Driving Innovation in Banking

The Portfolio with Possibilities

The banking market is changing fast. As an incumbent, you became one of the biggest and best for a reason, but many find themselves getting “Minted” by fintech third parties while their hands are full managing the complications of big banking. You know the situation and you’ve probably got a great plan — now it’s time to execute, launch and build. But how to unlock your greatest potential? The key is an API Portfolio.

In the new economy, the need to diversify investment initiatives is more pressing than ever. The market is moving too fast and large enterprises have much to manage while being nimble and responsive. With an API Portfolio you can choose what to unlock, have the ability to launch fast , and readily plan for your next step in digital transformation — while fitting in to the plan and architecture you already have.

Having one holistic repository of all of your business capabilities as APIs, aligned to data in motion, paves the way for future innovation as the enterprise gains visibility of the portfolio across Lines of Business and regions. With ignite, you’re spurring reuse to build fast, internal exposure for operational efficiency, and third party innovation to become globally common and locally relevant.

This design-first approach automates much of the “Build” phase with tech-agnostic code templates and artifacts, which are then pushed directly into “Run” through ignite, or the runtime manager of your choice.

ignite brings Business and IT together in the early design stages to innovate over powerful search-and-discover views of your enterprise’s full capabilities. In our design stage, leaders are able to define resources under one information model updated across your entire portfolio, unlocking consistent resources, change management, and ownership of core functions.
