Accelerating the Banking Transformation with Digital Assurance

Listen on the go!

The banking business is fast evolving, and individual banks that serve retail, commercial, small-to-medium-sized businesses (SMEs), or wealth management firms must make rapid changes to become “digital-first” enterprises.

However, making such a transformation entails enormous risks. Banks that get digital transformation wrong risk damaging client relationships and losing market share to digital-only competitors who are more agile and technologically capable.

To enable new business models and remain relevant to clients, banks require a solid digital foundation. High levels of process digitization, application programming interfaces (APIs) to enable connected banking experiences, and omni-channel possibilities are all part of this foundation.

Customer analytics, robots, artificial intelligence, and digital marketing are just a few of the complex competencies that digital transformation necessitates.

Banks were already seeking to make more of their services and products accessible through their online and mobile banking platforms before the COVID-19 pandemic began, to better suit the market’s shifting expectations and demands.

The pandemic’s impact is now hastening digital transformation plans, as banks rush to enhance their online and mobile banking capabilities.

The retail banking business is fast changing as efforts for digital transformation intensify to better fulfill the demands of clients. Banks will need to continue to improve their online and mobile banking capabilities to provide a smooth and outstanding customer experience.

In the midst of the push to digitize every potential activity, CIOs are increasingly focused on IT initiatives that improve the digital customer experience. Digital wallets are poised to take the market, given the rapid growth of transactional banking and widespread usage of smartphones.

According to a research by the Federal Reserve Board, 28% of smartphone users make mobile payments, while 94% of smartphone banking users check account transaction enquiries. Statistics show that technology is increasingly encroaching on the banking industry.

Furthermore, with a plethora of banking channels such as the internet, mobile banking, ATMs, IVR, and a variety of payment gateways, banks want a consistent experience across all touch points. As a result, digital quality assurance is critical in the BFSI industry.

Financial applications are complicated and require an extra layer of security because they include one factor that has the power to spin the entire globe – money.

Banks are also incorporating cloud services and IoT into their environment because of the increased use of technology. These applications for the twenty-first century must continually provide a superior client experience, deliver above-par quality, and simplify the banking process.

The cloud and data centers are used to disseminate digital corporate assets. Organizations are vulnerable to breaches because of traditional, fragmented security approaches that focus on enterprise perimeters.

A cybersecurity mesh architecture creates a scalable and interoperable service by providing a modular approach to security based on identity. To enable a security approach that spans beyond the foundation of IT services, the shared integrated framework safeguards all assets, independent of location.

To succeed, banks will need to implement digital assurance to ensure that their online and mobile banking services provide a faultless and unparalleled consumer experience.

Any digital product’s success hinges on its ability to provide digital assurance. They provide a safety net for banks, protecting them from the implications of having digital bugs or anomalies on their online and mobile banking platforms.
