Jack Henry unveils JHA Marketplace for collaborative core customisation
US-based banking software heavyweight Jack Henry has launched JHA Marketplace for shared core customisation.
The online store enables banks to access and exchange applications related to workflow automation, “flexible” data integration, and other “performance-driving” functions.
JHA Marketplace will be filled with a range of PowerOn applications. PowerOn is Jack Henry’s utility allowing a bank’s IT staff to develop programming solutions independent of the core code.
Jack Henry says Washington-based Banner Bank was an early adopter of PowerOn.
Bev Miller, SVP of loan operations support at the $9.4 billion-asset bank, says: “PowerOn leverages the expertise of our software engineers, and enables presentment of non-JHA solutions in a manner that is efficient and easy to use.”
Miller adds JHA Marketplace “should increase interest and sharing of code among the community of Jack Henry banks and reveal untapped potential of our core systems”.
Recently, Jack Henry and its Symitar subsidiary were busy with a number of core software projects across the US.
