Many regulations are forcing incumbents that have never been open – neither on the cultural, nor the technical side – to open APIs. And these companies face huge challenges to make it happen resisting the attack by startups and innovative players who are going faster.
In the USA, it is the healthcare industry regulation that started to promote using APIs to open systems for more interoperability to benefit end-users, with programs like EHR, FHIR, LH7, etc.
In Europe, PSD2 and Open Banking UK have led the path to open banking and are followed by more than 40 countries, which are adopting API-led regulations to force banks to open APIs.
Insurance may be the next fortress to fall if the industry doesn’t proactively do it before regulators. Now, the US Federal Trade Commission is also evaluating the opportunity of regulation for the US Banking industry.
Last but not least, the Public Sector and Governments are also pushing for the use of APIs to support their open data policies and deliver value to ecosystems.
