BIAN: Powering purpose-driven, future-ready banks

In the race to stay ahead, provide best-in-class customer service, and meet ever increasing market demands, banks have bolted on digital capabilities in an ad hoc manner introducing considerable complexity into the underlying IT architecture. Today, most traditional banks operate with a complex, unmanageable IT architecture with duplicate systems and data impeding speed-to-market for new products and services. Increasingly inflexible legacy systems have resulted in business silos and monolithic applications that hinder agility and adversely impact the pace of key transformation initiatives.
