We had another Nordic APIs event this week, at Internetdagarna in Stockholm. Twobo and Dopter held the Nordic APIs track with the subject "APIs for Business". With that we thought it was a good idea to focus on the business aspect of APIs. Why should companies embrace this trend and how should they do it from an organizational perspective.
Travis Spencer, CEO of Twobo Technologies gave a talk on how to turn an organization into a platform. With the main message being that we as organizations need to act now if we want to be part of the leading companies in the future.
Andreas Krohn from Dopter and Anna Mirsch from Mannheimer Swartling presented the new API License that has been developed for companies that need a base license when publishing their APIs for the first time.
Personally I found it very interesting to hear about Twilio's approach to APIs that APIs are the new Dial Tone. Twilio who's APIs are becoming available in the nordics now, and the story of Fyndiq, the do's and don'ts when building a new platform.

The cloud and mobile are changing our societies in profound ways. The increased usage of smartphones, tablets, and cloud computing is presenting organizations with new business opportunities and challenges. Organizations shifting to this new IT delivery model are finding that they need a way to provision user accounts in the cloud. A group of SaaS providers and identity management software vendors have invested in a new provisioning protocol called System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM). In this lecture, Travis Spencer, CEO of Twobo Technologies and former member of Ping Identity's CTO office, will be presenting at the Cloud Identity Summit in Vail, Colorado, USA to explain what this new protocol entails and how it works. Attendees will leave with an understanding of the problem, how the spec helps solve it, where in the standardization process the spec is at and the current availability of products supporting it.
