The adoption of APIs and microservices in the banking sector has seen rapid growth. While internal APIs are now commonplace, open APIs for collaboration with fintech and other partners grew 269% globally in 2020 alone according to Platformable.

Driven by expectations of convenience and personalized experiences by a young digitally savvy consumer base, demand for access to financial services by the unbanked, and the broad impacts of COVID, banks are prioritizing transformation initiatives. These are most often built around a foundation of API-based technical platforms, new business models, and internal cultural realignment.

Through this event, learn how banks of different sizes can choose between different API-enabled business models to cut costs, streamline internal workflows, and deliver better consumer experiences.

At this workshop, we will cover the following:

  • Understanding the use of APIs in banking.
  • Emerging API-based business models for banks.
  • What open banking APIs are and what they are not.
  • Emerging use cases of APIs in banking.
  • How to choose an API strategy and business model suitable to your bank’s unique goals and commercial situation.
  • Case studies and insights from WSO2's API platform and open banking deployments in Cambodia and around the world.
  • Recommended for:

    • CxOs interested in streamlining internal processes and building a competitive edge in emerging digital ecosystems.
    • Technology and innovation leads tasked with designing and implementing digital transformation initiatives.
    • Join us for this hands-on workshop and learn how banks of different sizes can choose between different API-enabled business models to cut costs, streamline internal workflows and deliver better consumer experiences.
