Payments, data and fintech: bank APIs for generating business

While fintech still remains the emerging star of the entrepreneurial scene (with a capital that surpasses €11,000 million), endless possibilities are opening up to application developers. There are more and more startups that offer tools and financial platforms in which developers have a wide gamut of possibilities for creating innovative services and new business models.

APIs and Insurtech

APIs and Insurtech

Insurtech is the fintech companies' little brother. We take a closer look at the Insurtech sector and pick out four online tools that offer their APIs for medical, driving, life and other types of insurance to the public. Insurtech is –for the time being– the fintech companies' little brother.

Caso de estudio: Big Data y APIs para ayudar a un hospital a mejorar sus objetivos

Case study: Big Data and APIs help to improve an hospital

The benefits of using APIs are increasingly being felt across all sectors, including healthcare. One example is the University Hospital of Liège, Belgium, which has managed to be more efficient thanks to a simple visualization generated by IBM’s Watson Analytics, an API that offers a predictive data analysis service. Hospital funding in Belgium is based on the activities they carry out throughout the year, as reflected in a federal portal that compiles the reports sent to the public health service.

APIs do all the work in the era of virtual assistants

There are also numerous companies with projects to universalize virtual assistants within the conversational platform sector, and what is known as the Internet of Things (IoT). One of them –possibly the best known– is API.ai.

“APIs play a crucial role in cryptography”

"APIs allow cryptography to be harnessed in a simple, controlled and audited fashion. For example, if you have an application that needs to encrypt and protect information, instead of having the algorithm built into the application, you can order a third party, the application programming interface, to protect your information. Said third party can protect your information via APIs", Alfonso Muñoz, Senior Cybersecurity Expert & Research Lead BBVA - Innovation for Security, explains.
