Oracle Banking Platform
Oracle Banking Platform is a componentized solution designed as a native service-oriented architecture (SOA) platform, helping banks progressively transform their business models by streamlining and automating business processes; adopting new distribution strategies and implementing key enterprise services.
Oracle Banking Platform has been designed and engineered for global banks that are looking at transforming and overhauling their legacy systems. It comprises both banking-specific applications and enterprise applications built on Oracle Fusion Middleware products and Oracle Database technologies.

The services are built to ‘enterprise grade’ standards and can be deployed at the Application or Enterprise level. Oracle Banking Platform is a comprehensive, pre integrated solution which is underpinned by an industrial strength Reference Process Model and is developed leveraging over two decades of expertise in the financial services industry gained from more than 500 + core banking implementations.
