API IS THE INTERFACE
TO A VALUE PROPOSITION
We live in a customer-centric world in which organizations control just a fraction of the customer journey experience. It can only be managed by digital ecosystems that connect platform organizations. These connections are based on APIs that provide the interface to a value proposition.
Open API is an invitation. It's the customer who decides if they accept and use the APIs. Here, I want to share and discuss what a good invitation looks like and what makes customers accept it. This includes API as a product, API product management, digital platform, API economy, and digital ecosystem.
Throughout my life, I've approached every challenge with enthusiasm, creativity, inclusiveness, and drive to achieve success.
I'm curious and passionate about learning new skills and perspectives. I'm an entrepreneur and get my hands dirty to achieve success. I'm a scientist and like to understand and build methods to solve problems.
This passion and drive have paved the way to countless opportunities, unique experiences and exceptional relationships both personally and professionally.
