Building a mobile app for a leading bank with Adam Law from NatWest Mobile DevOps is a thing!

    • Technology

In this episode of Mobile DevOps is a thing! we’re focusing on the challenges of building mobile apps in the finance and banking industry with Adam Law from NatWest Group.

Adam is the Principal Engineer for the Bankline Mobile Team, within Commercial Banking at NatWest Group, one of the UK’s (and the world’s) largest banking groups. With his team, he’s working on building Bankline Mobile, a secure, customer-facing mobile app that complements their Bankline service.

With Russell Stephens, Engineering Manager at Bitrise, we talked to Adam about the behind-the-scenes aspects of creating a top-quality banking app — from optimizing release strategies to how they keep compliant with constantly changing security requirements. We also chatted about the emergence of fintech apps and discussed what traditional banks can learn from them when it comes to mobile development and vice versa.

Key talking points:


Security: what technologies need to be implemented to make sure a finance or banking app is always secure?
Do these strict regulations affect the time of planning and /getting approval for new features and releasing them?
Release strategy: is there such a thing as the optimal frequency of releases?
Innovation and upcoming technologies: what do you think will add the most value to mobile finance and banking and why?
