The PSD2 regulations have set the stage for an open banking and payments ecosystem. Capgemini’s PSD2 Open Banking Solution is designed to dramatically lower the cost of compliance by accelerating strategy definition, readiness assessment, and implementation capabilities including new forms of collaboration with a whole ecosystem of business partners.
