Join Amido and ForgeRock for an overview and panel discussion on API ecosystems and the value of opening up your APIs to both comply and compete in the digital age.


Making APIs available to developers, partners and other interested parties isn't new and many organisations have been leveraging OAuth in order secure APIs for years. This model has worked well up to now, however there has been a rapid growth in APIs being made available and an ever-increasing realisation that opening up APIs on an industrial scale can result in significant generation of business value for all participants in an API ecosystem.

Open Banking is a pioneer in the new API era and has created opportunities for both consumers and retailers. These ideas can be shared with retailers from other sectors to help them disrupt the industry and offer innovative, affordable and quality services to the end user.

Wayne Blacklock is ForgeRock's Director of Solution Architecture for the UK&I & ME. He has been deeply involved in UK Open Banking since inception. From contributions to the specification at working groups, to attending (winning), and running Open Banking centric hackathons.
