Consulting and IT services company NTT Data announced the launch of a new digital banking platform today. The new offering, Platea Banking, helps banks with digital transformation while maintaining their legacy technology.
Platea Banking helps retail banks take a platform-based approach to facilitate a customer-centric focus on the banking experience. The new platform offers banks access to NTT Data’s partner ecosystem and modules, including customer onboarding, lending, planning and financial management, card issuing and processing, payments, and others.
The open banking approach allows banks to select the features they need and move quickly through a platform-based approach that doesn’t tie them down to a single vendor.
“Technology plays a central role in helping banks innovate and deliver next-generation banking services to their customers,” said Global Head of NTT DATA’s Open Banking Practice Manuel Romero. “With consumers demanding digital banking experiences, it is imperative that banks act accordingly to respond [to] their needs. Platea Banking has been built to empower banks, providing them with a path to incorporate cloud-native technology to expand their business, as well as the ability to overcome obstacles such as scalability issues, legacy IT and compliance.”
Founded in 1988 and headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, NTT Data offers a range of IT services and solutions, including consulting, systems integration, and IT outsourcing, for multiple sectors. A Finovate alum, the company most recently demoed at FinovateFall 2019. Yo Honma is CEO.
