Open banking for FinTech visionaries
In modern finance, the open banking paradigm comes with a sense of inevitability. New standards introduced in Europe by the revised Payment Services Directive require banks to share account data with regulated Third Party Providers for payment initiation.
It is a revolutionary step towards seamless integrations, streamlined processes and actionable insights available within seconds and protected from cyber threats.
Data is rocket fuel for business, no doubts about it. With open banking APIs, financial institutions can use banking data to make more informed decisions: faster. Think insurance underwriting, mortgage services, loan apps or BI tools.
Adopt open banking technology to enter a thriving ecosystem of interconnected financial solutions
Open banking services give customers more control over personal data and enable them to use that data to improve their credit scoring or find better deals and easily switch between providers. Moreover, lower costs, greater usability and faster services are the biggest incentives for using FinTech products, so open banking development can be the key to customer acquisition and retention.

Challenges in open banking products
Digital money flow offers many opportunities not only for customers, but also for fraudsters. Safeguarding data storage and processing can help avoid leaks of data. It’s important to remember that security is both a goal and a means to an end. As such, it affects not only the architecture but also the app design and banking software development itself.
The magic behind open banking shows best in connection with other open banking apps, with the use of some ready-made open banking solutions or FinTech APIs. A perfect integration, possibly done by an experienced API development services provider, adds a lot to the overall positive user experience and builds a foundation for further usage.
UI and UX design
Even the most tech-forward apps won’t succeed without a thoughtful user experience and interface design. When designing customer-facing elements, it’s crucial to remember about the average level of technological literacy and accessibility for users with disabilities. In fact, building simple user flows can be harder than coming up with a complex solution.
Data flow in open banking products is important not only in terms of security, but also application performance. Poor load speed or inaccurate processing results are serious issues that could discourage users from further interactions. To avoid such setbacks, the app needs to be equipped with lightweight but robust programming tools.
