WHY: As the world becomes increasingly digital and interconnected, new paradigms are emerging in the financial services industry: API banking-as-a-channel and "anytime, anywhere" commerce. In this new world, secure and controlled delivery of APIs is important for banks to cultivate ecosystems of innovation around their data by leveraging external developer and innovator communities. This presents an opportunity for banks to better scale their innovation efforts and monetize data. Similarly, connected, easy payments with intelligent APIs can promote "anytime, anywhere" commerce, creating win-win opportunities for consumers and merchants.

With Accenture reporting that global investment in financial technology ventures tripled to $12.21 billion in 2014, and with expectations high for the coming years, transformation in the financial services sector is well underway.
