Top 20 US Bank Chooses OpenLegacy to Transform Legacy Systems

OpenLegacy, the leader in delivering microservices-based API integration and management for core and legacy systems, is speeding digital transformation of one of the United States’ largest banks by seamlessly integrating its mainframe into its new digital platform.

The bank is part of the fifth biggest banking group in the world, offering personal, business, commercial, and private banking services in branches across California, Washington, and Oregon.

OpenLegacy takes any core system to the web, mobile, or cloud by connecting directly to the legacy system, automatically generating APIs, and then enabling rapid deployment virtually anywhere using microservices.

Incorporating significant mainframe workloads into their new Kafka-based, event-driven architecture was the biggest obstacle in the bank’s digital transformation journey. Due to complex layers of middleware, the project was expected to take months.

The OpenLegacy technology changed the mainframe from a business burden into a business enabler by streamlining communication initiated both inside and outside the legacy system, completely bypassing the middleware. OpenLegacy’s platform includes unique new functionality called the API Caller that allows the mainframe to initiate calls to digital services. Within two short weeks of the pilot, five different use cases were already up and running.

“With OpenLegacy, the bank was able to bypass its out-of-date, hard-to-work-with middleware stack to connect its legacy system to its new digital platform,” said Zeev Avidan, OpenLegacy Chief Product Officer. “By automatically generating the code to create microservice-based APIs that can be deployed anywhere, OpenLegacy helped them minimize complexity, lower total cost of ownership, and improve API speed and performance.”

OpenLegacy supported the bank’s new architecture in record time, with complete adherence to agile and DevOps principles. It also maximized the value of existing hardware, helping the bank attain lower processor and memory consumption than other solutions offered.
