TCS launches BaNCS ADK to enable Banks to build their own Apps

Global software major Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) on Thursday launched "BaNCS App Development Kit" (ADK) that will enable banks to fast design and build their own apps and deploy it across devices and desktops seamlessly.

"BaNCS ADK" will help banks to design and deploy both enterprise and consumer apps in a hybrid architecture, adopting modern principles of responsive web design. “We envision apps to supplant browser-based interfaces, not just on mobile phones, tablets, kiosks, IoT-connected devices but also on desktop PCs in a single code base. The vision for 'BaNCS ADK' is to transfer flexibility and speed of development to the Bank, leveraging a library of business aware financial widgets and components," said Sathish Vallat, Head of TCS BaNCS Digital, in a statement.

“Enabling the business, people like product managers and business analysts, to be the prime designer, rather than tossing the projects over the wall to design firms, platform providers and IT will be a quicker path to value. Better efficiency, effectiveness and speed are the results when the business can configure solutions on its own,” said Dan Latimore, Senior Vice President of Celent’s Banking practice, a consulting firm focused on the application of information technology.

While "BaNCS ADK" comes with its own array of widgets, controls and components, banks can add their existing or new widgets at will and has the opportunity to open it to their ecosystem.
