From API to developer portal
Open Banking is a top priority of our work in the Sparkassen Innovation Hub. In doing so, we’re following the vision of expanding the AHOI API platform into a developer portal for the Sparkassen-Finanzgruppe. This would also make it a port of call for fintechs and other third parties.
The welcome page for the recently launched XS2A (Access to Accounts) Sandbox by Finanz Informatik marks the first step towards this developer portal. The present aim is to consolidate contact with the TPPs (third-party providers) in one place. With a BaFin authorization as an account information service (AIS) or payment initiation service (PIS), the S-Hub can support fintechs and other TPPs in meeting regulatory requirements. In this way, it can become the enabler of many other use cases for the Sparkassen-Finanzgruppe.
