On the 12th of July ’23, Fiorano, a prominent leader in global hybrid multi-cloud applications, held an in-person event in Lagos, in collaboration with partner Inlaks. The event, titled ‘Open Banking for Growth in Nigeria,’ was organized in response to the Open Banking mandate issued by the country’s central bank earlier this year. Open banking has been rapidly gaining adoption in various parts of the world, and Nigeria is among the latest countries on the African continent to embrace this model. Banks from across the country, along with representatives from the Central Bank of Nigeria, convened at the Eko Hotel in the capital city of Lagos for the event.

“Open Banking is experiencing rapid expansion globally, and we are thrilled to be a part of this event alongside our partner Inlaks Nigeria, and the Central Bank of Nigeria. We covered in-depth areas including the compliance aspects of Open Banking, with a particular focus on essential security elements like OpenID / FAPI, strategic approaches banks can adopt, and critical topics of how regional banks should approach compliance and effectively leverage APIs for monetization” – Biju Suresh Babu, the Managing Director of Banking and Financial Services at Fiorano.

To this Olufemi Muraino, Executive Director, Inlaks, added, ‘‘Open Banking provides an efficient platform to transform banking and improve consumer experience and expectations. At Inlaks, we are dedicated to delivering result-oriented products through digitization, and we take pride in collaborating with strategic partners and stakeholders to maximize the effectiveness of this approach. Our unwavering commitment lies in empowering banks and financial institutions on innovative journeys that provide unparalleled value to customers. Looking forward, we remain steadfast in our resolve to be a trusted partner, dedicated to empowering institutions and contributing to the advancement of Africa’s financial industry.”

During the event, Chika Ugwueze, Assistant Director of the Payments System Management Department at the Central Bank of Nigeria delivered an enlightening presentation on the potential of Open Banking and its transformative impact on banks, financial institutions, and customers.
