Open Banking has come a long way in the last three years.

Join APImetrics CEO David O'Neill as he talks about five lessons we’ve learned monitoring Open Banking stacks over the last three years, and what it has taught us about DevOps in regulated sectors where it’s entirely possible for two teams of operations engineers to face off in front of a regulator and be able to prove that they are both in the wrong.

  • Lesson 1 – Quicksand.

    Sandboxes being part of a separate directory with different access controls makes it hard to keep solutions in sync.
  • Lesson 2 – Documentation Blues.

    The inherent weakness in the Open API Specification is that it currently has no mechanism to handle sequences or workflows, especially if those flows involve calls outside the spec itself.
  • Lesson 3 – There and Back Again.

    In a multi-cloud, complex world with highly secure servers all running their own Infosec rules, you can’t assume what calls look like externally.
  • Lesson 4 – Everybody Lies.

    Relying on your internal server and gateway tools can leave you unprepared, and why it is essential to have a valid synthetic sample that specifically checks payloads.
  • Lesson 5 – Leave That Frog Alone.

    You push code that passed all the build and integration tests, but no one checked whether there is a consequential change in performance.
