GraphQL APIs - Use cases and IBM StepZen Graph Server Webinar

 View Only
When:  May 31, 2023 from 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM (ET)


GraphQL is a form of API that allows the requester to ask for specific sets of data and get exactly those data back (irrespective of how many backends the data is assembled from). However, building a scalable, performant, secure GraphQL API is not easy. IBM’s StepZen Graph Server enables the API creation through composition of building blocks, and each building block encapsulates one or more backends (databases, APIs, SOAP services, and other GraphQL APIs). And at run-time, StepZen optimizes the execution of the query to deliver the performance that is needed by the applications.

In this webinar, we will walk through the use cases, and the technology from IBM StepZen Graph Server that delivers on those use cases.

Join us to learn about:

  • GraphQL and its use cases
  • A simple way of creating GraphQL APIs using IBM StepZen Graph Server
  • What it takes to put GraphQL in production
  • How StepZen and IBM API Connect deliver the best APIs and API Management, together
