Unlocking the Digital Economy with API
Implementing Application Programming Interfaces in Government

  • Une API (Application programming interface), c'est un concept informatique au cœur de la transformation numérique des entreprises et des administrations.
  • API-strategie zet standaardisatie centraal
  • New digital technologies are reshaping the economy, leading to the development of new products, services and business models and creating new ways for citizens and businesses to interact in their daily lives.
  • A key enabler of these changes is the use of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs).

APIs allow:

  • open or appropriately secured information and data to flow within government
  • government and non-government systems to interact with each other
  • information to be held in 1 place but used and reused in many places
  • active support for the principles for open and transparent government.


  • saves time — updated information is available through the API automatically
  • helps to make information more reliable as it managed from 1 source
  • makes it possible to share information through many sources in a consistent way
  • increases the focus on customer needs by enabling agencies to share information and deliver multi-agency or ‘joined-up’ services more efficiently.
