Overview

Open Banking – the introduction of new services and more choice for customers and increased competition across Financial Services - has been the dream of regulators for many years. The introduction of the Second Payment Services Directive (PSD2) has made this dream a reality across Europe.

Third party developers can now build applications and services around customer data held by financial institutions using Open APIs. This raises interesting challenges and exciting opportunities for both banks and service providers as we move into a new era of Open Banking.

Open Banking and the power of partnerships

We work extensively with our alliance partners Accenture and Microsoft to help our clients make the most of the opportunities provided by Open Banking. Collectively we employ some of the World’s leading experts in Open Banking, practitioners with first hand experience of delivering successful projects for major Financial Services organizations.

We gathered six of our best to ask them burning questions on Open Banking. Watch the videos below to hear their answers.

Our "six" are Paul Bowen and Mohan Naidu from Avanade, Amit Mallick and Thomas Paar from Accenture and Richard Peers and Howard Bush from Microsoft.

    The Azure API management accelerator

    Financial services firms need to react quickly as Open Banking becomes a reality in many markets. They need to develop, test and validate new value propositions faster and more effectively than their competitors.

    That’s why Avanade and Accenture have created a unique API management accelerator, hosted on Microsoft Azure. The accelerator enables firms to fast-track innovation with Open APIs and provides them with the ability to market-test new value propositions and engage with innovative fintechs and partners via a marketplace model.
