The Payment Services Directive 2 is being hailed as the long-needed infusion of freedom and debilitation of banking monopoly. And, it truly is great. The basic idea is to mandate banks into opening up APIs to allow ANY interested, authenticated party to fetch account information and conduct transactions on behalf of the customers. The problem that many are speaking of is that the banks may lose out to more competition.
A few months ago, I had the privilege to look at and analyze a trading application, for purposes of feature listing and estimation. Now, it is not uncommon for financial applications to sport all those buttons, sliders and boxes that give the user a feature-rich end product. I also distinctly remember one of the executives iterating proudly about the host of features that their platform was able to provide. Only problem: they were bleeding customers. Some startup was able to dismount their platform from the top user-base position and they were doing it with seeming effortlessness.
The title itself is a bit pretentious. As if being agile today is some sort of dilution, and we need to aim for true agility by virtue of its slightly better sounding name (my opinion of course). The concept of agility stems from the need to have teams that are better poised to tackle changing requirements. It also propounds of making the customer’s life better by delivering incrementally, with more transparency than the well maligned big bang of the waterfall model.
