All change? Crossing the tracks to banking's magical new age

Really, what does platformification mean? Companies we use every day like Google, Amazon, Airbnb use platforms to create easy, fun, user experiences. It’s happening in banking, too. An open banking ecosystem brings to life data that allows you to enter into a world of previously unthought of possibilities.

Platformification means harnessing the power of collaborative innovation – to accelerate transformation for a digital age, to unlock efficiencies, or simply improve the customer experience through innovative technology. With access to deeper datasets and advanced analytics, open banking platforms really can breathe new life into your institution.

Ecosystem players bring new perspectives and therefore more diverse solutions. Evolving doesn’t require fairy dust. It’s simply another step in a long history of banking.

In our new read we look at the lessons from the first wave of the platform economy – and explore how open APIs can help banks and institutions young and old to ‘cross the tracks’ to a new age of banking.
