Digital banking, understood as the digitalisation of traditional banking activities through the application of technologies that ensure end-to-end processing of financial transactions…
Banks have been chasing digital transformation ever since the creation of FinTech, when tech giants started imposing changes and creating new platforms for doing business.
Nowadays, banks must yield their highest return on investment by transforming their business through implementing and investing in innovative technology solutions that will drive productivity, lower their costs and risks, and deliver user centricity – for customers and employees.
As financial institutions look to enhance their customers’ online banking experience, a number of them are looking are blockchain technology as a way to accelerate the payment process and cross-border transfers. IDC forecasts that “applications surrounding complex, multi-party transactions or intermediaries demonstrate the largest benefits of implementing a blockchain solution.”
Currently, the implementation of mission-critical applications and cloud-based platforms to improve financial systems is fundamental for delivering fast, secure and efficient services in real time and offering better customer service with a direct connection to clients.
Whatever their religious background banking consumers want speed, efficiency and privacy. In other words, a smarter banking experience. The scope of fintech is widening as is the market for its own services and products. It’s getting competitive, but credible transactions need to be handled with much care. So how does Shari’a compliance work in this space now? Who are the main beneficiaries – and when will they see the benefits for real? World Finance gets startling, innovative responses from company managing director Robert Hazboun in an exclusive interview on the cutting edge direction and speed of Islamic Finance in 2023 and beyond.
Digital transformation is underway in wealth management, as it is elsewhere. Clients demand instant gratification. Digital transformation is changing the customers’ expectations. It is also making it easier for banks to meet – and beat – those expectations.
The Islamic (interest-free) model has encouraged innovation, both in terms of product offerings and business support. In a break from convention, Islamic banks aim to function as true financial partners for their clients, as opposed to taking on the old-fashioned role of bank as lender.
“Our digital banking platform is embedded in the DNA of our universal banking applications (ICS BANKS and ICS BANKS ISLAMIC). Therefore, agility is seamlessly reflected in all the universal banking applications’ products across all touchpoints, without the need for complexity or interfaces.”
During Oracle OpenWorld 2018, Ghassan Sarsak, Chief Technology & Innovation Officer, ICS Financial Systems Limited took to the stage to discuss blockchain in the banking industry.
Wasting time means losing money. That is what digital era businesses cannot bear, and very soon the speed of traditional bankers and banking methods will be comparable to a steam train being placed next to a modern Transrapid i.e. the banking technology of the future.
Agile fintech players offering a range of services have built tremendous customer bases, taking business from the traditional banking network.
