2017 ignite User Conference

OCTOBER 16—17, 2017

New York City


Over the last year, the API economy has brought tremendous change. This event is designed to bring attendees up to speed with new API trends, strategies, and best practices, as well as to build a network of peers that will set the pace and even lead advances in the API lifecycle space.

During the two-day ignite API Product Management User Conference, attendees can expect to hear about current and future API product strategy, get a peek at the ignite roadmap, and share best practices and experiences among the ignite user community who are all at different stages of rollout. Join us to see how large enterprises like Anthem, Citi, ACI Universal Payments, Walmart, and CNA are using ignite to transform their organizations by building and leveraging a business-led API Portfolio.

ACI Universal Payments currently manage $15 trillion dollars a day. The payments market is a space undergoing rapid disruption and a successful API Product Management is critical to success.
