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."

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists will discuss how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations m...

A few weeks ago, SmartBear hosted API Craft Boston with the folks from Akana, Ian Goldsmith and Laura Heritage, to talk about microservices. It was an extremely informative presentation of where microservices came from, what it solves, and considerations around how it might fit into an organizational API strategy. It’s one thing to read everyone else’s opinions on blogs, twitter, etc. It’s great to go to workshops and conferences, but this was so intelligently presented (and for a meetup too)...

An explosive combination of technology trends will be where ‘microservices’ and the IoT Internet of Things intersect, a concept we can describe by comparing it with a previous theme, the ‘X Internet.' The idea of using small self-contained application components has been popular since XML Web services began and a distributed computing future of smart fridges and kettles was imagined long back in the early Internet years.
