Reflecting on BIAN in 2023

2023 was a year to remember for BIAN.

For me, some of our proudest moments include the launch of Coreless Banking 3.0 at Sibos; continuing to welcome new members into our growing community and rounding off the year with the inaugural BIAN Banking Summit! As we look forward to another year of supporting banking transformation, I had the pleasure of talking to some of our valued Board Members about how their organizations are benefitting for BIAN, and why they are part of our growing community.

BIAN Training

BIAN Certification

Being certified in The BIAN Foundation level acknowledges that a certified professional has mastered the BIAN Standard and is aware that financial institutions can be modelled in a standard way, which enables maximum interoperability and re-use and minimum IT integration cost. A BIAN Foundation certified person is able to recognize and apply this to other financial services providers.

Foundations of banking excellence

A confluence of macroeconomic stressors paired with new competition from fintechs and nontraditional players presents an environment more challenging than ever for banks. The need to embrace continuous reinvention, augment business profitability, and reduce costs requires a substantial transformation of operations.



The main advantage of participating in BIAN is the ability to gain increased knowledge from work in progress on service standards.
