WSO2 Director of API Architecture and Founder of API Evangelist Will Co-present Webinar on Developing a Private API Economy

Mountain View, California (EastBayDaily) — Today, popular public APIs from companies, such as Twitter, Instagram and Flickr have established a strong market presence. However, recent API deployment and consumption has shown an emerging API economy—fueled by private APIs that are designed, deployed, managed and integrated into Web, mobile and Internet of Things (IoT) applications. A new WSO2 webinar will explore how enterprises can leverage private APIs to enable new business opportunities and gain a competitive edge.

The interactive session, “WSO2 Guest Webinar: The Private API Economy,” will feature Sumedha Rubasinghe, WSO2 director of API architecture, and Kin Lane, founder of API Evangelist. Together, they will explore the emerging private API economy of the Internet age. Sumedha and Kin also will discuss new ways private APIs are being integrated into Web, mobile and IoT applications, as well as how organizations are taking advantage of private APIs to modernize their business strategies and processes.

The webinar will be held Tuesday, October 14, 2014, from 9 a.m. – 10 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time. Visit for more information.
