Application and platform modernization for cutting-edge solutions in the financial services industry

Financial institutions face many unique challenges, and our engineers know how to meet the specialized needs required in this ever-evolving industry. Our experts draw from their extensive experience, confidently guiding clients through the obstacles they face, and provide innovative solutions to modern problems.

Industry Challenges

Although the financial services industry landscape is incredibly diverse, the businesses within this sector share many of the same challenges:

  • # Maintaining, upgrading, and dealing with antiquated infrastructure/technology that can’t deal with real-time needs is hard to do when you’re also trying to deliver new features.

  • # The explosion in data requires novel approaches to deliver the hyper-personalization and automated decision-making at scale.

  • # Data-driven solutions can be hard to scale from the data science workbench. New software patterns and approaches are required to support big data solutions as well as machine learning and artificial intelligence in production.
