View the API Infrastructure provider panel discussion recorded at the API Strategy Conference.

API infrastructure often includes a developer portal, API gateway, key management, service level agreement (SLA) management, monetization, and usage analytics.

Many of today’s APIs rely on 3rd party systems, software and services, and on-premise API infrastructure that comes in various flavors. This panel discussion covers these different API infrastructure flavors, and how to choose between them.

Panel participants included Mark O’Neil (@TheMarkONeill) of Vordel, Alistair Farquharson (@afarqu) CTO of SOA Software, Steve Willmott (@njyx) of 3Scale, Chris Haddad(@cobiacomm) of WSO2, Evgeny Popov(@apopov) of APIphany, and Augusto Marietti (@sinzone) of Mashape.  Kin Lane (@kinlane), API Evangelist, moderated the discussion.
