Digital business revolves around IT. Service providers are increasingly using integrated data and application programming interfaces (APIs) to better connect with their customers—and new revenue streams. NEPs can do the same thing to boost their own business. Integrate data across your organization to gain greater insight into your customers, operations, and infrastructure. Use APIs to connect systems, applications, and data sources both internally and externally. Agile integration tools can help bring your organization together and prepare you for the API economy.

Join this webinar to learn more about agile integration and the business benefits for NEPs.
