Digital Banking Transformation Drivers

Address diversified demands and extend multi-channel reach

Situation:

Consumer-centric ecosystems enable banks to engage people of all ages and income levels in using their digital services. Developing these ecosystems helps CIOs drive strategic digital business transformation. Banks need a digital interface that relies heavily on integrations with their core system to enable a seamless multi-channel experience for customers.

  • BMC Digital Workplace (formerly MyIT) is a mobile self-service app with formless, context-aware requests, and crowd-sourced problem-solving for dynamic workgroups.

  • Remedy Service Management with SmartIT, based on best-practice service management processes, is the backbone for configuration and asset lifecycle management for connected devices, business partners, and customers.

Offer personalized and innovative new services

Situation:

Customers are demanding that banks provide the same customer experience as their insurers, retailers, and social media. Millennials are highly influenced by their family and friends and are twice as likely to transact online. To overcome these challenges while maintaining brand image requires IT to deliver highly available systems on stable, compliant platforms. New FinTech entrants are raising the bar on technology expectations, driving new, competitive services at an accelerated rate.

  • TrueSight Intelligence helps you discover, organize, and analyze high volumes of operations data to better understand the customer experience.

Protect your brand and data from hackers

Situation:

Security is a top priority for banks, yet an insufficient amount of an IT budget is typically dedicated to information security. Investments in the right technology allow banks to not only avoid breaches but also quickly remediate threats. New business models promoting global best practices require significant changes to many banks’ current operating models. IT must be prepared to meet these requirements so focus can return to more strategic initiatives.

BMC solutions:

  • BMC Discovery automates asset discovery and dependency mapping, giving IT a view of all enterprise assets and their relationships.
  • Remedy Change Management offers process planning, automation, and support so reporting on system actions is made available to auditors in real-time.

  • BladeLogic Server Automation provides automated management, control and enforcement of server configuration changes in the data center and cloud.

Dynamically respond to the rapid pace of change

Situation:

Banks have been re-architecting legacy systems for years in an effort to create an agile, efficient, and lean technology environment. Legacy systems often lack the visibility needed to effectively manage customer expectations, typically have more compliance-related issues, and inhibit the speed at which new products are released. Modernizing them to meet the needs of digital banking depends heavily on automation, and requires an enterprise-level view of the business to acquire the support and investment required for this transformation.

BMC solutions:

  • Release Lifecycle Management supports agile development with continuous DevOps processes and automation applied to open source, PaaS, big data, machine learning, and IoT.
  • Control-M is the leading business application job scheduling platform, simplifying and automating critical batch applications across complex environments.
