Emergence of Global API Platforms, 2020 - Implementation of APIs has Failed to Help the EU Open Banking Initiative Gain Liftoff

DUBLIN, Jan. 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The "The Emergence of API Platforms: Open Banking and Payments Drive New Business Models" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.


The Emergence of API Platforms: Open Banking Drives New Business Models identifies the technical and regulatory issues that continue to be challenges to lift-off for the European Union's open banking vision and contrasts that situation with the structures that have driven a surge in the availability of cloud platforms that utilize APIs to enable similar services, such as payments.

In a past report we identified the game-changing value proposition associated with internet-based application programming interfaces. This report identifies why the implementation of APIs has failed to help the EU Open Banking initiative gain liftoff even as these APIs have created a surge in the number of cloud-based platforms recently announced, commented the author of the report.

    --  Identifies APIs currently available from major U.S. banks as a contrast

        be strengthened
