The pace of change in technology, and the increase in mergers and acquisition activity has left many financial institutions with the requirement to manage multiple platforms.
As a result many financial institutions need to provide access to existing SNA-based payment applications across TCP/IP backbone networks, support payment applications to participate in Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), and to protect their payment applications regardless of how they are being accessed.
ACI's range of communication services enable message exchange among disparate applications on multiple platforms and provide secure web enablement of payment applications.
