This, however, is only the first step: the true potential of cloud and API tech to serve as 'platforms' for innovation is far more exponential. Learn about key shifts in thinking to move from pipes to platforms, including how to move from on-premise to cloud services, the difference between 'lift & shift' and 'cloud-native,' and how cloud and API tech enables users to co-create value with their technology and data providers.
