DUBLIN, September 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

The "Banking as a Platform: API Technology Presents Opportunity to Financial Institutions" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

Banking long entailed a visit to a solid, citadel-like building that served as a repository of assets and financial knowledge. But we've become accustomed to a more open design in branch offices. Form is following function. Banking is becoming a more open and fluid undertaking, and FIs are adopting variations of the "banking as a platform" (BaaP) strategy to position themselves for the rapid pace of change underway.

Modularity and standardization of service delivery component outputs empowers financial institutions to configure themselves and their solution sets to fit the individual needs of consumers, according to the research report, Banking as a Platform: API Technology Presents Opportunity to Financial Institutions.
