In-Person, Hands-on Workshop with Kong ANZ & AWS

Digital transformation is built on APIs. Modern organizations use APIs to modernize access to legacy systems, liberate siloed data, and break down monolithic applications into smaller, easier-to-manage components in order to rapidly increase their pace of innovation and deliver new digital experiences. Paramount to successful modernization is an API-first strategy that leverages cloud-native technologies to achieve security, automation, and performance at scale.
In this Hands-On workshop, we will demonstrate the ways Konnect can help your organization adopt a federated API management model throughout its lifecycle, and show how the API Gateway pattern can be used for modernization.
