A streamlined application programming interface (API) process is important, especially when it comes to the fintech industry, because well-built and consistent APIs attract business. If a bank has too many API models, the integration cost becomes too high and complex for software developers, who could then prioritize a competing bank.

API governance is a set of tools to centralize the building of APIs. Drawing on centralized resources, engineering teams create APIs using a consistent design and set of standards that match their priorities.

Among the 11 processes to put in place are:

  • Governance committee
  • Style guide
  • Security assessment checklist
  • External developer portal
