NEW YORK, Sept. 14, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The global IT services and software engineering company GFT and cloud-native core banking company Thought Machine announce the availability of BankLiteX. Co-developed by GFT and Thought Machine and running on Amazon Web Services (AWS), the new solution enables clients to create and deploy a cloud-based digital bank faster than ever before.
Building block architecture of pluggable components
BankLiteX is a fully modular system designed around Vault, Thought Machine's next-generation cloud-native core banking engine, using AWS's native cloud services hosted on the AWS infrastructure. The system enables banks to create modern, highly flexible end-to-end solutions by delivering the required capabilities to support a multiple-entity, multi-brand, multi-country strategy. Its "building block" architecture of pluggable components works together as one, leveraging an integration layer with microservices utilizing the AWS API gateway.
Steve Hoy, Director of Partnerships at Thought Machine, explains: "Established financial institutions and start-ups are struggling with the limitations of legacy technology. There is now an urgent need to invest in modern core banking technology enabling superior customer service capabilities, reducing complex technology environments, and achieving optimum operational efficiency. That is where BankLiteX, incorporating Vault, our cloud-native core banking solution, comes into its own. The increasing number of inquiries we receive for this type of solution is a clear indication of the industry's growing appetite for change."
Gonzalo Ruiz de Villa, Executive Director and Chief Technology Officer at GFT commented: "BankLiteX incorporates Digital Bank Launcher (DBL), GFT'S new cloud-native asset which developed to enable the modern core banking providers to supercharge the capabilities of their solutions." DBL comprises all the building blocks necessary to deliver digital channels and the banking platform to support integrations with external service providers and the fintech ecosystem.
According to Ruiz de Villa, DBL provides dynamic scalability and ensures consistent quality and security across the full banking stack, from the core banking system to the digital channels and the integration with third parties. It is built using the latest collaborative methods and technologies to ensure that all the teams across the business, from UX and design to DevOps and operations, can operate within a transparent, fully cooperative environment. An API-based experience and a Banking-as-a-Service layer provide a seamless experience across third-party services, products, and custom-made software.
Get a "lite" bank up and running in under 12 weeks
By using BankLiteX's pre-configured components, architecture, and infrastructure, including GFT's DBL accelerator, banks can get a "lite" bank up and running in under 12 weeks. This approach will enable users to quickly deploy different brands across multiple geographies tailored to suit country-specific business and regulatory requirements and support local products and regional partners.
Marco Santos, President GFT USA and Latin America, adds: "The solution was developed based on knowledge and experience GFT has acquired over the years working and delivering innovation to financial institutions all over the globe. BankLiteX will help our clients in the US with their products and services, reducing time to market, minimizing project risks, and controlling operational and development expenditure. It's a technology that can provide great results and benefits for the whole financial ecosystem."

One year ago, Alibaba was the starting point for the regulatory crackdown on Chinese tech giants, when regulators canceled the IPO of Alibaba financial subsidiary Alipay following inflammatory comments by founder Jack Ma.

Shares of satellite communications company Globalstar (NYSEMKT: GSAT) crashed 21% yesterday after it became apparent that Apple's (NASDAQ: AAPL) new iPhone 13 will in fact not enable users to call each other via satellite. In the absence of any actual "good" news to explain the stock's bounce higher, I can only surmise that what we're looking at today is a "dead cat bounce." The way they would have placed that bet would have been by shorting Globalstar stock (i.e., selling stock they did not own, in hopes of buying it back later, cheaper, and returning the shares to their rightful owners).

Drugmaker AbbVie (NYSE: ABBV) pays a relatively high yield of 4.9%. On a $10,000 investment, that's $360 more in annual dividend income you could earn through AbbVie.
