“Across other industries we’ve seen the transformational effect of APIs,” said Sumit Oberai, Senior Vice-President, Digital Technology, RBC. “By providing external developers, industry innovators and clients with access to select RBC APIs, we have the opportunity to increase connectivity, create new tools and experiences for clients, and enable open and innovative collaboration to improve the future of banking.”
APIs allow applications to talk to other applications. This communication layer allows third party applications secured access to select data and capabilities from RBC. Once registered and approved to use the RBC Developers™ portal, external parties will be able to browse and learn about the APIs offered and build, test and deploy their applications using these APIs.
RBC is initially offering five API packages in the portal. Each API package delivers the data elements, orchestration and business logic required to deliver the end to end business process. Additional API packages will be added in the future.
