UKAuthority Live - APIs for the public good


UKA Correspondent

APIs for the public good

APIs are becoming an increasingly important element in the evolution of public sector digital services. While there may be a limited appreciation of what they are – or what they do - outside of the tech community, there is a growing awareness of their potential to support delivery of new customer-focused service models. As public services increasingly rely on the cross-exchange of information both within and between public authorities – and with digital developers in the wider community – APIs can provide a crucial enabling capability.

The UKA Live panel will discuss how the public sector can deliver the big benefits of APIs, tackle the barriers faced in implementation and develop services for their citizens on the back of the unstoppable momentum with this technology.  

On the panel:

  • Julie Pierce, Director Openness, Data & Digital, Food Standards Agency

  • Yatin Mahandru, Head of Public Sector - UK&I, Cognizant

  • (Third panellist to be announced shortly)

During the broadcast you will be able to put questions to the panel via messaging facilities, however, if you have any questions you would like to submit in advance of the broadcast please email Helen Olsen Bedford:
