Axxiome Joins Banking Industry Architecture Network (BIAN)

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 01/21/13 -- Axxiome, a leading banking solutions provider, has joined the Banking Industry Architecture Network (BIAN). Axxiome joins other global names such as ABN AMRO, Credit Suisse, Microsoft and Deutsche Bank amongst others, who it will work with to create common banking platforms which benefit consumers while also making banks significantly more efficient.

BIAN drives common industry agreements on how banking solutions will integrate with one another. It promotes open standards and helps make banks operate more effectively. Working together through BIAN, member companies can reduce integration costs, align IT with their business objectives and respond more quickly to customer needs. BIAN solutions will also reduce costs as common platforms enable banks to buy technical solutions from different providers knowing they will work with the core banking system, which isn't the case when each bank has their own bespoke platforms and systems.

Axxiome is participating in BIAN to help shape the direction of common banking solutions. Axxiome has experience across the globe of advising on and implementing new banking systems and is a rapidly growing banking transformation solution provider, so it will help the BIAN community by bringing its international banking experience based on many SAP Banking implementations.

Kris Hansen, Vice President Architecture and Management Consulting at Axxiome North America, says, "There is a move amongst banks across the globe to move to services oriented software (SOA) and combine this with industry-agreed IT standards. Axxiome has extensive field knowledge on banking transformations that we can feed into BIAN. We have developed models and methods, aligned with BIAN, to help the banks we work with to exceed global standards. Bringing global methods and standards, helps mitigate risk as the banks will be aligned with global banking standards."

SOA will ensure different IT systems within a bank can work together as seamlessly as possible without additional time or cost requirements for integration.

Hans Tesselaar, Executive Director at BIAN adds, "The BIAN community is very pleased to welcome the Swiss headquartered global consultancy firm for the financial industry, Axxiome as one of our latest members. It's my strong belief that this membership will not only benefit Axxiome and BIAN, but the whole Banking Industry. For many years Axxiome is developing their reference models for Financial Services. For BIAN it is a great opportunity to leverage Axxiome's models and industry knowledge. By becoming a member of the BIAN community Axxiome has decide to migrate their models toward the BIAN open industry models to become better positioned for the near future. As know Axxiome has a strong position in the area of SAP for the financial industry and given the fact that SAP is one of the founding members of BIAN, it will also strengthen the value of Axxiome as SAP implementation partner. The BIAN community is looking forwards to the close working relationship that we will develop during the upcoming period."

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software? Absolutely. Toaster? It’s only a matter of time. With service providers positioning vastly differing offerings under a generic “cloud” umbrella, it’s all too easy to get confused about what’s actually being offered. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Kevin Hazard, Director of Digital Content for SoftL...
When it comes to microservices there are myths and uncertainty about the journey ahead.

For those of us that have been practicing SOA for over a decade, it's surprising that there's so much interest in microservices. In fairness microservices don't look like the vendor play that was early SOA in the early noughties. But experienced SOA practitioners everywhere will be wondering if microservices is actually a good thing. You see microservices is basically an SOA pattern that inherits all the well-known SOA principles and adds characteristics that address the use of SOA for distribut...
Microservice architectures are the new hotness, even though they aren't really all that different (in principle) from the paradigm described by SOA (which is dead, or not dead, depending on whom you ask). One of the things this decompositional approach to application architecture does is encourage developers and operations (some might even say DevOps) to re-evaluate scaling strategies. In particular, the notion is forwarded that an application should be built to scale and then infrastructure sho...

Microservices are the result of decomposing applications. That may sound a lot like SOA, but SOA was based on an object-oriented (noun) premise; that is, services were built around an object - like a customer - with all the necessary operations (functions) that go along with it. SOA was also founded on a variety of standards (most of them coming out of OASIS) like SOAP, WSDL, XML and UDDI. Microservices have no standards (at least none deriving from a standards body or organization) and can be b...
Our guest on the podcast this week is Jason Bloomberg, President at Intellyx. When we build services we want them to be lightweight, stateless and scalable while doing one thing really well. In today's cloud world, we're revisiting what to takes to make a good service in the first place. Listen in to learn why following "the book" doesn't necessarily mean that you're solving key business problems.
Right off the bat, Newman advises that we should "think of microservices as a specific approach for SOA in the same way that XP or Scrum are specific approaches for Agile Software development". These analogies are very interesting because my expectation was that microservices is a pattern. So I might infer that microservices is a set of process techniques as opposed to an architectural approach. Yet in the book, Newman clearly includes some elements of concept model and architecture as well as p...
Microservices, for the uninitiated, are essentially the decomposition of applications into multiple services. This decomposition is often based on functional lines, with related functions being grouped together into a service. While this may sound a like SOA, it really isn't, especially given that SOA was an object-centered methodology that focused on creating services around "nouns" like customer and product. Microservices, while certainly capable of being noun-based, are just as likely to be v...
