Company executives will also discuss creating a secure modern architecture with API and IAM at API World 2018
BOSTON, Sept. 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Forum Systems Inc. today announced it will host an event in partnership with Infosecurity Magazine focused on examining how an API strategy can reduce complexity, simplify identity and access management (IAM), and provide advanced predictions using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). At the London API Summit, leading experts will explore the best API practices for modern architecture. During the event, Forum Systems will showcase how its award-winning Forum Sentry API Security Gateway is helping customers manage their architecture principles and achieve success in innovation and security.
APIs are the central point of modern communication and are involved in almost every interaction with a digital device or service. A sound API strategy is critical for IT modernization and enables the benefits of a less complex architecture by combining and consolidating technologies. With IAM essential to an enterprise strategy, the logical evolution is to include IAM with APIs.
During the first half of the day-long event, experts will discuss how to achieve a simpler and more secure approach to API and IAM. The afternoon workshop session will introduce the fundamentals of applying AI and ML to APIs. The workshop will review the basics of ML, provide a walk-through on creating a neural network and will profile performance and security as it relates to leveraging ML with APIs.
"The increasing proliferation of APIs is generating more enterprise data than ever before. So how do organizations harness that information in order to drive their corporate objectives?" said Forum Systems CEO Mamoon Yunus. "This event will showcase how APIs can fuel data-hungry AI and ML techniques to provide businesses with real-world, actionable predictive analytics."
Forum Systems' annual London API Summit will take place Thursday, September 20, at 9:00 a.m. GMT, at The Grange St. Paul's Hotel. The event will feature a live deployment case study on the UK Biometrics Office, among other key topics including:
- Evolving Challenges for Modern Enterprise Architectures in the Age of APIs;
