Data portals: A driver for transformation in banking & insurance

Your need

Data is at the heart of the operations and business models of banks and insurance companies. It acts as a valuable resource for making better decisions, increasing efficiency, and adapting to a changing economic and societal landscape while meeting emerging consumer needs. Democratizing access to data for employees, business partners, and customers through a data portal allows financial services companies to improve operational efficiency, increase collaboration, boost efficiency, and offer innovative products and services, all while complying with regulations.

Groupe BPCE drives innovation

The second-largest banking group in France, Groupe BPCE began to open its data in 2017, aiming to improve the customer experience, create a data culture and stay ahead of regulations.

Our solution

  • Provides a range of data visualization options, enabling data to be presented via tables, graphs, and interactive maps as well as shared through APIs and widgets.
  • Enables real-time sharing and reduces administration through automatic updates.
  • Delivers an easy-to-use, intuitive management interface, reducing administration and supporting data governance.

The benefits

  • Increases innovation and collaboration with existing and new partners, building an ecosystem that benefits from open data sharing
  • Improves internal efficiency and creates new use cases for data, driving digitalization and maximizing value from data

In the years to come, we will all have a role to play in making data widely available and improving people's lives, in all areas. We cannot live in a world in which data is omnipresent without training, explaining, or ensuring that end consumers and company employees understand the challenges of data. People had their doubts about opening up data in the banking sector. But we did it, and now we have the perspective to see that our approach is working very well.
