ABN AMRO: Transforming the Banking Model with APIs

ABN AMRO: Transforming the Banking Model with APIs

We spoke with Koen Adolfs, API banking product owner at ABN AMRO, about how API management helps the Amsterdam-based bank build new customer experiences, simplify innovation and interactions with FinTechs, and transform the company's business model.

“We came from the branches and went to digital with internet and mobile, but all those are based on quite some old systems and we need to speed up to compete with the big tech and the FinTechs—or cooperate with them," Adolfs said. "Doing that on the old systems is quite hard; that’s why we see the opportunity for an API platform and APIs to solve that for us.”
