Slides presented by David Garry (CTO, Nomos Software) at the API Strategy conference in Amsterdam, March 2014 ("APIs in Financial Services" track).
Open banking and APIs provide new mechanisms for delivering mobile and online digital banking services. But IT teams and developers encounter many hurdles in adopting new interfaces and APIs. Developers are key in the online digital services / API value chain. If you create hurdles for developers, you run the risk of alienating them and you block your route to revenue. The slides explain some of the hurdles encountered by developers, and suggest how they can be addressed effectively through providing Smart API Support Environments.
