BIAN Edition 2019


It’s been over 10 years now that some influential players in the financial services industry bundled their forces to stop the ever growing cost for IT integration. The Banking Industry Architecture Network was born.

After 10 years of hard work of all members in our community we have packaged all the knowledge and insights in this book.

At BIAN we believe that the Banking industry wastes over a billion dollars each year due to the complexity of our core technologies and integration approaches that only ignore the problem, if not add to the dilemma. This has become one of the primary reason Banks are not getting anticipated benefits from their digital transformations. We must rid ourselves of the anchor that is slowing us down which is proprietary core banking solutions that are today’s legacy technologies only to be tomorrows if we do not change.

This book covers all aspects of Architecture for the financial services industry. It should support all involved to help their organizations to enter a truly digital world.

Besides our original Service Oriented view, the authors also included our latest insight on Enterprise Architecture and give you guidance in the fast evolving API arena.
