Core Banking Software: Providing a Platform to Speed Time to Value

  1. 1. IBM Software Banking Solutions Banking IBM Banking Industry Framework – core banking transformation Modernizing and renovating core banking functionality Never before have agility and flexibility been more important for Highlights banks. They are pressured to grow top line revenues while reducing operating costs. To respond to competition from new market entrants, ● Adopt a progressive approach to reno- banks must be able to launch new products faster and support evolving vating and transforming core banking systems channels. They also must be able to handle mergers and acquisitions effectively. ● Leverage the “best-of-the-best” com- ponents from leading application providers Banks around the world have been working to renovate systems that cannot adequately support evolving business needs. The underlying ● Speed core transformation efforts with best practices, methodology, solution systems supporting core banking functions are complex.

For many banks, a simpler, more strategic core infrastructure is needed. However, large scale transformation efforts are often costly, risky and slow to generate a return on investment. Today banks need a smarter, progressive approach that enables them to transform their infrastructures over time, project by project, leveraging the assets they already have and driving value along the way. Now banks can build a technology roadmap to meet these needs with the IBM Banking Industry Framework for core banking transformation.
  2. 2. IBM Software Banking Solutions Banking Bridging the gap between business requirements and IT capabilities The IBM Banking Industry Framework provides a software platform along with prebuilt integrated core banking software extensions, solution accelerators, tooling, templates and best practices to help you significantly speed time to value in your solution implementation. It provides an approach for a pro- gressive, managed, business-driven transformation of your core banking processes. As you prioritize your changing business needs, you have a choice in how to get started. Along with a selection of appli- cations from leading independent software vendors (ISVs), the framework supports your transformation journey with core banking transformation projects in the following solution areas: Core banking application modernization.
