Gone are the days where people used to stand in queues for any banking services they need. They are no longer interested in going to a bank for every small or big thing. As the world is changing and so is the banking sector. Now more and more banking providers are going digital with their products and offerings. Today, we will talk about how the banking sector can benefit from real-time banking with Ksolves?
Banking apps in real-time world
Banking sector has significantly changed over the past decade and is still undergoing transformation. Earlier, SMS banking and mobile web were the most popular and known ways of banking outside banks. But, the good part of technology is that it evolves, and with the development of smartphones and advancements in technology like iOS and android OS, mobile banking applications are slowly becoming a part of the real world.
This year the pandemic has forced everyone to stay at home and has accelerated the transition of banking services to digital channels like banking apps. If we are talking about Banking apps, we must understand the importance of real-time.
A truly real time banking app needs an event-driven architecture. When we talk about building EDA, Apache Kafka is the most popular solution that comes to our mind. But, the question is who can provide you the best Kafka services and deliver the best real-time banking apps? If you are also stuck with the same questions, You have come to the right place.
But, before we tell you how we do it, first understand why Kafka is the ideal choice for banking apps.
Apache Kafka: The best choice to deliver banking apps
