With an ever-growing number of APIs, databases, and applications to interact with AND an ever-growing number of consumers that need to access data from them, companies are realizing they need a way to streamline consumption from all these new data sources. But where do we go from here?

This is where technologies like GraphQL truly shine - they are the evolution of consumption of a composable architecture. Using GraphQL, you can easily unify a massive number of APIs into a single endpoint, which is governed by a unified schema. This unified schema allows consumers to request data from ANY field that exists within ANY of the API’s associated with it. This means actions that would have normally taken 5, 10, or even 20 different queries can now be done in just 1!

In this session we are going to see how developers can automate the API unification process, how you can leverage a GraphQL endpoint to federate your REST APIs, and a quick peek behind the curtain to show how MuleSoft’s GraphQL solution, is able to provide you with the performance you expect.

At MuleSoft, we’re helping customers go digital faster by turning every asset in the organization into reusable building blocks. These building blocks are the foundation of composability. This concept of composability is seen first-hand through MuleSoft’s API-led architecture. In fact, the API-led or “API-first” approach works so well that it has pretty much become the industry standard. However, innovation in how development teams use and interact with the application network is far from over.
