Banks, insurers, fintechs, and insurtechs are publishing APIs and making themselves “pluggable” by connecting to marketplace platforms. Event-driven architectures enable firms to process events and transactions at scale.
API Craft Singapore, Temenos, Axway and Solace are teaming up to bring you this special Fintech Festival developer workshop.

Talk 1: (20 mins) Chris Harrold (Director, Developer Programs, Temenos): Open Banking APIs and Marketplaces
Open Banking is spreading across the globe, from Europe to Australia to Mexico and beyond. In Singapore, banks are publishing APIs to enable partnerships across industries. The more progressive banks are moving beyond regulatory compliance to see the opportunities of building a partner ecosystem to better serve customers. Banks, insurers, fintechs, and insurtechs are publishing APIs and making themselves “pluggable” by connecting to marketplace platforms.
This talk will describe the impact of Open Banking globally, and an exploration of some of the APIs used, how they are designed, and how to consume them, connect to marketplaces, and ensure your own apps are ready to operate beyond borders.
Talk 2: (20 mins) Uli Hitzel (Developer Advocate, Axway): Event-Driven APIs: Building Real-Time Interfaces
APIs help abstract complexity and allow easy access to data – building innovative apps has never been easier. However, once your user base reaches a critical mass, this can quickly cause performance issues and a miserable user experience.
In this session we’ll introduce a concept that is similar to push notifications on your smartphone, we’ll talk about use cases and show you how easy it to turn existing REST API endpoints into event-driven APIs that save you bandwidth, management cost and, ultimately, allow you to build engaging real-time user interfaces that delight your customers.
Talk 3: (20 mins): Phil Scanlon (Vice President Sales Engineering, Asia Pacific & Japan, Solace). Event driven at the core – The Event Mesh
How data moves to and from applications is critical to the application's health and function, but it's a decision that's often-given little thought: REST-over-HTTP of course. But point to point REST/HTTP based communication limit the performance and functionality of modern applications and architectures – it is not a communication pattern well-suited for event-driven microservices, or for IoT and hybrid cloud use cases.
This talk will explore how modern event brokers enable real-time, bidirectional communication between and inside applications, across data centres, clouds and continents using a publish-subscribe architecture. It will highlight key capabilities such as AsyncAPI support.
