Shamir Karkal, Head of Open APIs at BBVA

BBVA is a very large global bank and we have an amazing set of capabilities in things like compliance, legal, technology… Our customers, we have a very large customer base and we use our capabilities to serve these customers. The Open Platform is how we take those same capabilities and allow third parties.

This is the perfect moment to do this, because there is a whole revolution happening in the financial and the technology space. What the Open Platform does is support that innovation. And, by supporting it, we make that ecosystem move much faster. In the end, we enable this whole revolution to happen.

You can go to today, we will explain the API’s that we have available today.

Joshua Reich, CEO and cofounder at Simple

If you want to build a completely new experience, that leverages new technology, Open Platform allows you to take off-the-shelf a real time core that’s designed for technologists. You have real modern, RESTful APIs that are well-documented, have the same standards of API that you’d expect from any other technology company.

Jaime Sánchez-Laulhé, CEO at Geoblink España

There are a lot of companies with a huge capacity for innovation. Having this new source of data will allow them to do things that they can’t even imagine right now.

“Sometimes you have to be the change that you want to see in the world”.
