Oracle NetSuite creates Banking as a Service platform

Due to the proliferation of innovative fintech firms disrupting the financial services industry, there is a growing awareness among banks that they need to rethink traditional business processes to keep pace. According to Forrester Research’s 2018 banking technology predictions: “More than 50% of banks will fail to exploit open banking, starting down the slow, painful path to becoming an unintentional utility.”

Oracle NetSuite hope their new Banking as a Service platform will be able to help banks adapt to this new era of banking. According to a spokesperson, this unique open banking approach “strengthens bank-to-customer relationships and helps banks create new business models and revenue streams with end-to-end business process automation that is fast, reliable and provides strong security controls.”
