Real-time payments introduce a range of challenges for banks in terms of managing their own liquidity. Intelligently managing payment flows between new instant payment schemes and other routes is essential to achieving this, but older systems are not up to the task - and wholesale rip-and-replace projects are fraught with difficulties.
Newer payment orchestration platforms are using a combination of high-performance transaction processing engines and graphical development tools to create flexible ways for business and technical users to rapidly model and control payment flows across the bank.
Features and benefits:
- This report examines how Icon Solutions has developed a new-generation payment orchestration architecture using an open source software stack.
