This event – CXO Series: Create API Value Chains in Digital Ecosystem is organized by PointStar and taking place at Le Meridien, KL on 18 Oct 2022.
Keynote presenters from Google Cloud and PointStar shared insightful information at the event on how Apigee enables businesses today to grow and scale across the API digital value chain.
API Value Chain in Business
PointStar’s CEO, Justin Lee, spoke about the emerging trend of API-first digital economies and the opportunities that APIs bring.
Accelerate with Google: Google Cloud One Ecosystem
The presentation by Johnny Benitez from Google Cloud Malaysia focused on the advantages of managing APIs in a unified environment and how to get started with Google hybrid and cross-cloud API management.
“By 2025, cloud-native platforms will serve as the foundation for more than 95% of new digital initiatives — up from less than 40% in 2021,” he said. Cloud-native platforms will become the default for new application development and digital initiatives.
He highlighted how Google Cloud Solutions such as Software Delivery Shield, Apigee, Kubernetes, and Anthos can help businesses confidently accelerate with API strategy in one place.

Business and Regulatory Challenges in Cloud Ecosystem

Uncover Security Concern on Digital Value Chain
