Meeting the need for speed
A large banking institution needed to reduce the time it took to meet the expectations of today’s customers, who need answers and results quickly, and demand intuitive self-service online banking experiences. To serve these customers, the institution needed to meet those speed and performance expectations or risk losing customers to more nimble one-stop-shops.
And yet, they were saddled with aging technology platforms, extensive technical debt, outdated processes and legacy resources — all of which were in dire need of transformation, and a major obstacle to forward progress. Their customers expected everything to be done quickly and smoothly, but the systems and processes in place and any efforts to modernize them were painfully slow.
Instead of innovation and customer loyalty, the organization was facing the pain of not being able to serve their customers and, ultimately, the negative impact that had on their bottom line.
“The financial services industry is traditionally built on monolithic platforms and slow-moving processes. We need to change our mindset to stay competitive, serve our customers better, retain market share, and stay relevant. Our legacy platforms, technical debt, and outdated processes, are prohibiting us from being nimble enough to provide the level of service the consumers expect.”
The solution was a careful and comprehensive transformation of their data, system, and application architecture, reorganizing their legacy systems into a nimble, service-oriented architecture, facilitating uniform exchange of information throughout. Leveraging best-practice enterprise design patterns, everything is tied together seamlessly and powers the creation of innovative purpose-built applications for myriad use cases and end users.
