With FFDC, Finastra is moving towards a marketplace/platform approach for third-party FinTech developers to integrate into the bank’s infrastructure and services in order to drive new value for the FI. This is bigger than “simply” Open Banking. Many of these third-party developers need to solve the sorts of problems that aggregators like Yodlee and its competitors solve. Let’s look at a case study with aggregation to show how it works.
What it does
FinGoal has built a Proof-of-Concept to surface Aggregation functionality (starting with aggregation) within the Finastra’s FFDC platform.
The aggregation is sold to the FI through the FFDC marketplace with data structures normalized to FFDC standards. Any FI’s users data that have aggregated will be made available to other FFDC marketplace service providers to the FI.
What we learned
If we abstract aggregation to the bank’s platform layer, we can drive: Simplicity, Cost Efficiency, and Higher Marketplace Adoption
Beyond this hackathon submission, FinGoal’s Find Money transaction enrichment will also be made available to all of the service providers of the FI.
