Outline :

Regardless of the industry, customers expect self-service convenience through mobile apps, websites, and online portals. This requires organizations to focus on expanding customer engagement and improving business insight.  But, how does an enterprise that relies on the IBM i make the leap into this era?  
In this session, Jeff will discuss the foundations of APIs in the IBM i environment.  Learn how other companies go beyond simply re-skinning their existing applications to create leading edge mobile or web user experiences that seamlessly interact with their vital IBM i infrastructure.  You will learn:
• What are APIs?   What about REST and SOAP?
• The advantages and disadvantages of each
• Extending” your IBM i applications with APIs
• Best practices when matching API modernization to the way users work
• Rocket’s approach: generating web services for the IBM i without changing a single line of RPG code
