20th January 2022

Press & Media

With huge increases in cyber-crime, digital payments and home working over the past few years, people and companies are starting to sit up and pay attention to their own data and privacy. Techround have collated expert industry predictions for this very topic, including from payments expert and Kani CEO, Aaron Holmes.


Holmes started by saying “Raw data is ugly, it’s complicated and it’s scattered across many file sources, languages and formats. What’s more, big data is getting bigger and more complicated every day.”

“Trying to make sense of all this data can seem like a daunting task, especially for small fintechs or start-ups which lack the resources of their bigger competitors. According to Market Data Forecast, the global fintech market is expected to reach a value of around $324 billion by 2026, and competition will only get tougher over the next few years.”

“Without accurate and transparent data reporting and reconciliation, companies can face fines due to non-compliance with regulations and inaccurate audits, which could threaten the survival of the business.”

“In the fintech space, third-party data comes from multiple processor relationships, card scheme relationships and bank account relationships, often spanning different countries. New services like open banking also add new complexities to data layers, forging infrastructure connections between different entities, portals and APIs. While these services allow transactions to move much faster, every new touchpoint is a new data source that needs to be parsed, analysed and generated into accessible outputs.” Read the article here
