Today, financial institutions are storing unprecedented volumes of data. Legacy data architecture at most institutions is unable to support real-time analytics or allow business units to realize the full potential of the data they store.
Opensee addresses the data stack challenge facing financial institutions through a single, scalable platform able to absorb the exponential growth in collected data and make 100% of the data accessible in real-time, to the most granular level and with no limit on the size of the data set.
The platform allows business users to manipulate data for simple or complex calculations with embedded analytics for a wide range of use cases, ranging from risk management and regulatory reporting to trading decisions and ESG analysis. It removes the need for additional computing tools and significantly reduces operational risk. Low code analytics enable Front Office, Risk and Finance managers to harness data for more informed decision-making, to identify opportunities to gain a competitive advantage or to respond better to client needs.
Opensee is used by many Corporates such as Société Générale, Kepler Chevreux and Crédit Agricole.

Fintecture’s has developped a next-gen payment infrastructure enables merchants to bypass card ceilings, technical declines and fees, (i) boosting sales while (ii) reducing cost and fraud.
Leveraging a technological and regulatory transformation of the banking industry (eg: PSD2), Fintecture has built from first principles a new payment infrastructure, addressing failures and shortcomings of legacy payment processes :
- Restricting sales through low card ceilings and technical declines: ~20% of on-line card payments are declined.
- Eroding margins through chargebacks, fraud, and punitive fees: merchants lose over $100 billion to payment providers annually.
Using APIs to integrate with banks, Fintecture has built the missing direct link between merchants and their customers, to process payments in a simpler, safer, and cost-efficient manner: account-to-account.
Traditionally considered as a cost center and a cause of friction, payment should be used by merchants as leverage to accelerate their growth.
Finbricks is a payment solution provider which has developed a technological platform aggregating PSD2 products (accounts & payments) and providing e-shops with simplified access to these resources. Finbricks allows its clients to implement value added services such as payment initiation and account information services into their customer journey.
