Polish BGŻ BNP Paribas goes digital with Backbase
The Backbase Omni-Channel Banking Platform introduces a new digital platform and aims to encourage the use of agile project management in the bank
BGŻ BNP Paribas’ “Fast Forward” strategy has focused on digitisation as it looks to be more agile and more able to quickly respond to market changes.
Having grown from a series of mergers, the bank had previously inherited various legacy systems – thus requiring to up its game in terms of flexibility and agility.
“Cooperation with Backbase is a natural consequence of the requirements of our transformation program. Our new strategy is based on five core pillars: simplicity, digitisation, quality, growth and enthusiasm,” says Piotr Marciniak, head of digital and mobile of Bank BGŻ BNP Paribas.
Initially, internet banking will be moved over to the new platform, but plans are to move to a single architecture, and implement Backbase mobile as part of this.
BGŻ BNP Paribas Bank is also changing the way it develops and runs projects, with a heavy emphasis on fintechs, digital, and continuous integration continuous development (CICD).
“BGŻ BNP Paribas Bank emphasises cooperation with sought-after fintechs. We constantly seek out the best, most innovative projects to support our operations, and are glad to implement some of their ideas in our bank,” adds Marciniak.
