Connecting digitally is the new normal. South East Asia’s adoption rate, already fast, has shifted into hyper-speed as all sectors of the economy seek to digitise their service delivery to connect with their customers.

From financial institutions to fintechs, retailers to restaurants, governments to gamers, hotels to hospitals, connecting through digital ecosystems is the way to stay safe and stay in business.

Key to this race to digitise are APIs: enabling businesses to join people, data and systems to deliver services.

​Apidays Singapore 2020 will dig deep into both the business and technology of APIs: how firms are building partner ecosystems, implementing API-first architectures, and migrating from monoliths to microservices.

Incumbents and startups alike are building marketplaces and connecting partners to offer their customers a seamless experience:

  • Banks are building partnerships as diverse as investing, ecommerce, telecommunications, property and travel
  • Insurers are becoming “plug-and-play” so partners can embed insurance into their customer’s journey
  • Ride-sharing firms and ecommerce marketplaces are branching into payments
  • Healthcare providers are delivering services via telemedicine, connecting providers with digitised patient records
  • Governments are licencing virtual banks, building real-time payments infrastructure, connecting trade, and driving “Government-as-a-Service”

Underpinning all this is that most versatile of building blocks: the API (Application Programming Interface).
