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."

Wow, if you ever wanted to learn about Rugged DevOps (some call it DevSecOps), sit down for a spell with Shannon Lietz, Ian Allison and Scott Kennedy from Intuit. We discussed a number of important topics including internal war games, culture hacking, gamification of Rugged DevOps and starting as a small team. There are 100 gold nuggets in this conversation for novices and experts alike.
In 2006, Martin Fowler posted his now famous essay on Continuous Integration. Looking back, what seemed revolutionary, radical or just plain crazy is now common, pedestrian and "just what you do." I love it. Back then, building and releasing software was a real pain. Integration was something you did at the end, after code complete, and we didn't know how long it would take. Some people may recall how we, as an industry, spent a massive amount of time integrating code from one team with another...

With DevOps becoming more well-known and established practice in nearly every industry that delivers software, it is important to continually reassess its efficacy. This week’s top 10 includes a discussion on how the quick uptake of DevOps adoption in the enterprise has posed some serious challenges. Additionally, organizations who have taken the DevOps plunge must find ways to find, hire and keep their DevOps talent in order to keep the machine running smoothly.
Between the mockups and specs produced by analysts, and resulting applications built by developers, there exists a gulf where projects fail, costs spiral, and applications disappoint. Methodologies like Agile attempt to address this with intensified communication, with partial success but many limitations. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Charles Kendrick, CTO & Chief Architect at Isomorphic Software, will present a revolutionary model enabled by new technologies. Learn how business and devel...
Call it DevOps or not, if you are concerned about releasing more code faster and at a higher quality, the resulting software delivery chain and process will look and smell like DevOps. But for existing development teams, no matter what the velocity objective is, getting from here to there is not something that can be done without a plan. Moving your release cadence from months to weeks is not just about learning Agile practices and getting some automation tools. It involves people, tooling and ...
The notion of customer journeys, of course, are central to the digital marketer’s playbook. Clearly, enterprises should focus their digital efforts on such journeys, as they represent customer interactions over time. But making customer journeys the centerpiece of the enterprise architecture, however, leaves more questions than answers. The challenge arises when EAs consider the context of the customer journey in the overall architecture as well as the architectural elements that make up each...
Much of the discussion around cloud DevOps focuses on the speed with which companies need to get new code into production. This focus is important – because in an increasingly digital marketplace, new code enables new value propositions. New code is also often essential for maintaining competitive parity with market innovators. But new code doesn’t just have to deliver the functionality the business requires. It also has to behave well because the behavior of code in the cloud affects performan...
APIs have taken the world by storm in recent years. The use of APIs has gone beyond just traditional "software" companies, to companies and organizations across industries using APIs to share information and power their applications. For some organizations, APIs are the biggest revenue drivers. For example, Salesforce generates nearly 50% of annual revenue through APIs. In other cases, APIs can increase a business's footprint and initiate collaboration. Netflix, for example, reported over 5 bi...
As the software delivery industry continues to evolve and mature, the challenge of managing the growing list of the tools and processes becomes more daunting every day. Today, Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) platforms are proving most valuable by providing the governance, management and coordination for every stage of development, deployment and release. Recently, I spoke with Madison Moore at SD Times about the changing market and where ALM is headed.
If there is anything we have learned by now, is that every business paves their own unique path for releasing software- every pipeline, implementation and practices are a bit different, and DevOps comes in all shapes and sizes. Software delivery practices are often comprised of set of several complementing (or even competing) methodologies – such as leveraging Agile, DevOps and even a mix of ITIL, to create the combination that’s most suitable for your organization and that maximize your busines...

The goal of any tech business worth its salt is to provide the best product or service to its clients in the most efficient and cost-effective way possible. This is just as true in the development of software products as it is in other product design services. Microservices, an app architecture style that leans mostly on independent, self-contained programs, are quickly becoming the new norm, so to speak. With this change comes a declining reliance on older SOAs like COBRA, a push toward more s...
The proper isolation of resources is essential for multi-tenant environments. The traditional approach to isolate resources is, however, rather heavyweight.

He will also discuss the implementation of microservices in data and applicat...
