Let’s talk about digital identity with Marjukka Niinioja, co-author of API Economy 101 and Founding Partner at Osaango.
Why are APIs not just a technical issue, but a business issue as well? In episode 20, Oscar chats to API guru Marjukka Niinioja about the opportunities APIs can create, how COVID-19 has highlighted the need for digitalisation, the role of identity in API security and the importance of standards like OpenID Connect.
“You don’t need to have an army of coders, you just need to buy the capabilities as APIs”
