The State Of The Art In Agile Software Development

For a bank or an insurance institution, technology is “the” business. Now, more than ever, customers expect intuitive user interactions in real-time, anywhere, and on any device, every time they communicate with a financial institution. To address rising customer expectations and ever-growing competition from digital-native firms and FinTech start-ups, financial institutions must increase their digital maturity. They must be able to nimbly plug-and-play new services and components (into their operations) to meet changing customer demands, and the new skills and mindsets required.

For many companies, the move toward becoming a technology business is a long and complex journey. After all, it requires significant changes to the existing IT landscape. The IT portfolio of a thriving technology business must be nimble, easy to use, and built on top of cloud-native capabilities – predicting and adapting to ever-changing demands and requirements. However, we understand that applying a new application blueprint is far from straightforward. Apart from FinTech startups, older technologies are a common feature in the core systems of most companies.
