How to accelerate digital transformation in the banking industry
Written by: Larry Heathcote, Manager – IBM Application Delivery, IBM Cloud | February 6, 2017
Like many other businesses, banks are increasingly adopting digital transformation. Why? They want to provide compelling customer engagement, retain all their customers and fend off defections to competitors. Now more than ever, it’s important that banks provide a differentiated, tailored experience that draws customers in, both online and in-person.
Banks are finding ways to deliver innovation in the customer experience, and they need a way to deliver that experience quickly. I’d say the global banking community sees speed of innovation as a top priority, while continuing to maintain strong governance, controls and risk mitigation.
AGYS helps banks worldwide navigate and accelerate their digital transformation. The company offers packaged and tailored digital applications that can help banks quickly launch new products, processes and services. New solutions can be deployed on a private cloud or as cloud-based software as a service (SaaS) applications that can easily fit into any existing environment.
AGYS’s applications and services are built on top of an IBM private cloud foundation, including IBM Business Process Manager (IBM BPM), IBM Integration Bus (IIB) and IBM PureApplication. The company uses this foundation to help banks quickly set up and deploy new applications across their private or hybrid cloud landscape. Let me get specific:
- IBM BPM helps automate and execute processes that involve a lot of human intervention and complex dependencies between stage activities. It easily integrates into banking IT systems.
- IIB provides connectivity and universal data transformation to help simplify connectivity between new and existing applications, web services and data assets.
- IBM PureApplication System (renamed IBM Bluemix Local System) and PureApplication Service provide a high performing and scalable private cloud application platform across a hybrid landscape.
