The Emergence of API Platforms, 2020: Open Banking & Payments Drive New Business Models - ResearchAndMarkets.com

The "The Emergence of API Platforms: Open Banking and Payments Drive New Business Models" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The publisher has released a report describing the technical and regulatory challenges delaying the implementation of the European Union's PSD2 Open Banking mandate and contrasts that with the rapid growth in new application programming interface (API) driven platforms that operate in the cloud. There has been a surge in platform-as-a-service (PaaS) solutions utilizing APIs.

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.

Highlights of the Research Report

  • Identifies the issues that have delayed, and will continue to delay, broad adoption of the EU Open Banking initiative
  • Identifies APIs currently available from major U.S. banks as a contrast to the APIs mandated under PSD2
  • Discusses the new cloud-based platform products and services released by Visa and Mastercard that support and challenge the E.U. initiatives
