Overcoming Legacy Infrastructure Obstacles To Enable Digital Transformation

As a technology leader who has spent decades working with organizations with legacy infrastructure, particularly mainframe and midrange systems, I've seen the challenges of digital transformation firsthand.

I use the broad catchall term "digital transformation" here to denote everything from modernizing architecture (e.g., moving to the cloud) to software development practices (e.g., DevOps) to product offerings (e.g., development of new digital services) in an effort to better serve customers. This can be a particularly harrowing journey for organizations with extensive legacy architecture.

Bank Director Features OpenLegacy in their FinXTech Intelligence Report "APIs - New Opportunities for Revenue and Efficiency"

APIs make it possible for customers to open and fund new accounts instantly and remotely. As a corollary, they help banks bring in deposits when people can’t visit a branch. The technology pulls data from mobile applications, ATMs, call centers and chat conversations into systems that use it to send timely and topical messages to customers. APIs also enable capabilities like real-time Bank Secrecy Act checks — an invaluable tool for banks struggling to process the onslaught of Paycheck Protection Program loans provided by the Small Business Administration to stem the tide of losses from the coronavirus crisis.

Microservices: The Advantages of SOA Without Its Drawbacks

Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) was the great hope of organizations decades ago when they sought to advance legacy system integration, reduce and bypass layers, and rapidly access the system of record. At the time, the existing solution was point-to-point integration, creating a brittle “spaghetti” middle layer that was hard to manage. This was replaced by SOA, which was later augmented with ESB. This fixed the spaghetti mess by creating an intermediate set of layers, which added complexity to the integration process.
