Platform Consolidation

To drive efficiencies in the payments business, banks are increasingly pursuing platform consolidation through implementation of Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) products.

Banks are embracing lean in payments business and the scope of efficiency in the payments IT landscape is high. Some of the most evident initiatives being pursued are: cards issuing platform consolidation, payments hub implementation, messaging infrastructure consolidation etc. across the bank's BUs and geographies.
