In this session Alex showcases an example of how applications can leverage public APIs. Digital transformation is fundamentally reshaping the automotive industry, thanks to changing customer expectations and the rise of the cloud, advanced analytics, the Internet of Things (IoT), and other breakthrough technologies.

And vehicles aren’t just getting you from A to B anymore with a set of features you can update only every 5 or 10 years. They’re now at the heart of a software‑defined ecosystem that relies on an agile environment.

Built on Microsoft’s cloud, the Microsoft Connected Vehicle Platform (MCVP) offers a set of services that empower car manufacturers and the larger ecosystem by enabling manufacturers to provide custom services for their vehicles.

While working on the MCVP platform, Microsoft Consulting Services (MCS) realized that they needed a way to access APIs outside the platform, and to provide a secured, controlled, automated, measured, scalable, and global architecture. This lead to the engagement between MCS and NGINX.
