick way. Just as today every business has a website to expose data or services for humans, soon every business will have APIs to expose such assets in a machine-processable way. Gartner predicts that by 2016 75% of the Fortune 1000 will offer public Web APIs and 50% of B2B collaboration will take place through Web APIs.

As an organization you want to have full control and visibility about your API. This is where API Management comes into play to fully leverage the power of exposing assets via APIs. During this session we will cover five specific use cases about how APIs can accelerate your business in the Digital Economy, we will introduce how you can use Fuse, OpenShift and 3Scale to manage and control APIs and we will conclude with a practical demo.

In detail, we will showcase how to:
-Build and deploy your API
-Secure your API via access control
-Control your API via usage policies
-Operate your API via monitoring, analytics, reporting and billing
-Engage with developers via developer portals and interactive API documentation

Summit Talk/Demo 2:  Build your next enterprise application in 60 minutes with JBoss Middleware

Business demands for new applications are increasing as businesses seek new ways to engage with their customers. As a result IT is at the center of a sea change in application development as new approaches like DevOps emphasize rapid delivery of features and greater participation by end users and “citizen developers”.

Middleware technologies such as integration, business rules, BPM , mobile application platforms and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) are emerging as important tools for DevOps teams, greatly reducing the traditional coding requirements for new business applications. With appropriate use of middleware, DevOps teams can collaboratively and rapidly develop and manage applications that engage customers and connect to back end services and legacy systems.

Join us for this session where we will show how three middleware technologies – integration, business process management and mobile – can be brought together in the cloud to support development of context-aware, process enabled, connected enterprise mobile apps. We’ll show you how to delight your employees and customers with modern solutions that deliver results quickly and yet integrate seamlessly into existing infrastructure. 

Through a real-word use-case we will demonstrate:
-Development and deployment of an enterprise mobile app using FeedHenry’s Mobile Application Platform
-Inclusion of captured mobile information into business processes with JBoss BPM Suite
-Integration of automated processes with legacy applications and systems of record with JBoss integration solutions
-Automation of business decisions guided by business rules
-Attendees will gain an appreciation for the ease with which middleware-enabled applications can support ever-changing business needs, and an understanding of the benefits of Red Hat JBoss Middleware products.
