Open Banking

Open integration with third-party platforms represents a major change in how banks manage their data.

Open Banking is the trend toward integration of proprietary banking platforms with third-party platforms through leveraging open application programming interfaces (APIs). It allows for both the seamless delivery of banking services across partner platforms and the enrichment of banking platforms' capabilities by incorporating third-party services.

Two ways in which banks are implementing Open Banking principles

Within a Bank’s Own Platforms

Banks can leverage functionality provided by third parties

  • To expand the range of services that the bank provides
  • To enhance the customer experience within banking platforms
  • To increase efficiencies and reduce costs

Across Third-Party Platforms

Banks can provide additional services through third-party platforms

  • To provide a new distribution channel for the bank’s existing products and services
  • To spur business-model innovation and the creation of new products
