Analytics has been the key technology driver behind digital transformation in banking in the last decade. The evolution of AI/ML( Artificial Intelligence/Machine learning) transformed the onboarding process to customer engagement, from underwriting models to risk management and even new business models to managing security. On the other hand, Blockchain is touted as one of the major technologies to come up post-2008 through the launch of bitcoin. As a result, Blockchain has slowly been moving its adoption in banking & financial services from pilot stages to real use cases.
AI/ML technology has been helping Banks/Fintechs to increase the personalization of services & provide enriched experiences, to build better customer journeys, improve process efficiency, lower the cost of operations, better issue resolutions and drive customer engagement & help uncover new opportunities that can help banks navigate customer-centric products & services.
Blockchain Technology and the underlying use cases are making its inroads into the banking industry. To meet the evolving customer expectations & effectively deal with market competition, Banks are adopting rapid transformations and are redefining their digital strategies to embed such advanced technologies to redefine the customer experiences. With emerging emphasis on Data-driven models such as Open Banking, Account Aggregator, Alternate Credit Underwriting, OCEN, and CBDC, it becomes imperative to deploy these technologies.
