Synovus had many disparate applications serving multiple lines of business, where information needed by each centralized application was fetched either by batch process or application-centric functions. As a result of increased real-time data requirements and the velocity of data change needed within the organization, the Synovus technology team adopted a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). The migration to SOA allowed Synovus to rely on interoperable services with well-defined business functionality built on software components that can be reused for different purposes.
In this paper you will see how Synovus has achieved major IT goals including
- Implementing an SOA strategy to enable legacy and new applications to securely share business rules and data
- Enabled fast and efficient SSO to Synovus and third-party applications
- Dramatically accelerated the response time for authenticating users for online banking while enabling SSO to third-party applications
- Re-used existing web services to swiftly deploy new applications—such as creating and testing a mobile banking application within 40 days
