IT architectures need to cope with rapid change and continuous transformation. Yet patterns of architecture within the financial services industry have largely remained unchanged over the last 20 years.
This has led to a sprawl of systems that occupy the Data Centre, making the task of IT management more difficult by increasing both complexity and operational costs.
New financial products may, for example, reside on private cloud infrastructures and be integrated with several federated public cloud offerings and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) providers. Traditional core banking solutions running on legacy mainframes may get pushed out behaving as edge-of-enterprise applications requiring more flexibility and integration.
