Challenges in open banking products
Digital money flow offers many opportunities not only for customers, but also for hackers and fraudsters. Safeguarding data storage and processing can help avoid leaks or theft of sensitive 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 design of every application.
The magic behind open banking shows mainly in the ability to connect it with other essential software products, such as asset management platforms, credit scoring services or e-commerce. A perfect integration looks and feels seamless to the user, contributing to the overall positive experience and building a foundation for further usage and engagement.
UI and UX design
Even the most secure and ingenious technologies won’t succeed without a carefully crafted user experience and interface. When designing customer-facing elements of the app, it’s crucial to remember about the average level of technological literacy and accessibility for users with disabilities. Paradoxically, simplifying the product 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 yet highly performant programming tools.
