This momentum has helped BIAN (The Banking Industry Architecture Network) further its commitment to forging a new era of banking.

In a time of ongoing change, BIAN’s growing role continues to be pivotal in shaping the future of banking services, with members benefitting from the organisation’s unique approach to collaboration and solving common industry obstacles.

This has attracted experts from the following industry players: Commonwealth Bank, CaixaBank, TSB Bank, NedBank, Navy Federal Credit Union, Vietnam International Bank, De Volksbank, Mavidev, Bain & Company, SID Global Solutions, Zoot, Veripark, Solace, Kyndryl and Samlink, Warba Bank, 2innovate, Grand Central by Backbase and Electronic Payment Group of the West African Economic and Monetary Union.

“We have long admired the impact BIAN has had on the industry,” comments Hugo Sacchi, CEO of 2innovate.

“Its ability to define best practices aimed at driving digital transformation and enhancing operational efficiency across the financial services landscape furthers our commitment to integrating the interoperability and expansion principles of Frame Banking clients. We look forward to building the next generation of payments with BIAN and its members.”

Over the last 12 months, BIAN developed and published the third iteration of its ‘Coreless Banking’ initiative, an API-based services architecture designed to resolve the challenges banks face with interoperability.

In 2024, BIAN is focused on working with its members to determine how AI can be used to not only transform operations but also improve how BIAN standards are implemented across each organization.

“The overall success of BIAN is down to the expertise and dedication of our members,” says Hans Tesselaar, Executive Director, BIAN.

“As we look to solve the obstacles that commonly hold us back, the diverse experience of our new members will have a significant impact on our progress. I’m extremely proud to see BIAN grow, and can’t wait to what we achieve over the next year.”
