Databricks joins FinTech Australia’s partnership program as Gold Partner

Databricks, the Data and AI company, has become a gold partner in FinTech Australia’s corporate partnership program. It joins other major technology companies such as Facebook, Google, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Xero, all of whom have become members in the past 12 months.

FinTech Australia’s ecosystem partnership program assists in the fostering of relationships with the fintech industry’s key players and aims to further embed them in the growing ecosystem. 

In joining the program, Databricks aims to work more closely with digital natives on leveraging data to drive both more engaging customer experiences and greater returns on equity. 

“With Open Banking now rolling out in Australia, data has become an increasingly valuable asset for the fintech industry — one that many in the sector are still working out how to best utilise,” FinTech Australia CEO Rebecca Schot-Guppy said.

“Given this, we welcome Databricks as a gold member in our corporate partnership program, and believe the move to join the program is incredibly well-timed.” 

Bede Hackney, Regional Vice President for Australia and New Zealand at Databricks said: “Data is the lifeblood of every company and is fundamental to driving innovation in what is one of the world’s most dynamic fintech industries.  

“As the sector continues to diversify and new entrants challenge traditional financial business models, we look forward to collaborating with Australian fintechs, and enabling organisations to unlock greater value from their data.”
