PSD2: Open APIs and Open Banking
Open APIs and Open Banking have grown over time from being a purely technical topic to being a strategic business accelerator that Banks cannot afford ignoring.
In the past decade, digital companies have proved very successful in opening their systems to connect with innovative firms outside their organizations, with the goal of delivering attractive services to their customers when and where the customer needs them. APIs and digitisation allow value to be created in a distributed way through an ecosystem of partners.
By the end of 2018 more openness is mandated to the Banks by the PSD2 provisions, and this will change the future of banking forever!
TAS Open Banking helps Banks to reduce the gap and react to disintermediation in payments by empowering their ability to utilise the ecosystem in co-creating value for their end-customers.

PSD2 and the payments ecosystem metamorphosis:
How banks can save the banks
With the activation of PSD2 regulation beginning in January 2018 for all EU countries, third parties will get access to financial data of banking customers under the condition that those customers gave their explicit consent. While this new legislation will open up the payment space for new Third Party Providers (TPPs) such as Payment Initiation Service Providers (PISPs) and Account Information Service Providers (AISPs), and as such create an increased competition for payments services traditionally offered by banks, PSD2 will also create new opportunities for corporates and retailers.
