APIs in Multi-Channel Applications @ Developer Week Austin 2017
We took on a wholesale multi-channel project in order to help a client in Switzerland combine cash & carry with wholesale supplies by consolidating the enterprise resource planning systems (ERP) of both of their divisions. One of project goals was to add mobile, web and rich clients to the existing custom built ERP system. This talk will focus on the challenges when adding APIs to an existing system and highlight how to deal with performance and exception management. Additionally it will show that API not only means online web services but also offline interfaces to third-parties like customers and suppliers.
