Build & Renovate

Our Build & Renovate approach allows you to build a new front-to-back stack for one, ring-fenced business line with minimal legacy integration. Then renovate continuously based on continuous deployment technologies to migrate remaining business (i.e. customer segments, geographies, platforms, etc.) This reduces the complexity, time and risk of constructing many interfaces between old and new systems for use during implementation.

Continuous Renovation

The Continous Renovation approach provides the sequential implementation of enterprise-wide capabilities (i.e. channels, front office, product bundling & pricing, etc.) in separate horizontal layers, each of which is independently deployable and upgradeable but requires integration between new capabilities and existing architecture.

Big Bang

As the name of this approach suggests, all functionality to support the entire bank’s scope is built in one step. The entire migration of business occurs at the end of the program.
