Back-end modernisation for open banking

For decades, mainframes have been the cornerstones of IT infrastructure in many businesses, with banks at the forefront. However, the demand for increased flexibility to cope with ever-changing business processes and the need to reduce recurrent costs are forcing companies to move towards open platforms.

The modernisation of the back-end is a strategic move that is part and parcel of the digital transformation banks must undergo to adapt to the market, become more agile and accelerate innovation.
