    Vault Recording: TBD

    Communications APIs promise the ability to integrate voice, text, and video features with business applications -- but even if you've identified a use case, you may not know who you should partner with on the process: Your legacy platform vendor? A cloud-based API Platform-as-a-Service provider? A third-party ISV? And who within your enterprise needs to be involved? In-house developers? Business unit leaders? Bottom line: Where do you turn, and what questions do you need to ask? This session will provide you with a solid understanding of who's who in the communications API ecosystem; what might differentiate one particular API from another; clear guidelines on how to determine the right application integration strategy for your organization; and helpful tips and best-practices advice for working with developers.


    • What role do legacy telephony vendors play in the comms API ecosystem? What are the advantages and disadvantages of using their communications development platforms?
    • What are other top sources of communications APIs, and what do you need to know about working with these providers?
    • How can you make sure your communications development platform and API of choice are ready to handle your enterprise requirements? What do you need to ask relative to key enterprise considerations such as service, support, security, and scalability?
    • What are the most common approaches to application integration, and what are the caveats for each?
    • What are the pros and cons of working with internal enterprise developers vs. third-party developers? In either case, what should you expect them to deliver?
