A Next-Generation API Platform for Banking and Financial Services

APIs Unlock Innovation in
Banking and Financial Services

APIs are a key component of modernization efforts in the banking sector, fueling a far-reaching change in technology, business strategy, and even financial regulation. APIs have become key to creating innovative services, providing access to data, and opening up new channels.

To take realize the full potential of APIs, financial institutions need to build an API strategy that works from the inside out using internal APIs, leverages an enterprise-class API platform, provides a flexible deployment model, offers developers a friendly user experience, and becomes the cornerstone for future innovation.

Modern Banking Infrastructure

Although many banks and financial services firms have already been participating in the API economy, the torrid pace in which new APIs are created has lead many financial institutions to start thinking more broadly about their API Strategy and infrastructure. As more and more third-party APIs are developed, firms need to take the steps to develop the right API strategy: 

  1. Work inside out: Start with internal APIs to build up API muscle.
  2. Utilize an API platform: Ensure you have the right tooling and infrastructure in place.
  3. Create flexibility in deployments: Start thinking about APIs earlier in the software development lifecycle.
  4. Build with the developer in mind: Create an experience that is easy and intuitive to ensure adoption.
  5. Make room for Innovation: Leverage your APIs to offer new products and services for partners and customers.

The Right Platform -
RapidAPI Enterprise Hub

RapidAPI Enterprise Hub is a next-generation API platform designed to address the needs of modern-day APIs. RapidAPI Enterprise Hub is a white-labeled, internal API Marketplace used by developers, analysts, and product managers to discover and connect to internal APIs, as well as external API subscriptions. Additionally, companies can use the same RapidAPI’s Enterprise Hub as an external marketplace, enabling customers and partners to also find and connect to your APIs.

The Enterprise API Hub:

  • Integrates seamlessly with internal systems
  • Supports all of your APIs

  • Deploys across multi-cloud environments
  • Provides a dedicated dashboard for managing APIs and ensuring data security, compliance, and adherence to SLAs

Use Case: RapidAPI’s Internal Enterprise API Hub Enables a Many-to-Many Model

As companies grow and split into multiple teams, they form “software silos” with each group responsible for a specific product or technology. With limited visibility into what each team is working on, the result is often code duplication, longer development cycles, and a lack of overall governance.

RapidAPI Enterprise Hub:

  • Provides a white-labeled, enterprise API marketplace
  • Offers a private API Hub for developers, analysts, and product managers to discover and connect to internal APIs, as well as API subscriptions
  • Enables developers to publish their APIs

Customers and Partners

Companies can offer partners and customers access to key APIs using RapidAPI’s API Hub as a customer and/or partner marketplace. Through the branded Customer/Partner API marketplace, your organization can collaborate with other companies to create unique solutions and new monetization channels. In some cases, you will be able to reduce development cycles, creating stickiness to applications and services.

RapidAPI Enterprise Hub:

  • Provides a white-labeled, enterprise API marketplace
  • Enables companies to create a monetization strategy for their APIs
  • Creates a centralized external marketplace that customers and partners can securely find, manage, and connect to the APIs you designate — all using a single key and SDK
