In this episode What are APIs? We break it down in today’s episode with some great guests. But a little taste: All the connected apps you use on your phone talk via APIs to get their data. So when you check the weather, says David Andrzejek, the weather app on your phone makes an API call to a system to get the weather data. Lesley-Anne Vaughan says APIs are like ordering from a menu at a restaurant. You place your order from the menu, which is like an API call out to the kitchen (system). The food that comes to the table is the system’s response to that API call. What does this have to do with financial services? Bankers should be interested in APIs because they enable the digital experiences their customers want. More API analogies and explanations await in episode 202!
