7 Global Movements That Are Evolving The Story of APIs

Bill Doerrfeld
Nordic APIs

APIs are a global phenomenon, the lingua franca for international business. Now, with bold EU regulations and new entrants, the API industry continues to evolve in exciting directions. In this talk, I’ll outline seven major API economy shifts and describe what repercussions these have on how APIs are perceived, marketed, and elevated into business critical platform decisions. I’ll tackle major growth indicators, using public API data, and examining niche sectors, IPOs, and acquisitions in the API space as evidence. I’ll describe ground-breaking regulation affecting the global API game, such as GDPR and PSD2, outlining the incumbents these initiatives affect. I’ll also describe more subtle undercurrents such as the politics of important API legal issues as well as strides toward achieving open standards around API design. By the end, the viewer will have an introductory footing on the current and future global API landscape.
