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."

Discussions about cloud computing are evolving into discussions about enterprise IT in general. As enterprises increasingly migrate toward their own unique clouds, new issues such as the use of containers and microservices emerge to keep things interesting. In this Power Panel at 16th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the state of cloud computing today, and what enterprise IT professionals need to know about how the latest topics and trends affect t...
Countless business models have spawned from the IaaS industry. Resell Web hosting, blogs, public cloud, and on and on. With the overwhelming amount of tools available to us, it's sometimes easy to overlook that many of them are just new skins of resources we've had for a long time. In his General Session at 16th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Lead Technology Evangelist at SoftLayer, broke down what we've got to work with and discuss the benefits and pitfalls to discover how we can best use them to d...
Enterprises are turning to the hybrid cloud to drive greater scalability and cost-effectiveness. But enterprises should beware as the definition of “policy” varies wildly. Some say it’s the ability to control the resources apps’ use or where the apps run. Others view policy as governing the permissions and delivering security. Policy is all of that and more. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Derek Collison, founder and CEO of Apcera, explained what policy is, he showed how policy should be arch...
Public Cloud IaaS started its life in the developer and startup communities and has grown rapidly to a $20B+ industry, but it still pales in comparison to how much is spent worldwide on IT: $3.6 trillion. In fact, there are 8.6 million data centers worldwide, the reality is many small and medium sized business have server closets and colocation footprints filled with servers and storage gear. While on-premise environment virtualization may have peaked at 75%, the Public Cloud has lagged in adop...
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...
DevOps Summit, taking place Nov 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, is co-located with 17th Cloud Expo and will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development...
One of the hottest new terms in the world of enterprise computing is the microservice. Starting with the seminal 2014 article by James Lewis and Martin Fowler of ThoughtWorks, microservices have taken on a life of their own – and as with any other overhyped term, they have generated their fair share of confusion as well. Perhaps the best definition of microservices comes from Janakiram MSV, Principal at Janakiram & Associates. “Microservices are fine-grained units of execution. They are designe...
Agile, which started in the development organization, has gradually expanded into other areas downstream - namely IT and Operations. Teams – then teams of teams – have streamlined processes, improved feedback loops and driven a much faster pace into IT departments which have had profound effects on the entire organization. In his session at DevOps Summit, Anders Wallgren, Chief Technology Officer of Electric Cloud, will discuss how DevOps and Continuous Delivery have emerged to help connect dev...

One of the charter responsibilities of DevOps (because it's a charter responsibility of ops) is measuring and monitoring applications once they're in production. That means both performance and availability. Which means a lot more than folks might initially think because generally speaking what you measure and monitor is a bit different depending on whether you're looking at performance or availability*.
In the last blog we started the conversation on our findings from @Cloud Expo 2015 and @ThingsExpo 2015 as the industry came together to explore the impact of Cloud and Internet of Things (IoT) on business models as we know them. While often the focus of IoT are consumer services and the sometimes over-simplification of what constitutes an IoT company or service, one area there is no disputing is the significant advancement in the Industrial Internet (a term made popular by GE). Ongoing improvem...
The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
Microservices are individual units of executable code that work within a limited framework. They are extremely useful when placed within an architecture of numerous microservices. On June 24th, 2015 I attended a webinar titled “How to Share Share-Nothing Microservices,” hosted by Jason Bloomberg, the President of Intellyx, and Scott Edwards, Director Product Marketing for Service Virtualization at CA Technologies. The webinar explained how to use microservices to your advantage in order to deliv...

In my last Cortex newsletter, I discussed the history of Conway’s Law, and took a close look at how this erstwhile law can help us understand the reorganizations and deeper cultural shifts behind devops and digital transformation. The law – “any organization that designs a system will inevitably produce a design whose structure is a copy of the organization’s communication structure” – is more of an observation of correlations between system designs and communication structures, rather than any...
DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
