In today’s ever-evolving financial landscape, it is imperative to continuously modernise your technology stack. Join us for an insightful discussion as we delve into the complex challenges faced by our engineering teams in upgrading the bank’s technological foundations while continuing to run our operations and deliver for the business.

We will explore the delicate balance required to maintain business continuity while driving innovation in an industry where downtime is just not an option. In this session, you will gain insights into strategies for successful modernisation, such as phased approaches, cloud integrations and micro services architecture. You will understand the importance of parallel processing, redundancy, and failure testing to minimise disruptions. We will explore the options which empowered us to not only adapt to the digital world but doing so while keeping the wheels of finance turning.

  • Teamwork: Importance of close collaboration with all parties to manage inter dependencies crucial for successful delivery
