ING launches Developer Portal
24 May 2018
ING has opened a Developer Portal to accelerate innovation by working more closely with external developers. This first version of the portal gives developers access to selected, simulated ING application programming interfaces (APIs) they can use to jointly create new and innovative customer experiences.
In the spirit of open banking, the Developer Portal is a global market place for developers from inside and outside the bank. These include developers from corporate clients and fintechs who want to partner with ING to create new, empowering initiatives for customers.
“We look forward to increasing choice and value for our customers through a collaborative developer ecosystem,” says Mark Buitenhek, ING’s global head of Transaction Services.
The APIs will be made available in a ‘sandbox’ – a test environment, which contains dummy data and functionalities – and facilitate the new European Payment Services Directive (PSD2).
The initial simulation APIs offered in the Developer Portal include ‘Account Information Services’, ‘Payment Initiation’, and ‘Payment Request’.
ING will continuously expand the portal’s functionalities and the APIs it offers.
“By making it easy for our internal developers to access our APIs we accelerated the bank’s digitisation globally. We are excited to expand this capability to our clients and selected third parties” says ING’s chief information officer Ron van Kemenade.
