ApiOps - Empower teams to manage their own API applications

Welcome to the world of ApiOps, where development teams are capable of managing the full SDLC of their applications in Azure API Management, without having to depend on operations or cloud teams to provision their services.

With ApiOps, cloud teams can define the boundaries in which an application can operate and assert that their governance policies are fulfilled while development teams have the freedom to create, update, and retire their own applications.

In this session I will present both the development side as the operational side, each with their own loosely coupled and independent workload to show how ApiOps can accelerate an organization delivering value faster to internal and external consumers of APIs.
