The report also highlights TCS' engagements as Best in Class examples across various categories such as open banking strategy and roadmap, open banking application development and maintenance, and open banking enablement.

Banks are looking to leverage ecosystems as part of their Business 4.0 strategy. Towards that, they are increasingly adopting open API models and open banking while building up their digital core,” said K Krithivasan, President and Global Head, Banking, Financial Services and Insurance group, TCS. “This recognition of our leadership from an independent, third-party research firm is a validation of our vision, capabilities, and market impact in this area.”

TCS has developed integrated Open Banking offerings and solution capabilities consisting of Foundation Accelerators, Assessment and Readiness Kits, Sandbox Services, an API marketplace, and an Open Data Fabric to help banks comply with open banking regulations and go beyond. TCS also leverages its Co-Innovation Network (COIN®) that includes fintech collaborations, to accelerate customers’ Open Banking aligned digital transformation journeys.

Assessment Kit and Use Case Catalogue: Covers readiness assessment, strategy definition, and roadmap creation. Based on their business strategy, banks can choose from a curated list of use cases across consumer, SME, and corporate banking domains.

Accelerator Hub: Contains (i) pre-built software components for consent management, TPP management, strong customer authentication and a set of pre-configured APIs as per UK open banking specs,  (ii) a micro-services enabled sandbox solution on cloud and a friendly TPP testing kit to accelerate the open banking adoption journey.

The banking industry is leveraging a collaborative approach to shift from a product- and service-centric mode to a lifestyle and experience orchestration model.
