As banks take their first steps toward open banking in Asia/Pacific using an API centric approach, for many there is a disconnect between the ability to achieving the business objectives and the internal IT operations.
While there are significant opportunities through open banking, inversely if not continually executed well exist many threats. In the age of mobile and web banking services, poor customer experience can impact many in a very short period.
At this track, our speakers will discuss how open banking is re-defining rules of banking, showcasing case studies on leveraging Open API centric Agile Architecture to drive the new goals and finally, what are the best practices in moving towards open banking transformation.
