With the rise of digital transformation, it’s critical to enable your technology platforms to scale uniformly across the various divisions of your bank to allow you to see the full relationship between your customer and their finances.
Traditional integration tools have been used for building data warehouses and for enabling reporting systems. Mulesoft acts as a centralized and monolithic router, transformer, and orchestrator of data. API-led Connectivity is the new architectural pattern that provides benefits such as composability, reusability, and architectural flexibility for your bank.
The Power of the Enterprise Service Bus for Banks
An enterprise service bus (ESB) provides API-based connectivity with real-time integration. Unlike traditional ETL tools used for data integration, ESB isolates applications, and databases from one another by providing a middle service layer. This abstraction layer reduces dependencies by decoupling systems to provide flexibility.
Developers utilize pre-built connectors to easily create integrations without extensive knowledge of specific application and database internals, and can very quickly apply changes without collapsing an entire integrated system. Shielded by APIs, applications, and databases can be modified and upgraded without unexpected consequences. In comparison to utilizing ETL tools for operational integration, an ESB provides a logical and well-defined approach to take on such an initiative.
