Ant Financial Teams up with Hoperun to Launch Distributed Core Banking Platform
Ant Financial Services Group in collaboration with Hoperun Information Technology, a Jiangsu-based firm launches its Distributed Core Banking Platform (DCBP), an advanced and the next-generation banking product that can help financial institutions to revolutionize their models from transaction-oriented to customer-oriented. The platform seeks to support the financial entities to tackle digital challenges, including distributed development, accounting liquidation, and financial product management.
DCBP is the first co-developed product in Ant Financial’s technology portfolio as it has completed the pilot stage after being a core part of the computing systems of several renowned banking partners. This solution is built on the bPass (Business platform as a Service) that enables financial institutions to take advantage of Ant Financial’s offerings in asset management, product management, capital verification, and full-ink pressure test. Ant Financial sought to combine these capabilities with its partner Hoperun’s experience in the finance sector to develop the DCBP solution.
Several banks have claimed that they have significantly accelerated their digital transformation process with the use of DCBP solution. Liu Weiguang, vice president of Ant Financial, said: “We have enjoyed working with Hoperun to develop this product which marks a milestone for Ant Financial technology. This is just the first of many collaborations that we plan to form with other talented partners that will enable us to provide better technology solutions to the challenges faced by financial institutions.”
