SEEBURGER and Odette on APIs

Online event to feature experts from Odette, Volkswagen and Draexlmaier


Bretten, Germany - SEEBURGER, the business integration company, will host their institutional partner, the European Automotive Association Odette, in an online event featuring critical information on the application and implementation of APIs and API security in automotive supply chain processes.

Odette will share progress on an upcoming standardized approach designed to make API implementation easier, faster and more scalable for companies.

As automotive manufacturers and suppliers become more digitalized, their use of APIs enables real-time access to information such as inventory levels, order status and the pinpointed location of a shipment. Odette will provide standards, tools and services to assist companies with effective API implementation.

Using APIs to Achieve Real ‘Real-time Visibility’ in the Automotive Supply Chain will take place 24 January 2023 at 15:00 CET, 9:00am EST. Odette and SEEBURGER will be joined by technology and supply chain experts from Volkswagen and Draexlmaier. The online 90-minute event targets API and IT leaders and managers at OEMs and Automotive industry suppliers.

As digitalization proliferates, companies are taking advantage of API technology more than ever to improve business processes,” says Joerg Walther, Odette International. He adds, “implementation standards will help companies, and as a result, the supply chain, to more quickly and easily benefit from APIs.”

The event topics include:

  • Where API technology fits in the overall digital scenario
  • Which supply chain processes are ideal for APIs
  • Security implications of implementing API data exchange

We are pleased to be hosting this event with our institutional partner, Odette. Automotive companies all over the world can benefit from this information,” says Axel Haas, Co-CEO, SEEBURGER. “As APIs have become an essential part of business, standardization and security enhance the benefits for all.”
