Sweden’s Ikano Bank has chosen Tata Consultancy Services’ (TCS) software-as-a-service global banking platform to streamline its fragmented core banking operations and accelerate the launch of new financial services.

What Happened? The partnership will enable Ikano Bank to consolidate its European accounts, deposits, and retail lending business, starting with those in in Sweden, to ensure regulatory compliance, standardised processes and faster product innovation. The bank also said the platform would help it enter new markets.
