Enterprises grapple with a host of challenges that are spurring the creation of hybrid clouds: collections of computing infrastructure spread across multiple data centers and multiple cloud providers. This new concept often provokes uncertainty, which must be addressed head on. As more applications and computing resources move to the cloud, enterprises will become more dependent on cloud vendors, whether the issue is access, hosting, management, or any number of other services. Cloud consumers want to avoid vendor lock-in—having only one cloud provider. They want to know that they will have visibility into data and systems across multiple platforms and providers. They want to be able to move servers and storage around without a negative impact on application availability.

Today everything truly is connected to everything, and APIs are the connection mechanisms. Many companies are finding that their use of APIs has accelerated over the past 12 months, and that it will continue to accelerate during the next 12 months. APIs aren't really a new technology; they've actually been around for a long time. What is new is that they are in far broader usage today than they have been in the past. As of late 2015, the ProgrammableWeb API directory listed more than 14,000 APIs. When thinking about designing and managing APIs, a number of important questions arise. Why are APIs so well used and what effect would they have on your business? What is the impact of the expanding API economy on both providers and consumers? What are API tools and how can an investment in tools be an extremely cost efficient foundation for production grade API use cases?

Banks are at an inflection point. According to a recent research by Viacom, 1 in every 3 U.S. consumers are open to switching banks in the next 90 days. Financial services companies need to break through the competition to gain customer trust and loyalty.

However, this is no easy task as complexity increases when retail banks engage their customers across multiple channels and financial products. Gaining visibility into every customer interaction, across your business silos, and with every engagement channel is critical to making the right decisions to deliver amazing customer experiences. This white paper examines the challenges Financial Services Institutions (FSIs) face when building a 360° view of the customer to transform their customer experience and how to overcome them.
