Building Business Ecosystems

We are living through an unexpected step-change in the rate of digital transformation. 

  • Digital sales and logistics are “table stakes” for retail businesses
  • Governments must be more innovative, responsive and scalable in the services they deliver
  • Banks are opening their systems to consumers through open banking and consumer data rights – Energy and Communications will be next
  • Born in the cloud, disrupters are using agile methods and technology platforms to challenge industry incumbents who are fighting back with the same weapons
  • Exponential technologies such as AI, IoT, robotics & autonomous vehicles are set to change the world

Underpinning all this are APIs: connecting, sharing and composing new digital experiences. As APIs become more mainstream, APIdays is the event where you can ask, learn, speak and experience.
