Client Success Story – Fincare Small Finance Bank When India’s Disha Microfin Payment Solutions (now known as Fincare Small Finance Bank) was selected as India’s newest small finance bank in 2016, it knew it needed a proven banking and payments technology partner to bring its vision of creating a commercially viable, socially relevant financing option for lower- income Indian citizens to life. In September 2016, Fincare selected FIS to serve as its complete technology partner and provide a fully integrated banking and payments platform through a totally outsourced delivery model, which encompassed core banking, channels and the entire suite of payments services, including switching, debit card, management services and ATM management.
The multiyear agreement supported Fincare’s goal of making measurable economic and social impacts on the lives of lower-income households to raise the economic status of families across India, allowing it to operate efficiently and focus on customers rather than operations and technology.

Criteria Dedicated Shared
Architecture planning is less effective as services are added in layers. This involves creation of individual service-based infrastructure, leading to increased deployment time and higher costs.
Hub and spoke deployment approach: Hub – Common pool of shared services across service delivery/infrastructure management and security management.
Spoke – Common versions of core application stack creating ability for rapid deployment with acceptance in production.
Technology Governance
Service Delivery – Additional oversight required for team management.
Change Management – Complex
Change management setup required for project delivery and production support.
Shared services layer comprising infrastructure/ network/ application and help desk management allows better utilization of processes/resources.
The shared services layer can be backed by single points of contact for each customer who owns the engagement.
Business Flexibility
Limited flexibility for service/product extensions spanning across channels and customer service aspects.
Higher flexibility. While the core is sealed off, any product extension can be customized and packaged according to business needs. Critical applications will be hosted separately for each institution, and data will be segregated and maintained separately.
Time to Market
Longer time to market due to siloed implementation.
Shorter time to market given that any product or service extensions follow an agile and repeatable set of process and product factory capabilities.
Shared setup can reduce costs and time by 35 to 40 percent compared to dedicated infrastructure.
