Fintechs today are becoming an integral part of the banking value change and as a result of the Digitization in the banking industry which is making its way slowly and steadily. Today approximately 70% of the IT budget of banks is spent on the traditional IT services such as maintaining core legacy systems with the remaining 30% spent on the means of digital transformation like data analytics & cloud technologies. Banks are exploring new angles in the industry; Mobile Payments, Open APIs, Blockchain, P2P Lending, Crowdfunding, Big Data, Wealth Management & AI (artificial intelligence).

Having said that, there are also challenges that must be addressed. For example, banking and Financial Services experts admitted that managing the security risk of AI systems is of most importance. Other issues like the challenge of developing AI tools that were able to improve decision-making were also reported as potential buffers to the technology’s development.
