Is Banking Technology Safe?
Moving banking into the digital space has led to many customers being wary of how the safety and security of their financial information will be protected. There are many different safeguards that online banking platforms can put in place to ensure a customer’s privacy and information is kept safe, including:
- AI (artificial intelligence) algorithms that are designed to detect suspicious transaction activity - Biometric-based security barriers, such as fingerprint readers on smartphones - Two-step verification that combines a traditional password with a one time code sent to a mobile device or email
Regulatory compliance refers to how well a banking firm is following a set of industry regulations that help with overall risk management and adherence to local and federal laws. The standards for compliance tend to change constantly, and keeping up with the most up-to-date compliance regulations is essential for a banking firm to remain in good legal standing. When it comes to digital banking, there is an added layer of legality and regulatory compliance that comes from having to create a secure and reliable digital space. Cybersecurity regulations can make compliance much more technologically extensive. Rather than spending a significant portion of a business budget on the expansion of an IT department, SdpX can help to not only consult with customers about regulatory changes but implement those changes as well and ensure full FRTB compliance. We don’t just consult on regulatory changes, we’re ready to do the work for you. Whether you’re struggling with FRTB or LIBOR transitions, we’re here to help you. Where appropriate, we use nearshore offices to create more financial resources, giving you the opportunity to leverage some of your regulatory change budget in other transformative areas.
What is Banking Technology?
The term “Banking Technology” is used to describe a set of digital services powered through different technologies that provide banks with the ability to offer secure and affordable banking services. Examples of these technologies include:
- Platform Work: Core banking software provides a platform that covers the core technological foundations needed to provide banking technology services. This allows banking firms to place greater focus on front end issues, such as user experience. - APIs: Application programming interfaces, or APIs, are software that allow for other banking firms to connect and utilize banking infrastructure. This can allow for an ecosystem-like business space. - Integrations: Integrations are the processes through which banks securely share information in order for a customer to easily access their financial information. - Channels: The term channels refers to the method of delivery of information from a banking firm to a customer. Banking technology can help transform these channels into a strong omnichannel digital offering, leveraging delivery formats customers are already familiar with, such as the user interface on automated ATM systems.
There are many back-end technological considerations that can become quite confusing and time-consuming when establishing a banking system within a digital space. Banking technologies can help to streamline many of these processes in order for less time to spent on IT and more time given to customers and their needs.

Omnichannel Development and Strategy
As banks begin to adapt to changing technologies and move more into the digital space, there must be a decent amount of consideration placed onto the channels through which customers will access your platforms and software. A strategic omnichannel approach places the emphasis on the needs of the customer and aims to provide seamless synchronicity across all channels, from digital to in-person. SdpX offers omnichannel services to help banking firms shift from older methods that were more centered around the bank itself to omnichannel banking services that allow customers to access their information easily from anywhere at any time.

If banking firms want to not only survive changes to the industry but actually thrive, it is crucial to embrace banking technologies that can streamline many of the more complex processes needed to create a successful online banking service.
Benefits of Banking Technology
The initial jump from traditional banking methods into the world of banking technology and digital services can be an intimidating one. Understanding the potential benefits of embracing banking technology is key to overcoming hesitations regarding the digital transformation process. These benefits include:
- Improved User Experience: Banking technologies employ the more complicated systems and software that run behind the scenes to provide an easy-to-use user interface and platform that customers can access from any device that can connect to the internet, thus giving the customer greater control over their access to information. - Customer-Centric Design: Banking technology services, such as omnichannel development and predictive AI, tend to be much more centered on the customer experience, and as such, typically focus in more on improving customer interactions. - Cost Effectiveness: Without the help of banking technologies and managed services, there would be a lot of both banking and technology resources needed to operate a digital banking service. Running this kind of system without expert help could cost exponentially more than embracing services that provide banking technology expertise. - Delivery Speed: Speed and efficiency are majorly important when it comes to online banking. Banking technologies help to deliver software quickly and efficiently at all times, and help to ensure a banking firm is operating smoothly within the digital space.
