You can hear how digital is driving growth straight from CEOs at some of today’s digital leaders like Nike. And top-flight sources are documenting digital’s part in a broader pattern: MIT’s Center for Information Systems Research found that companies that derived 50% or more of their revenues form digital ecosystems had 32% higher revenue growth and 27% higher profit margins than their industry averages.

To that end, the Apigee team has been putting together an agenda for I Love APIs 2015 that includes real-world advice on how to engage corporate boards on thinking big about digital as well as how to re-tool IT to deliver digital experiences. In this post, we’ll focus on what happens between communicating a great vision and a spring into action by digital-ready teams. We see a risk that executives and managers otherwise committed to digital... Read more...
