The underlying technology runs on the best of breed technology available today such as Spring Boot, Netflix OSS, coupled with our own in-house libraries to ensure consistent delivery to a highly regulated banking market. Our technology drives solutions in a variety of ways for customers, from cloud native, globally scaled deployments to on premise managed application servers, demanding smart thinking and innovative solutions from our people.
