Electronic Banking Forum for banks and companies

Over 120 experts from banks, corporates and consultancies took part in the event in Cologne to learn more about how corporate banking is changing. The presentations and workshops focussed on topics such as efficiency and transparency as well as new "Banking as a Service" initiatives and how trend-setting e-BAM projects are being realized in practice.

For example, a representative of the Deutsche Bundesbank told participants about the role that regulation plays in the digitalisation of corporate banking, particularly with SEPA Instant Payments. The service provider SWIFT presented innovative options for corporates and banks resulting from the migration to the ISO standard as well as new options for accessing the SWIFT network.

Practice reports - The important topics in transaction banking

Deutsche Bank AG provided information on the increasing importance of banking-as-a-service and how the new API-based banking services are fundamentally changing the established corporate banking ecosystem. In its presentation, DZ BANK AG described how the key to successfully introducing Request-to-Pay is to ensure a robust internal support for the new message-based payment process. At the same time, DZ BANK AG explained how the banking group is building out its eBAM offering. Alongside these insights from the banking sector, Omikron outlined its MultiCash API strategy for corporate and banking solutions and provided an outlook on how to meet the current challenges in transaction banking, such as ISO-XML, Instant Payments, EBICS and eBAM.

In an update on its recent activities, RWE AG provided the perspective of a multinational on how to pilot digital e-BAM account opening via EBICS, including sanctions screening checks. In a further presentation, Omikron explained the wide range of options for the digitalising "administrative banking", using MultiCash solutions for e-BAM, sanctions screening, KYC and bank fee management.

More than 120 experts from banks, companies and consultancies attended the Strategy Forum Transaction Banking 2024 to find out about digitalization in treasury and the transformation in corporate banking.
