How machine learning can help banks

Thanks to new machine learning techniques, it is possible to find groups of people related to each other based on attributes invisible to a human, such as the dates of the month when they go out to eat, the ratio of their spending between transportation and their salary, and preferred experiences and industries, means that spending and behavior patterns can be much more accurate when it comes to grouping users, he detailed.

How can this help banks customers such as the SMEs segment? For a small business, a projection of income and expenses for the next few months is very important. If it had an income projection model that really hits the mark, it will put much more trust in its bank and the services it offers to the business.

The benefits of deploying in SaaS model

Strands’ Director of Technology also talked about the benefits of the cloud. “Leaving behind the problems and lag found within old applications and bank’s data centers’ processes, internally Strands innovated something more efficient: moved the development environments to the cloud and started playing with tools like Docker”, he detailed. He also added that “70% of the banks we work with, operate or want to operate the service from the cloud”. In an organization as complex as banking, being able to delegate certain services to third parties has substantial cost savings.

Pablo also explained that “what we are immersed in now is a move to a more services focused model. We already see it in thousands of companies, SaaS is the order of the day”, he concluded.

Strands’ software has been implemented in more than 700 financial institutions in 30 countries, as one of the world’s largest providers of innovative banking solutions.
