IT Visionaries Podcast: How to connect the world using APIs and integration

I had the pleasure of joining Ian Faison, founder of Mission.org, to record an episode for the podcast, IT Visionaries. The episode is part of a series hosted by the Salesforce Customer 360 Platform to discuss emerging trends in IT and how you can apply those trends at your organization. 

I’ve shared the top five insights from our conversation below. My main hope for you when listening to the podcast and reading this list is that you start thinking about APIs and integration as the drivers of change within your organization.

Digital transformation (DX) engine scenario

In my first blog, I explained what digital transformation is, why connectivity and integration is vital for a successful digital transformation, and how MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform is an engine to power that digital transformation.

Divide and conquer: Decoupling API provider and consumer lifecycles

Like any product, APIs and client apps that use APIs have their own lifecycles. They each experience their own Create, Publish, Realize, Maintain, and Retire phases.
