The API Economy: APIs (Application Programming Interface) are customer facing, customizable software interfaces that enable once separate software components to effectively communicate by overcoming the inherent incompatibilities created by differing software platforms.

Monarch Inc.

The Algorithm Economy is a term for the evolution of microservices and the functionality of algorithms to drive sophisticated application designs.

Extra Co.

Blockchain Economy will shape innovation in digital platforms in two key costs affected by the technology: the cost of verification and the cost of networking.



“APIs form the connecting glue between modern applications. Nearly every application uses APIs to connect with corporate data sources, third party data services or other applications.  Creating an open description format for API services that is vendor neutral, portable and open is critical to accelerating the vision of a truly connected world.”   – OpenAPI
