It’s interesting to see the shift industries make towards customer centric design. Every aspect of a user’s digital journey is being examined and optimized to provide the best possible experience. This movement has completely changed retail, the energy sector, banking and interestingly enough: transit. Suddenly, IT is more than a backbone enabling internal data exchange on bus schedules and paychecks: it’s become the ultimate way to add value for travelers. This phenomenon is called rider experience, and it’s taking transit to a whole new level. What has boosted this development and how can players in and outside the transit sector learn from it? I’ll tell you in this blog.
A while ago, I wrote about the three rules of developing a PSD2 strategy. Right after rule number 1 (“don’t pout”) and number 2 (“decide on your role”) I mentioned the API. That’s where I left you, as I felt it was better to wait with technical details until you had thought about your own situation and the way you’d prepare for all the changes. But in this blog, let’s dive a little deeper. What is the role of Application Programming Interfaces in your PSD2 story? And even more important: why are they a crucial part of becoming a modern bank?
Publishing an API on the WSO2 API Manager is quite straightforward. You define the API using the Publisher app. Here you define the context, resources and HTTP verbs, indicate endpoints and set tiers and throttling to name but a few. But there are alternatives to getting an API to the API Manager. In this blog we will look at the Import / export API’s functionality. In another blog we will look at the swagger definitions as a way to define and publish APIs.
If 2017 was “talk the talk”, 2018 will definitely be “walk the walk”. Last year, the idea of digital transformation was a vague, new promise that was both appreciated and distrusted by the business world. Sure, CEOs, CIOs and IT managers all knew change was coming, but they didn’t think it would be such a great deal. But that was last year. The IT trends of 2017 (including IoT, Blockchain and rising star API) have sunk in, and new legislations like GDPR and PSD2 force companies to re-invent their business. So why not re-invent right now? In this article, I tell you how to crush digitalization using the IT trends of 2018.
