The latest API industry use case paper is focused on examples in Life Insurance and Financial Services.
One of the most common discussions I have with any business is about API use cases related to industry specific scenarios – their scenarios. We are making the information shared in these discussions more accessible to everyone by publishing a series of industry specific white papers covering these and related topics. Each white paper has a consistent format that includes:
- Identifying the common business drivers for API initiatives
- Describing an API identification methodology
- Supplying industry-specific examples using the methodology
- Discussing the current state of regulatory requirements and industry standards for APIs
- Providing recommendations for starting an API initiative
The Life Insurance and Financial Services industries are becoming very active in the API economy.
These industries are data-intensive and accessing data quickly across the enterprise, using data in new ways and interfacing with partners rapidly can provide competitive differentiation. In this paper, we cover use cases across a wide variety of scenarios – internal, partnering, social, analytics, and more.
I am excited to have worked with industry subject matter experts to author each paper in this series. In each case my co-authors bring years of real world industry experience working with companies in the industry. My co-authors for this paper are Carolyn Martin. Global Financial Services Marketing Program Director - IBM Cloud, and Michael Whalen, Financial services and Healthcare sectors Offering Manager - IBM Cloud.
