What are the effects of the so-called API Economy on the financial industry

What is API Economy?

The API economy is creating new business models and opportunities

APIs in the innovation of the financial industry

What are the benefits of using APIs?

  1. Continuous innovation. Public APIs are made available to third parties, which opens up a dynamic exchange space for constant improvements, as well as the visualization of new and even unexpected uses.
  2. Improved customer experience. APIs facilitate access to services and the exchange of data between platforms that add value to the end customer by improving their experience.
  3. Final products are delivered faster. APIs allow developers to choose from a set of industry-approved open tools rather than creating them from scratch.
  4. New forms of income. A faster product launch allows companies to experiment and generate revenue in new ways.
  5. Technification of non-technical industry. It is possible for companies, even if they are not software developers, to use APIs to improve their business in a way they could never afford if they had to write their own code.
  6. Democratized collaboration. APIs enable collaboration between large, medium and small businesses, and even independent individual developers with industry giants.
