Connectors are simple, data point connections to external Saas providers, that are used to enrich internal customer data to help in onboarding and risk decision scenarios. API Connectors gather data from a collection of REST APIs with the purpose of merging them into a cloud-based data storage system. This process gives the possibility of filtering and transforming data into a proper format or structure for the purposes of querying and analysis.
FintechOS offers the possibility of accessing different databases with the purpose of moving around specific data using API connectors. They can be used but are not limited to banking or insurance business scenarios, such as customer identity verification in a loan origination operation, automatically fill-in customer data, and so on. In addition, connectors can have a significant role in a business’s risk management process by providing easy access to databases where information regarding financial risks is stored.
