The Operations teams of the financial industry are looking back on a turbulent year, dominated by topics of resilience, remote working and the handling of huge transaction volumes. For us as a business-process-as-a-service (BPaaS) provider, as well as for the back offices of our on-prem and software-as-a-service (SaaS) clients, it is time to refocus on the future again - a future full of new technologies and digital transformation.
To keep their competitive edge, banks and wealth managers require efficient ways to operate and increasingly turn to SaaS or BPaaS providers offering cloud-based solutions to implement rapid business model shifts. Many are moving to a platform model of operation, and are adopting cloud-based services to achieve their aims.
Business Process as a Service (BPaaS) may be thought of as a combination of the benefits provided by Software as a Service (SaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and traditional Business Process Outsourcing (BPO). It is essentially a process-led implementation and offers core banking activities by a service partner.
