Core Banking Systems Market Now Well-Established, Cloud Infrastucture to Drive Innovation – Report

Juniper Research has recently shared the top 3 uses of next-gen tech in Core Banking.

The Juniper Research team notes in a report that the core banking systems market “is well established; however, technological innovation, such as cloud infrastructure, is driving innovation in this sector.”

Juniper Research defines core banking systems as: ‘Software that banks and financial institutions use to manage their fundamental processes, such as customer accounts, transactions and risk management.’

Core banking systems can often “be referred to as ‘Engines’ or ‘Ledgers’, however these systems all provide integration, orchestration and authorisation between a bank’s ecosystem by connecting mobile applications, web channels, contact centres and employee dashboards.”

Core banking systems are crucial infrastructure to banks: they can be thought of “as the central nervous system, as they provide the most essential functions that allow banks to provide seamless customer experience, and maintain compliance with regulations.”

The Jumiper Research team added that core banking systems are typically “deployed either on-premises or using a cloud-based infrastructure.”

On-premises systems are typically installed and maintained “on the bank’s own servers, while cloud-based systems are hosted by a third-party provider.”

As explained in the Juniper Research report, a traditional core banking system’s fundamental role is to store and process data “for each customer, and this varies on its size and the services that it offers, and the regulatory requirements it must comply with.”

It is essential for core banking systems to run seamlessly.

With Juniper Research forecasting “the total number of digital banking users to reach over 4 billion in 2024, core banking systems need to offer scalability and fast deployment.”

Furthermore, as the global number of digital banking users continues “to gradually increase, traditional core banking systems must be able to scale and remain flexible with the uptake of new customers and the integration of technological services as they evolve.”

Typically, core banking systems store and processes a variety of information about its customers, including but not limited to:

a) Personal Information

This includes basic details such “as name, address, date of birth, contact information, and identification documents, such as passports and driver’s licenses.”

b) Account Information

This comprises of details relating to customers’ accounts, “such as account numbers, types of accounts (eg savings, checking), account balances, transaction history, and account preferences.”

Underpinned by a robust scoring methodology, the new Competitor Leaderboard ranked the top 18 core banking systems vendors, using criteria “such as geographical reach, the strength of its strategic partnerships, and future business prospects.”

The top 5 vendors for 2024:

  • Temenos
  • FIS
  • Mambu
  • Finastra
  • Tata Consultancy Services

Leading players scored exceptionally at “offering the richest banking capabilities, with strong merit given to those leveraging cloud-based solutions tailored to helping banking segments from retail, corporate and wealth management scale their operations.”

However, the report cautioned that, “to stay competitive, vendors must develop future-proof solutions that allow banks to focus on rapid scaling in line with increases in the demand for 24/7 banking.”

API-integration and Open Banking support are vital to vendors’ longevity.

API-enabled services can readily integrate with existing core banking systems, “modernizing banks’ infrastructure without needing to replace existing systems.”

This drives competition, as banks can “integrate new services to compete with challenger banks.”
