Background to the role
Introduction“Nearly 50% of banks do not upgrade old IT systems as soon as they should, and 43% of US banks still use COBOL, a programming language dating from 1959 …and extra layers embedded on top of it are causing outage” – UK FCA in its annual report.In other words, banking systems are outdated and cannot be easily modernized.
