What you can expect

Bank of America has embarked on a multi-year core banking transformation journey to replace its legacy core banking platform with modern technology platforms. As part of the core banking platform transformation, the bank is revamping its end to end ecosystem to improve operational & technological efficiency. The core banking platform supports multiple functions in Global Banking and Markets business: e.g. payments, deposits, credit, trade finance, foreign exchange, general ledger. The platform is being built in an ongoing and agile process to easily adapt to new technologies, integrate more tools, and provide a structure that is able to evolve over time. At the core of this transformation is the Bank-in-a-Box (BiB) platform. BiB uses simpler architecture and modern technology, eliminates applications, and is easier to enhance and update.

The Bank-in-a-Box (BiB) roadmap spans several years, covering Global Payments Transformation (GPT), CLI, and Branch replacement. The first BiB implementation was successfully completed in Oct 2020 for Indonesia, to address the local regulatory requirement to host core banking infrastructure onshore. 2021 initiatives include SEPA Instant, HK Real Time Payments and Regulatory mandates such as Indonesia Direct Debits and Indonesia RTP. The GPT budget is expected to increase significantly in 2022, with implementations across APAC, EMEA and LATAM. The BiB Centre of Excellence will be at the heart of this Payments Transformation Program.
