Building Your Open Banking Business Case

Start your journey here

A business case is an essential element of any project to implement a new technology or build new features – Open Banking is no different. It’s often seen as even more important for Open Banking projects, because of how early in the adoption curve it is.

Clients often ask us for help with putting together their business case, and over time we’ve gathered a library of resources for this purpose. From use case examples, case studies and interviews, to consumer research, competitor movements and ROI benchmarks.

This is a summary of these resources, categorised into the relevant stages of developing an Open Banking Business case:

1. Deciding your Open Banking use case
2. Making the case
3. Planning for launch

1. Deciding Your Open Banking Use Case

We see clients have the most success when they select their Open Banking use cases based on opportunity, solving a pain point, and aligning to core business objectives strategically.

Open Banking provides a huge opportunity for you to drive real value, and uplift service to your members. The most successful use cases are the ones that meet both your business’ and your customer’s needs. Double-sided ROI!

Below are the use cases our clients speak to us about most.
