Right First Time #4: Deploying Future-Proof Technology
This is the fourth in a series of articles written by Alfa (formerly CHP Consulting) which cover the tasks that are critical to a successful delivery of complex application replacement. It is based on their experience developed over the last 20 years.
The article examines some of the key considerations in deploying modern infrastructure successfully in the enterprise. Leading technology-driven companies in other sectors (Amazon, Google) operate on a huge scale on modern platforms, achieving reliability, innovation and efficiency through intelligent deployment of industrial-strength infrastructure. This success has not always been replicated in the finance industry, where many companies remain dependent on ageing mainframe systems. Meanwhile, others have failed in their attempts to modernise because they have tried to use technology that is unsuitable for their objectives.
Modern technology offers huge potential to the asset and auto finance industries, and this article provides advice on how to get the best out of it for your business.
