What is this hands-on workshop?

  • Complimentary classes to build understanding of technology, software, or capability with practical presentations and hands-on lab exercises

What will the labs entail?

  • The labs will guide the participants on how to create integrations such as APIs
  • We will use the smart connectors to build APIs with no code connecting to Salesforce and Servicenow
  • The labs will also walk-through API lifecycle management which is a very important part of tracking an API to make sure that it is agile. This in turn helps the enterprise manage cost and time.

What is integration?

  • IT integration, or systems integration, is the connection of data, applications, APIs, and devices across your IT organization to be more efficient, productive, and agile.
  • Integration is key when discussing business transformation—fundamental changes in how you conduct business to adapt as the market shifts—as it makes everything in IT work together.

What is API?

  • An API is a set of definitions and protocols for building and integrating application software. API stands for application programming interface.
  • APIs let your product or service communicate with other products and services without having to know how they’re implemented. This can simplify app development, saving time and money.
