Digital transformation continues disrupting banking & financial services, demanding a cultural shift in Fintech.

Digital payments, card less transactions, mobile deposits and other self-service options in both Business-to-Business (B2B) and Business-to-Consumer (B2C) markets are forcing banks and financial service organizations to transition to Open Source. Consumers’ demands are requiring the Fintech industry to be more strategic, efficient and comprehensive to compete in an aggressive, global, 24/7/365 marketplace, manage increasing data storage and comply with mandated regulations that require transparency. For example, banks are implementing standardized Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to power even their most basic services with Open Source running ATMs, mobile banking apps, Bitcoin, blockchain and an array of additional digital services.

As Open Source technology solutions become the norm, banks and financial companies are shifting to “as a Service” industries. Banks are introducing more digital products. Financial firms are leveraging Open Source Software (OSS) to develop customer-centric tools and discovering it is significantly easier to do today than compared to the past.

As a result of this movement towards Open Source, just about any company has the capability to offer financial services. As further evidence we are transitioning into an open world, the number of global, open banking customers is expected to grow at an average annual rate of nearly 50% with nearly 64 million users by 2024, according to Statista.
