As financial institutions strive to evolve and improve their systems and service content (and respond quickly to market requirements) it has become critical to connect these market requirements efficiently into their diverse systems development activities. To answer this challenge, many Global 1000 financial services organizations use Integrity to manage critical software applications and processes.
Integrity enables best practices across the application lifecycle and helps financial services organizations to:
- ensure regulatory compliance by providing complete traceability and auditability across development and IT-related processes
- manage a diverse array of internally-developed and COTS software in an IT/development environment
- mitigate the risks associated with globalized development, outsourcing and offshoring by collaborating across organizations and geographies with a single, unified ALM solution
- capture customer incidents (across a wide variety of touch points) and translate them into actionable problems, which can then drive change requests (and ultimately new software for release)
- enhance global team productivity and reduce costs through artifact re-use and process automation
- achieve greater flexibility and responsiveness in development activities by connecting upstream requirements documents and activities to downstream development and providing enterprise support for iterative development methodologies such as Agile
For Financial Services organizations Integrity can address not only the requirements of application development for in-house development teams but also the management, deployment and ongoing maintenance of applications throughout the organization. Many banks and financial institutions use Integrity to improve their systems content and customer service.
Drawing on the experiences and deployments at leading financial services organizations, Integrity can offer prebuilt reports, templates, workflows and other components that are designed to address key challenges and regulatory requirements faced by financial services organizations.
This functionality extends through the entire application lifecycle, from Requirements Management, through Software Configuration and Change Management to Testing and Release Management. The unified architecture of Integrity provides unparalleled process flexibility and interconnectivity across all artifacts and all stages of the lifecycle.
