How it works
NDGIT's API management platform is a middleware that connects the bank's core banking system - often legacy systems - with innovative fintech services via APIs. These new services either simplify the bank's internal processes, which leads to greater efficiency, or deliver new value propositions through value-added services for the bank's customers.

What problem does the company solve
Banks have a hard time being as innovative as FinTechs due to the mentioned legacy systems and organizational structures that have outgrown efficiency. NDGIT's API management platform allows banks to become PSD2 compliant in just 60 working days by exposing their systems via APIs. For those who think one step further, the platform enables building ecosystems for banking-as-a-service and customer-centric banking app stores.

Industries/target markets
Banks and insurance companies are classic customers, fintechs and insurtechs mostly partners; geographically, the NDGIT network sits all over Europe
