To help banks establish a service-oriented architecture (SOA) for their business operations, 17 organisations have joined to create the Banking Industry Architecture Network (BIAN). The goal of BIAN is to help banks ease the transition to SOA by gathering together a community of industry players and global banks that will openly share domain and technical expertise to apply SOA principles and methodologies. Based on the foundation of the Industry Value Network (IVN) for banks created by SAP, the founder members of BIAN are: AXON, Callataÿ & Wouters, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, Deutsche Postbank, Finanz IT, ifb group, ING, Microsoft, SAP, Standard Bank, Steria, SunGard, SWIFT, Syskoplan, Temenos and Zürcher Kantonalbank. Working with standards bodies and banks worldwide, BIAN aims to encourage standards and best practice adoption, define enterprise services, and develop and deliver SOA and business process management based banking platforms. BIAN’s work will help banks to more flexibly use software to run core banking processes and achieve better interoperability among their IT systems.
