Automation in banking has been a key driver of operational efficiency, accuracy, and improved customer experience. It involves using technology to perform tasks that would otherwise require human intervention, often repetitive and routine tasks. Automation can range from simple rule-based scripts to more complex AI-driven decision-making systems
Low-code platforms have emerged as powerful tools in this context. They allow developers and even non-technical staff to create applications through visual interfaces, instead of writing extensive code. In banking, low-code platforms can be used to build customer-facing applications, internal tools, and to automate complex workflows. These platforms speed up development time, reduce the need for specialized coding skills, and enable rapid iteration and adaptation of applications.
For example, a bank might use a low-code platform to create a mobile app for loan applications. The platform could provide pre-built modules for data input, validation, user management, and integration with the bank's core systems. This allows the bank to deliver new services quickly and to adapt them as market conditions or customer needs change
Robotic Process Automation (RPA), or bots, are another key technology for automation in banking. RPA involves programming software robots to carry out repetitive tasks that are rule-based and don't require complex decision making. These tasks might include data entry, transaction processing, or generating standard reports.
In banking, RPA bots can be used to automate tasks in areas such as customer service, compliance, or back-office operations. For example, an RPA bot might be programmed to extract information from customer emails and update the customer's account information in the bank's systems. This can speed up response times, improve data accuracy, and free up staff for more complex and high-value tasks.
However, both low-code platforms and RPA also present challenges. These technologies need to be carefully managed to ensure they are secure, compliant with regulations, and that they don't create new operational risks. For this reason, banks often need to invest in skills, systems, and governance processes to effectively use these technologies.
