The Indian BFSI sector continues to drive innovation and set the digital agenda for the rest of the sectors.
Given the increased digitization, IT spends for BFSI industry firms are set to increase significantly. Gartner predicts the total spending on IT for the sector will be around $11 billion in 2020, an increase of 9.1% from 2019.
This is the age of apps, algorithms and AI - and almost every BFSI industry firm using a combination of emerging technologies to improve its own competitiveness.
It is common for firms in this sector to use open APIs to encourage startups and other fintech firms to build apps, on top of their own platforms. Using algorithms, loans are delivered in minutes, and apps fulfill most needs.
