ING: A 360 - Degree Buy to Build Technology Approach
Reimagining Risk, Data, Workflow with a Low-Code/No-Code Platform
In 2018 ING embarked on a multiyear program to reimagine application development and drive change within an agile, at-scale transformation framework. This framework set the path for further digitalization across wholesale and investment banks and promote the growth of platforms on which to conduct business.

The approach used modern technology including cloud and microservices and relied on fintech partnerships.
