“True digital” banking ecosystems – Why and how should you bundle API Management and a Digital Marketplace?

Banks and their technology teams are identifying new collaborative business models to counter pressures from highly competitive Fintechs. But from an IT perspective, most banks are not yet in a desirable position to offer their products and services on a digital marketplace, for automated discovery and consumption by partners and customers.

For a “true digital” banking ecosystem, banks need to not only monetize internal financial assets, products and services as APIs on a Marketplace, but also gear up to offer “Marketplace-as-a-service” to their B2B customers. This session covers why and how API Management and Digital Marketplace when tightly integrated, enable banks to offer data-centric digital and physical products, blurring the lines between a Digital Storefront and a classic API developer portal.
