Banking platform transformation affects the whole organisation. Orbium has experts to help clients prepare and integrate the transformation across product, business process, function and stakeholder priorities, as well as the wider IT systems.

Today’s platforms must be flexible enough to deliver the sophisticated products and services demanded by customers and enable businesses to meet ever-more complex regulation while delivering cost efficiencies from synergies and automation. It is the key to growth and economies of scale. But replacing or improving core banking platforms is seen as challenging, expensive and time-consuming. This is where Orbium can help.

Third-party system integration

Open banking and responsive RESTful APIs eliminate the need for data duplication. But success requires the seamless integration of the core banking platform with client, portfolio and transaction models via a dynamic ecosystem.

Over many years we have cultivated our own partner ecosystem, members of which support our clients to ensure they get the best solution efficiently in terms of system, data and process architectures.
