Would you like to be able to aggregate your data across your bank accounts? Enable your tax accountant to see your financial information? Enable the App of your choice to make a payment on your behalf? Or perhaps you would like to enable your residents or customers to perform these tasks in a low cost, secure and interoperable way? There is a global movement towards “Open Banking/Open Data” the paradigm shift where a user authorizes the release of their data from one entity (a data holder like a bank) to an entity where they would like it to go (a relying party like a FinTech). This is also known as “user-consent based data sharing.” Although this movement started with banking use cases and gaining access to data held by banks, it is now expanding to a range of other verticals including brokerage and mutual fund services, insurance, telecommunications, utilities, health and more.
