Synopsis and overview of the session

The initiatives driven by the HKMA have changed the landscape for banking and financial services in Hong Kong. The adoption of Phase 1-2 has been wide and far reaching. Now it’s not just about Phase 3-4 adoption. In 2021, BFSI’s now have a significant opportunity to innovate and adapt driving more revenue and bringing more customers via an empowered partner ecosystem enabled with APIs and microservices that drive innovation.

The Open API Framework creates a foundation where driving digital transformation is expected in Hong Kong. While organizations are innovating in Hong Kong, the competitive landscape continues to get tougher. To excel in this increasingly competitive environment, banks and financial service companies must continue to aggressively evolve by taking their innovations and automations, and turning them into business outcomes.

Focus Network has partnered with Axway, a leading supplier in financial services and open banking integration solutions globally, to bring you an informative and interactive session focused on:

  • How BFSIs can securely create value via an enabled partner ecosystem
  • When and how to address the challenges around management of customer consent when delivering on the promise of open banking
  • What achievement of open banking looks like through the eyes of our customers
  • When and why you must measure KPIs via near time to real time analytics and how to do so
