Congratulations, you have a project to migrate a large legacy software system to the cloud. Also it needs some updates and the clients have a whole list of feature requests. Are you experiencing feelings of dread or exciting visions of the possibilities? The good news is that it can and should be the latter. The Open API ecosystem makes it easier than ever to take on a project like this and be successful. In this talk Seth will introduce his team’s ongoing migration project as a case study. He will discuss the primary benefits of open APIs as part of the migration and how they contribute to velocity, visibility, team focus, and feature development. He will examine strategies for identifying APIs, validating APIs, and integrating APIs into a legacy migration project. He will then discuss the layers of a legacy application that APIs can be used to address (hint: more than you may think).
