Episode Guests

Erik Wilde
Principal Consultant at INNOQ
With over 10 years of experience in the API field, I am passionate about helping organizations on their digital transformation journeys, making sure that vision, strategy, and technology are aligned, and that they are driven by well-aligned business and organizational initiatives. As an OAI Ambassador at the OpenAPI Initiative, I promote the adoption and use of open standards and best practices for API design and management, and with Getting APIs to Work, I provide consulting and training services for API programs. I have a strong background in digital transformation, API design, and API governance, and I have contributed to many publications, patents, and standards. I have also worked with various industries and sectors, such as healthcare, education, finance, and government, to help them leverage the power and potential of APIs for innovation, integration, and automation. My mission is to help organizations get APIs to work in a truly transformative way by ensuring that they have the right APIs, and that they design and manage them in the right way.

In our latest Livin’ on the Edge podcast, we chatted with Erik Wilde, well known OpenAPI Initiative ambassador and Principal Consultant at INNOQ, as well as the host of the popular YouTube channel, “Getting APIs to Work.”

After both of us attended APIDays New York a few weeks ago, we realized that platform engineering continues to be the talk of the town in this industry. In our discussion, we zeroed in on the four main P’s for a successful platform engineering approach. Whether it’s the importance of treating platforms like products, identifying pain points, standardizing processes, and managing platforms actively to prevent fragmentation…. here’s Erik’s TL/DR of it all for successfully managing a platform.
