BBVA API Market
Disruptive 2016 will gather in one single day outstanding national and international speakers who will analyze the present and future of three key areas for companies’ future: cognitive systems, cybersecurity and cloud computing.
On the subject of cognitive systems, three experts will talk about how they see the new reality of companies and how artificial intelligence and machine learning can impact productivity and ways of interacting. They are Alejandro Campos Magencio, Technical Evangelist and Machine Learning & Cognitive Expert at Microsoft; Nadia Berthouze, Deputy Director and Professor in Affective Computing & Interaction at UCL Interaction Centre and Forrester; and Rowan Curran, Principal Analyst serving Application Development & Delivery Professionals at Forrester.
In cybersecurity, three key companies will analyze the present and future challenges facing companies in coming years. The speakers on this panel are Alfonso Muñoz, Cybersecurity Expert & Research Lead at i4s; Daniel Solís, CEO & Founder of Blueliv; and Javier Jarava, Europe Tech Sales SaaS Focal Point at IBM.
Cloud computing will be analyzed by Víctor Espinosa, from Architecture & Global Deployment in BBVA’s Engineering department; Franz Meyer, VP EMEA Strategic Business Development at Red Hat; and Antonio Álvarez, EMEA Business Development Manager at Amazon Web Services. BBVA is an example of a financial company that has successfully embraced digital transformation in recent years; Red Hat and AWS are benchmarks in cloud computing for companies.

Open banking is driving the development of new apps that are integrated into company platforms, all in an effort to offer banking services to customers. Thanks to APIs, any banking operation, such as opening an account, can be done without the need to exit an application.
Open banking has changed the financial paradigm as we have known it so far. The widespread use of new digital platforms, connected devices and technology consumers has led to a boom in business opportunities for every company, many of which are already leveraging their benefits as much as possible.
The digital transformation has not been fully implemented in the automotive sector yet, at least not as quickly as in other distribution sectors. APIs can be this sector's best ally by speeding up its digitization, especially in those areas involving the purchasing process.
