UNICOM Systems Announces New Release of Multichannel Bank Transformation Toolkit acquired from IBM Corp.

Transaction Banking

UNICOM Systems, Inc. has today announced a new release of the UNICOM® Multichannel Bank Transformation Toolkit, which was acquired from IBM Corporation in March 2016. New features have been added to enhance performance and usability, as well as support for Docker Containers to allow faster, easier deployment of applications both in cloud environments and on premises.

The UNICOM Multichannel Bank Transformation Toolkit (BTT), available from the UNICOM Systems TeamBLUETM organization, delivers faster application development and an improved runtime infrastructure for banks, based on IBM WebSphere® Application Server. BTT helps businesses deliver targeted multichannel marketing campaigns and provides prebuilt solution templates for rapid delivery of high-volume mobile and internet banking applications.

“The rapid pace of change in financial services means banks are under constant pressure to modernize and deliver better and more satisfying customer experiences across new digital channels. We are continually enhancing the UNICOM Multichannel Bank Transformation Toolkit to help developers innovate and work faster and smarter to deliver new multichannel applications that increase customer engagement,” said Russ Guzzo, UNICOM’s VP of Sales and Marketing.

The new release, UNICOM Multichannel Bank Transformation Toolkit 8.2.1, now runs on WebSphere Liberty (16.0.0.3) and also on Liberty in a Docker container. Packaging the software and runtime environment in a Docker container ensures that it will run reliably on any platform and makes deployment fast, secure and lightweight.

New features that support performance improvements for application developers include a new browser side caching service for widgets, and a new data service that leverages the WebSphere DynaCache service to store or access cached data across multiple server nodes.

New features that improve usability for application developers include:

  • A new dynamic business process flow component – this saves time for flow designers by allowing business process steps to be reused. Complex processes (such as an error handling flow) or simple components (such as a popup page) can be inserted at any point in a flow. This frees designers from recreating repetitive tasks and allows them to focus on the important parts of their flow design.
  • Calendar enhancements – new global functions support calendar type data objects for web services in order to ensure more accurate time representation.
  • Reduced page loading time – a new ‘do nothing’ transition in the transaction editor improves AJAX flow support and ensures that only data is refreshed, rather than requiring a complete server-side re-rendering of the page, for faster page loading.
  • Extended business logic – a new feature allowing an optional action to be launched by the server after the final state following execution of a workflow gives designers the capability to create more complex business logic.

In addition to its ongoing commitment to releasing new features and functionality to support application development in retail banking, UNICOM Systems plans to extend the toolkit to meet the needs of customers operating in other markets.

“Companies across practically every industry sector face similar challenges as they seek to modernize their applications and go digital. BTT offers a fast and painless way for businesses to deliver new multichannel applications and create a seamless customer journey without changing their core business applications,” said Russ Guzzo.
