AWS Immersion Day: Seamless APIM With Kong Konnect & Amazon EKS

Digital transformation is built on APIs. Modern organizations use APIs to modernize access to legacy systems, liberate siloed data and break down monolithic applications into smaller, easier to manage components, in order to rapidly increase their pace of innovation and deliver new digital experiences. Paramount to successful modernization is an API-first strategy that leverages cloud-native technologies to achieve security, automation and performance at scale.

This hands-on workshop demonstrated how Kong Konnect can help your organization adopt a federated API management model throughout their lifecycle, and show how the API Gateway pattern can be used for modernization.
