About this series »

We are transitioning to a new era of computing, which is marked by an explosion of information consumption: new devices, new apps, and new social and business networks. 

IT organizations are being asked to keep up with this explosion of consumption, but without a corresponding explosion of budgets and resources it is difficult to overcome the inertia of complex systems of record throughout the enterprise.

We need to do more with less. And that's what the Enterprise API Facade is all about. Join this webinar shorts series and learn how to take advantage of this transition.
