Meeting big challenges

Opencast has helped our financial services clients tackle significant enterprise-level challenges. We've worked with global banks to build data analytics calculation engines to analyse and inform strategic business decisions.

We have helped improve auditing through developing microservice and API-based data indexing to enable C-suite leaders to identify potential audit gaps, achieve compliance and build service resilience.

We worked with a global bank to improve its on-premise trading and settlement system, taking responsibility for upgrading and maintaining platforms and building internal roadmaps. Our team architected the services to help deliver an event-driven trades and settlements system, handling over a million equities trades every day.

Building in-house capacity

More broadly, we have worked with financial institutions to assess their digital maturity and improve their software development practices. Our consultants are adept at embedding test-driven development (TDD), alongside agile principles and methodologies. We are used to supporting teams to build in-house capability and accelerate digital transformation by significantly increasing the pace and frequency of releases.

Our team of highly skilled consultants bring domain knowledge built up over extensive work in the sector. Our consultants have worked at organisations including Barclaycard, BNP Paribas, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, HSBC, Lloyds Banking Group, Santander, Co-operative Bank, Virgin Money and Yorkshire Building Society, amongst others.
