The BIAN model fits perfectly in line with how we view enterprise architecture (EA) at PNC. One of the first steps we took as an organisation was to bring a business perspective to enterprise architecture. To us, technology is not just a collection of servers and software, but rather a set of technical solutions that are aligned to specific business capabilities and functions.
Cognizant Technology Solutions, led by Sanghosh Bhalla, Niloy Sengupta and Akshaya Bhargava from the firm’s Banking and Financial Services Consulting practice, recently helped a top three North American bank, adopt BIAN and optimize their enterprise portfolio of applications that support business functions across all of its business units.
As a vendor that grew through acquisitions, we inherited a rich collection of applications that have their application specific interfaces. Applications that had similar scope ended up having their specific interfaces for essentially the same responsibilities. One of our strategic goals was to cut integration time and cost and over time achieve plug-and-play interoperability between different applications in our portfolio.
The Van Haren Learning Solutions Certifications are qualitative standards from which there owners in thrust into Van Haren learning Solutions to govern their certification. We enable them global delivery, qualitative support and a vast network or expert, trainers and end users to support their certification.
The Banking Industry Architecture Network (BIAN) is an association of banks, solution providers and educational institutions with the shared aim of defining a semantic service operation standard for the banking industry.
BIAN’s goal: a standard definition to be set for business functions and service interactions that describe the general internal workings of any bank. Such a standard will be a significant benefit to the industry.
