One of Japan’s largest banks is embracing application programming interfaces (APIs) to connect with customers and partners, and it’s doing it on IBM Cloud.
Mizuho’s Bank’s new API banking initiative will run on the IBM Japan FinTech API solution and IBM API Connect on the IBM Cloud and IBM DataPower Gateway. The goal of the initiative is to enhance customer experiences, offering customers personal financial management services and Internet of Things (IoT) payment options.
“API banking becomes a crucial step that helps drive open innovations by new technologies for customers, business partners, and Mizuho Bank,” said Masahiko Kato, senior technical officer at Mizuho Bank.
Masao Sanbe, managing director of industry sales at IBM Japan, added, “IBM is delighted to provide IBM’s cloud and cognitive technologies with our expertise to help Mizuho provide quality services to the customers.”
