Virtual Event: APIs in the Public Sector

Transforming citizen experience by realising the value of APIs

Thursday 22 October 2020

Agenda Overview:

Application Programming Interfaces, commonly referred to as APIs, are the cornerstone of modern applications, enabling core features of complex software to be extended and integrated in many different ways. The cloud computing era has driven increased use of APIs, as has the adoption of Big Data.

APIs are rapidly innovating and transforming the way that organisations can deliver services and improve customer experiences. In the public sector, these improvements manifest themselves in three key ways:

  • Citizen experience: By integrating APIs and going digital departments deliver more accessible and seamless citizen experiences.

  • Innovation & Efficiency: APIs enable governments and the wider industry to spur innovative business models and operate cost-effectively.

  • Data & Security: With security integrated as a core component of infrastructure, APIs ensure the secure exchange of data.

However as APIs have become pervasive, the complexity of managing APIs has grown. The Public Sector Network’s virtual event, APIs in the Public Sector, has been carefully curated to give attendees a better understanding of the current API landscape, insight into the development of an API strategy, and management plan top tips, so that you can realise the true value of APIs in your organisation.

Key Takeaways:

Learn how to manage APIS to improve efficiency and reach

Understand how to manage API integration to avoid common pitfalls

Transform your product development speed

Be future-ready by making data available via your APIs

Provide public access to government data and improve partnerships with your citizens to help innovate services
