Bottomline was delighted to sponsor Sibos again this year. We really enjoyed helping our clients and prospects accelerate their digital payments modernisation strategy. Whether that be for Real-Time Domestic & Cross-Border Payments, transitioning to ISO Native, improving your operational efficiency via a single hybrid SaaS platform or best practice fraud and liquidity management, we want to continue the conversation.

Building the business case for SaaS

Banks and FI have very busy roadmaps which are being steered by key industry initiatives from ISO 20022, to domestic and cross-border real-time payments, fraud management, or cash positioning. Whether implementation is being driven by industry regulation or the need to remain competitive by meeting customer expectations, the pressure to deliver speed to market and operational efficiency is causing pain and concern.

SaaS, Cloud, and the ISO 20022 standard are, in themselves, pretty ‘dry’ topics, and tech is tech. What is more interesting is how they impact the delivery and performance of innovative new payment solutions and remove the aforementioned pain.

  • What are the top priorities for Banks & FIs on their product roadmaps over the next 12 months – Real-Time, Cross-Border etc.?
  • What are the new regulatory priorities, and how are they driving domestic and international payments?
  • How are you prioritising your busy roadmaps, and what potential does ISO & SaaS have to help solve any pain points you are experiencing?
  • How can SaaS and ISO be used to generate new revenue streams?
  • How can fraud losses and issues with friction be mitigated?
  • What critical questions should you ask before you build, partner, or buy anything?

Four issues to watch as Sibos 2023 kicks off in Toronto


Following Sibos 2023 in Toronto, it’s tempting to join the event host SWIFT in gazing into the next three years of international finance. That future contains real-time changes to an organisations’ securities settlement platform, upgrades to its transaction manager solution and, of course, the potential development of CBDCs. But at its core, SWIFT is about facilitating cross-border payments, and that issue is set squarely in the present geopolitical and economic situation. Hence the theme “collaborative finance in a fragmented world.”

Sibos 2023 is in the books. Kudos to event host, Swift, for assembling a four-day agenda packed with relevant panels ranging from the next steps on ISO 20022 to the usage of AI, to longer-term issues like CBDCs. You’ve undoubtedly read more than a few event summaries, many of which I found quite insightful. However, before you write this entry off as yet another event recap, I invite you to indulge me for a few paragraphs. For me, Sibos provided a roadmap for the present and near-term future of the global payments business. I’d encapsulate it in the trend toward end-to-end visibility of global payments.

ISO 20022 – The Road to ISO Native

ISO 20022 provides the standardisation needed for interoperability between traditional and new cross-border channels and the abundant availability of rich data and related (artificial) intelligence allows us to route payments intelligently and to choose the right channel for each transaction, whether it is to drive new coverage in markets or currencies, or to optimise the execution in existing markets. The impact that the richer data will have on fraud monitoring & compliance, cash-flow management and data and analytics provides justification enough for the immediate adoption of ISO 20022 Native to be front and centre of any bank’s roadmap.

Driving real-time payments innovation 

The pace of change in payments globally has never been so dramatic and exciting with the roll-out of new regulatory mandates by the EU Commission for SEPA Inst, SIX, and the National Bank of Switzerland SIC IP phase one and two initiatives, FedNow releasing clear guidelines and Pay.UK set to announce updates for NPA.

Real-time payments are simply ‘table stakes’ for corporate customers with the adoption of real-time payments globally is ranked in the top ten as one of the critical drivers of change across businesses, with 75% of organisations also having a need to make international payments according to the Bottomline 2023 Business Payments Barometer. Put quite simply, if you don’t offer it to end customers and corporates, then they are more than likely going to rethink their relationships with your financial institution and switch. A fact that banks have recognised with 55% of banks and FIs said adopting new payment rails, such as real-time payments, was their top priority over the next 12 months in our 2023 Competitive Banking Survey for Banks & FIs. The good news is that real-time payments represent a real revenue opportunity that will only grow as banks find new ways to leverage it.
