Roundtable, January 14, 2016
Greetings, Boston SIM
Topic: Application Integration in the API Economy
Many organizations have implemented a SOA or Middleware
layer and are now working on an API strategy.
As mobile applications become ever more critical, a solid SOA layer and
API architecture is a key success component. As SaaS solutions become more
prevalent and best-of-breed comes back in fashion, a solid integration layer is
essential for keeping data secure and reducing implementation complexity, time to
market, and cost. Where are you on your SOA and API journey?
Madhavan Munisamy and Eric Esiason from Citizens Financial
Group will facilitate a discussion about Application Integration trends,
challenges, and best practices. You will have the opportunity to learn from other
SIM practitioners and draw on Madhavan and Eric’s experiences and expertise.
Bring your questions, your successes, and your frustrations.
Madhavan has more than 20 year of IT experience mostly in
the banking and utility sectors with roles including systems engineering, ERP
applications, and integration solutions. At Citizens he is responsible for
plan, build and run aspects of critical integration services (SOA) used by all
consumer applications in the bank. Prior to this role he was at NGRID focusing
on the ERP and EAI practice.
Eric has more than 20 years of IT experience in the
restaurant and retail sectors with leadership roles ranging from store systems
to application development. Prior to his current role on the Middleware
Leadership Team at Citizens, he led the implementation of the integration layer
and introduction of SOA concepts at BJ’s Wholesale Club.
