Top of the APIs: Which CMA9 Bank Was Summer Champion 2018?

The APImetrics Insights CASC (Cloud API Service Consistency) score lets you know the performance and quality of an API at a glance. It also lets you instantly compare any API with any other API. Not all APIs are identically comparable, so the usefulness in comparing two APIs depends on the nature of the APIs. In the case of Open APIs for UK CMA9 Banks, we can make direct (or almost direct) comparisons. That's because each of the CMA9 banks exposes APIs that do exactly the same things – with two caveats: Some banks have more ATMs or branches than others The [...]

Open Banking CMA9 API Performance Data CMA9 – July 2018

We first shared this on LinkedIn a few days ago, but it's worth repeating here as this data is, we believe, fundamental to the success of CMA9 Open Banking API initiatives and the banks, ASPs and TPPs who are running them. Next we're going to be diving into the core data and what it's telling us. Improvement, but still a way to go... Over the course of this year, we’ve found a consistent number of what we deem to be underperforming CMA9 Open APIs from UK banks. That number has been set at around 30%. But in a good [...]

CMA9 Open Banking public APIs: Latest News

The story of our previous monthly surveys of the UK CMA9 Open Banking public APIs has been that roughly 30% of the APIs have fallen below an acceptable score of 800 or more. While things have improved in June, confirming our suspicions that many of the banks took advantage of the multiple holidays during May to make changes, we still observe that 28% of the APIs we monitor are performing below a 'good' score as determined by our CASC scoring system. This is strongly tied to a small number of the institutions involved. Generally speaking, if some of a bank's [...]

CMA9 OBIE UK Report, April. And a third of APIs still under perform.

Competition and Markets Authority In March, we published a report on the UK's public CMA9 Open Banking APIs V2 from the OBIE. IN it, we found that more than 35% of the APIs offered were performing below our expected acceptable score of 800. And we're sad to say, the numbers for April are essentially unchanged, with 32% of APIs scoring below 800. When we analyse the banks, we find that the under-performing banks have largely remained the same. Although there's a new entrant – Bank of Ireland – which has historically been one of the better performing. [...]
