Integration Challenges - How Did They Arise?

eip_chimera
A single software solution to run the whole business is a chimera.
eip_best
Organizations usually select “the best” system for a specific need - HR, CRM, mobile banking channel, etc. 
eip_architecture
Innovations cannot be predicted in the architecture before they happen (biometrics, AI, IoT, etc.).
eip_numerous-apps
All of this results in numerous heterogeneous apps (cloud & on-premise), data silos and point-to-point integrations.

Why are They a Barrier to Business Growth?

Higher Costs 

The lack of centralized integrations directly impacts your bottom line, causing higher IT maintenance costs, increased operational risk and high compliance costs.

 

Poor IT Efficiency

Without an integration platform, it is difficult to service and monitor systems centrally. IT assets are poorly reused, data integrity suffers and scaling is hard.

 

Poor Customer Experience

Siloed systems create a higher risk of IT incidents and system overload, which directly impacts experience. Personalization without unified data is also difficult.

 

Competitive Disadvantage

The lack of proper integrations makes it difficult to implement new technologies and partnerships. Going to market with new digital initiatives is slow and complex.

EIP is Ready for Open Banking. Are You?

eip_open-banking-image

Open banking is urging traditional financial service providers to fundamentally rethink their business model. 

 

It is a collaborative service model, based on open APIs, where data is shared among ecosystem players, including non-financial 3rd parties (such as retailers, real estate companies, etc.).

 

In an open banking world, plug-and-play financial products are enabled, and customers have the final word, choosing the superior experience.
