Business Goals

S-Bank is a fast-growing Finnish bank serving about 3 million customers. In particular, S-Bank has grown through its mobile bank: S-Bank's mobile application is the only Finnish application that connects a bank and a retailer.

S-Bank wanted to implement an integration strategy, where they are able to develop and operate all of the integrations inhouse using DevOps teams. Additionally speeding up solution time to market while operating in an extremely secure banking environment was one of the main goals.

Integration Challenges

The challenge was an aging and unstable integration platform, with minimal support from the vendor. One additional challenge was the complicated IT-environment where, both secure, but old, core-banking systems and external customer facing services need to communicate securely and reliably at all times.

Results

With FRENDS, S-Bank's integration environment is more stable than before and with a third of previous costs. At the same time, the quality of the solutions has increased.

During a major network outage, the services published on FRENDS continued to operate - even without connection to the FRENDS core. When the network connections resumed, FRENDS continued to operate without interruption.
