Trends that We Noticed on Money 20/20 

First Fintech Trend: High Demand for Integration and Orchestration Services 

The evolution of payment experience has made the customers wish to have comfortable methods of payment, wherever they are: in the bus, in the office, on the street, in the university, at the hospital, in the bar, and maybe even on the desert island. The market adapts to such demand, forcing the business to transform and satisfy the needs of the customer. Adding the new features or expanding own services means the need for integration. According to statistics, the average large financial organization has 976 different individual applications (including, cloud, finance, marketing, mobile, enterprise, and others) that are in use within the organization. Making them work smoothly altogether and unlocking value from existing data is truly an art, and only those who embrace it would gain a competitive advantage and outperform other businesses.  The statistics also prove the rise of the orchestration layer. 

11% of Visa transaction is still failing, which could be avoided by good process orchestration.

82% of businesses do not provide a connected user experience across channels.

60% of organizations report challenges to introduce new technologies because of problems with the integration of IT infrastructure.

26% of businesses consider integration as one of the top ten business challenges for digital transformation.

84% of businesses consider the integration of API to be very critical to the business strategy.

The level of orchestration and integration is the least noticeable, but at the same time it is the most interesting. Since today’s payment industry is highly modular and engages many components and suppliers, it needs a process orchestrator to implement the right solutions quickly and efficiently. Integration of APIs can significantly improve business performance and drive positive business outcomes. At the same time, the cost of failure to complete the digital transformation is very high and could reach on average up to $7,647, 629. The easiest way to describe the impact of an integration strategy on the organization is to demand what the business wouldn’t be able to do without API integrations. The well-done orchestration can help the company to achieve the set results and business outcomes faster and better.
