UNLEASHING APIs TO IMPACT THE POWER OF PAYMENTS
Application program interfaces (APIs) are everywhere. They are now being used to allow financial institutions to do business in innovative ways by enabling them to acquire data, remove areas of friction and provide a whole new level of customer and member service never before realized. At the forefront of this movement is Plaid, a technology company modernizing banking infrastructure to connect consumers, their bank accounts, and third-party applications for the secure exchange of data. During this lively session, Plaid CEO and co-founder Zach Perret shares his experiences and insights into the dynamic landscape of APIs, the evolution of bank-as-a-platform, benefits of new technical approaches, and how APIs are reshaping the fabric of payments and financial services.
