Advisory Note: The Open API Economy - 70352

Report Details

How the Open API Economy is increasing and changing the need for Identity Management.

Baking an organization’s core competence into an Open API is an economic imperative.

It’s clear that three main trends are driving technology in all areas. It goes without saying that as digital identity is the gateway to all network-based products and services that identity is being affected by these trends:

Social Computing
Mobile Computing
Cloud Computing

While this observation is accurate and certainly these three trends are having a significant impact on things, there is yet another trend that is having just as big of an impact as the well-known troika of social, mobile and cloud computing. The trend I am going to identify is so big that I am labeling it not just as a computing model, but as an emerging economy.

Digital Finance

The emergence and prominence of bitcoin and its underlying technology Blockchain with open source, real-time payments capabilities and without centralized regulatory authority has sparked the Financial Services industry into exploring how Blockchain technology might be applied to mainstream banking and insurance sectors. Blockchain technology goes further than just a distributed ledger. Another initiative gaining acceptance is Smart Contracts that use computer protocols to facilitate, verify, or enforce the negotiation or performance of a contract or that obviate the need for a contractual clause. Proponents of Smart Contracts claim that many kinds of contractual clauses may thus be made partially or fully selfexecuting, self-enforcing, or both. Smart Contracts aim to provide security superior to traditional contract law and reduce other transaction costs associated with contracting. (...)
