UnionBank, a technology-savvy bank based in the Philippines, announced this week that it will use the IBM Bluemix platform to develop new customer-facing apps.
The bank is looking to provide customers with a richer menu of services by embracing APIs, and it will use IBM API Connect to make that happen. The IBM Cloud-based service will help UnionBank quickly create, manage, secure and run APIs that the bank used internally and scale them for external use.
The collaboration with IBM Cloud is just the latest e-banking innovation for UnionBank. Its EON tool, an internet-based deposit account with no minimum balance, was an industry first.
