A new microsite "Finance Business Next" for tomorrow's financial sector


Munich, 3 March 2016 – afb Application Services AG (afb), a leading European full-service provider for the optimisation of financing business of banks and leasing companies, announces the launch of the microsite "Finance Business Next". Companies in the finance sector will find information on current challenges, trends and possible solution scenarios regarding digitisation.

According to a recent study undertaken by the Lünendonk Management Consultancy in collaboration with Lufthansa Industry Solutions, an IT consultancy and system integration company, and the technical University of Darmstadt, German companies should significantly increase the speed at which they press ahead with digital transformation. afb uses the new microsite "Finance Business Next" to inform players in the finance sector (financial services providers, manufacturers, dealers and service providers) about current challenges, trends and possible solution scenarios concerning digital transformation. Selected guest authors from the worlds of science and business, along with afb staff provide regular reports on current issues. The portal covers the subjects of security, mobility, big data and business process outsourcing as well as Silicon Valley banking in which FinTechs play a key role. Information is also provided on the evolution of product-centred manufacturers into providers of complex services and therefore also the transformation of product brands into service brands.

"The finance sector is undergoing a period of change. Innovative disruptors and enablers are entering the market as FinTechs, proven business models are being questioned and established players must reinvent themselves. In the course of this transformation, the optimal interplay of innovative partners, systems and services are creating seminal opportunities", emphasises afb's Enrico Moritz, Manager Business Development and Consulting at afb, who goes on to add, "The digital transformation is significantly influencing the strategies, structures and processes of all sectors and is compelling companies to re-examine existing business models. Our new microsite provides valuable stimuli and insight based on many years' experience in the finance sector. "
