Organizations need strategies for their APIs – especially those in financial services. APIs enhance the customer experience, streamline fintech collaboration, and support industry initiatives like open banking. But how to implement them isn’t always clear.  

Part 1 of this series focuses on how the maturity of API standards is fueling innovation within financial services, particularly at the enterprise level. The panel will discuss how the right API strategy leads to a competitive advantage, how digital trends are impacting financial services, as well as API standards, quality, and adoption. The panel will also talk about establishing an API brand and digital platform as well as industry trends and challenges. There will be time for live Q&A. 

Part 2 of the series includes a demonstration of implementing industry best practices using SwaggerHub and ReadyAPI, enabling organizations to scale their API development and testing.
