Case study: EBank and Fiorano – core banking integration
Fiorano Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) seamlessly integrates EBank’s Temenos T24 core banking system with third party suppliers and channels facilitating its vision of financial inclusion.
EBank’s business model is built around the requirement to quickly and efficiently integrate with third-party suppliers and vendors, to provide clients with a wide range of services and enable them to complete banking transactions at the retail outlets that have partnered and integrated with EBank.
Ebank runs its Temenos core banking system – T24 – on a Microsoft Server Environment using VMware hosting databases on SQL. The EBank environment core processes about 3,000 transactions a day and there are 7 applications talking to each other. The exchange of data is done in various formats, including xml, ISO8583 and ISO20021 with 30 internal users operating on the environment.
As such, EBank was looking for an integration platform that would allow for seamless integration using a multitude of interface language protocols without having to perform development on the core banking system itself. In addition, EBank’s philosophy of offering affordable banking services to its clients dictated that EBank had to contain its spend on infrastructure capacity. EBank, therefore was looking for an integration platform which was not resource intensive and had a low cost of operation and maintenance.
Initial analysis of integration platforms at EBank pointed out that the required combination of high flexibility with low resource consumption was not commonly found.
EBank implemented Fiorano ESB together with a new core banking instance from Temenos.
The implementation commenced in June 2016 and EBank went live with all systems at the beginning of March 2017, within a period of eight months from project commencement.
