APIs in the Public Sector

Online: Thursday, November 18, 2021 | Time: 12:00-2:15pm ET / 9:00-11:15am PT

Driving innovation, efficiency, interconnectivity, and the secure exchange of data

Application Programming Interfaces, or APIs, are the cornerstone of modern applications, enabling core features of complex software to be extended and integrated in various ways, even more so with the rise of Cloud Computing and Big Data. 

APIs are rapidly transforming the way government delivers citizen services and improved experience while spurring innovation, efficiency, interconnectivity and the secure exchange of data. However, without understanding how to best leverage and embed APIs, the full benefits they can deliver will go unrealized. 

Public Sector Network’s APIs in the Public Sector virtual event brings together IT leaders to provide insight into how to best go about the development, integration, and management of APIs to fully unlock their potential within your organization.
