Published May 2007; Posted May 2007
Banking customers have more choices available to them today than ever before, in terms of where and when they want to bank and the choice of services and products available to them. Banks are looking to new technology approaches as one option to help them meet these new demands. A significant technical challenge they face continues to be that of application development, in particular, the ability to develop and deploy new network-based applications quickly and cost-effectively that utilize new capabilities across the network. These can range from mobility to new media such as video to network collaboration services such as presence. Cisco® has developed a framework called the Cisco Service-Oriented Network Architecture (SONA), which includes a suite of reusable services that are built into the network infrastructure. This white paper will show how banks can use and reuse these services to develop new revenue-producing applications more quickly and cost-effectively than on networks that lack these integrated capabilities.
