API Workshops roll on - Detroit / Connected Car - and next stop Munich June 10

Last Tuesday in Detroit, along with IC-Consult, Axway ran an API Workshop in Detroit. Many attendees from the major car companies were present. One of the big conversation topics was Social Login ("Login with Google", etc). This is something which we saw can be implemented using the Axway API Gateway, and in fact the API Gateway can be used to map from a Social Login to a local on-premises Identity and Access Management product like Oracle Access Manager (here's a description of the Google to Oracle OAM mapping in action). That allows for a hybrid Cloud/On-Premises identity approach.

Aside from Social Login, we also saw SalesForce.com integration, and the API Developer Portal in action. The highlight, though, was when Robert Foster from IC-Consult ran through the BMW Group Connected Car case study. Here you can see Robert showing a video clip of Pierce Brosnan (as James Bond) with an earlier incarnation of the connected car (the chase scene from "Tomorrow Never Dies"):

The API Workshop tour rolls on. Next up is the API Workshop in Munich next week - 10 July. Sign up for free if you're in the area and interested in API Security, OAuth, Cloud/Social Login, and all things API-related :)
