Core Modernization

Infrastructure that meets the future needs of banking 

Changing regulations and growing customer expectations require banks and financial services institutions to have agile applications and infrastructure. If you're operating with complex, inflexible, and expensive to maintain legacy application stacks, you won't be able to keep up with the changing business mandates. The push towards instant/near real-time and faster processing has led banks and financial institutions to take a harder look at their end-to-end (E2E) application ecosystem, business agility, customer user journey, processing SLAs, and technology expectations.

What if you could modernize your application ecosystem to become highly scalable, resilient, efficient, and future-proof?

Virtusa's Core Modernization services help banks and financial institutions transform legacy technology and applications into a modern ecosystem. We not only define, execute, and validate your solution but can assist you with the decision to build, buy, or collaborate with FinTech and high-tech companies.
