The BIAN certifications mean that it’s another milestone to my professional development, to be recognized in terms of having some expertise in the BIAN framework. It’s also a portable skill that I can carry with me and it’s applicable to any financial industry. Members but also vendors that are partnering with the financial industry. I decided to go for the certification because it is a standard and it is portable.

What is BIAN training?

BIAN training is a 2-day course that teaches you how to use the BIAN banking architecture standard, which is a new way of modelling banking capabilities, APIs, and microservices. BIAN stands for Banking Industry Architecture Network, and it is a global network of banks, software vendors, and service providers that collaborate to create a common framework for banking interoperability.

By taking BIAN training, you will learn how to apply the BIAN standard to your own banking architecture projects, and how to benefit from its advantages, such as:

  • Enhancing innovation and agility by leveraging the latest technologies and trends in banking

By passing the BIAN Foundation Exam at the end of the course, you will also earn the BIAN Foundation certification, which proves that you have mastered the BIAN standard and its concepts.
