Observability for Account Aggregator Eco-system: Enhancing Financial Eco-system


Introduction: Unlocking Seamless Financial Data Sharing

Account Aggregators (AA) have emerged as a key innovation, enabling secure and consent-based data sharing across financial institutions. As a network that bridges banks, financial institutions, and customers, it promises enhanced financial inclusion and innovation. However, realizing this promise hinges on the ecosystem’s ability to maintain flawless operation, security, and user trust. Observability plays a critical role in achieving these objectives by providing deep insights into system performance and user interactions.

Challenges in Account Aggregator Ecosystem

Monitoring account aggregators involves tracking various metrics such as data throughput, latency,

error rates, and system health across multiple integration points and API interactions. Key challenges include:

● Managing API complexity

● Ensuring scalability

● Maintaining security and compliance

● Handling error notifications

● Optimizing user consent flows

VuNet's Approach to Observability in Account Aggregators

Business-centric observability offers a holistic approach to monitoring and optimizing account aggregator ecosystems by focusing on business outcomes and user interactions. Key aspects of VuNet’s approach include:


API Interaction Monitoring
