At apidays, the health and safety of our community, speakers and partners always comes first. As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, we have decided to reimagine our 2020 events in a new and digital way. Looking forward to seeing you at our apidays LIVE series.
APIs are the medium of the latest wave of digital transformation. Because of all the innovation they enable and their rapid adoptions across industries, regulations have brought APIs to enter an era of standardization and interoperability.
Apidays is the leading industry tech and business series of conferences in APIs and the programmable economy.

Since 2012, 47 apidays conferences have been organised in 12 countries to cover Banking & Financial Services | Consulting | Energy | Healthcare & Life Science | IT & Technology | Manufacturing & Automotive | Media | Non-profit & Education | Public Sector | Retail | Transport & Hospitality
With regulations to publish standardized APIs, like the banking regulation PSD2 in Europe or the US’s HL7T healthcare regulation, these interfaces have become both a business and an industry challenge that needs to be addressed on the technical side, the business side, and from a policy perspective. In this context, legacy industries are being impacted like never before. Banking, insurance, healthcare, and retail are all being asked to catch-up at an unprecedented pace to avoid disruption.
At Apidays New York, you will you discover the best business cases and technical best practices to successfully start and scale an API program. You will gain insight into the challenges of API policies and learn what to expect in the banking, healthcare, retail and insurance industries.

APItalista & Founding Partner of Osaango
I co-authored the API Economy 101 -book because companies and the public sector needed a scientific research-based mind-changing guide with practical examples to API and platform economy. The API and platform economy as business models are key components of competitiveness. APIs enable scalability and distributed services, products, and organization. They affect organizational structures and culture in unexpected ways. Ecosystem customer paths run through APIs and platforms. Innovation happens faster and the customer experience is better when you build services using resources from your partner’s ecosystems. When you offer your core capabilities through the API to others, it allows your business to focus on what you do best. How are these business and IT configurations planned and managed? What does the recent research in 2017-2020 tell us? What practical methods are available?
