Follow iSOA to IBM’s Interconnect: API Management Session Recommendations

Our CTO, Bryon Kataoka, has shared his observations on Interconnect in his recent blog post View from 40,000 Feet: IBM’s InterConnect 2017 Conference March 19th – March 23rd including an introduction to his speaking sessions this year.  This is Bryon’s 9th year in a row presenting at IBM’s Interconnect (previously Impact), and, as you will read, continues to be focused on API management.  He has led our team in recent client success with IBM’s API Connect, and assisted IBM in developing the certification test that will be available at Interconnect.
