BEA Systems To Build SOA Web Services Architecture To Swedish Company

Leading Swedish Mortgage Provider Selects BEA To Build a Service-Oriented Architecture

BEA Systems announced that SBAB has selected BEA to build a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA). This leading Swedish mortgage provider is launching a program to automate the processes used to manage relationships with its 250,000 customers. Its innovative Service-Oriented Architecture is designed to provide SBAB with the flexibility to manage product, market and competitive change, and simultaneously comply with current and emerging compliance legislation.

“The ideal way to enhance the service we provide to our customers is through flexible, instant and comprehensive access to information—in other words a liquid data environment,” explained Bo Andersson, Enterprise Architect, SBAB. “Automating many of our day-to-day processes can help us understand more about the needs, preferences and behavior of our customers. This is designed to help the company to respond more quickly and deliver an even more rewarding service experience. We believe BEA Systems is the ideal partner to help us achieve this— they have a vast array of solutions, from the application server and portal solutions to the complete integration platforms.”

SBAB evaluated different application infrastructure solutions, and chose BEA Systems based on the platform independence of the solution. BEA’s strong market reputation and its size were two further supporting factors.

SBAB has a 15.3 percent share of the Swedish mortgage industry. The company has a mission to simplify and challenge the way customers choose and buy a mortgage: making the entire process as easy as buying food in a supermarket or buying a consumer product through the Internet. To achieve this, SBAB needed a solution designed to remove the barriers which lay between its core business processes—consumer mortgages, business customers, finance and administration—and allow information to flow freely to those who need it. The other challenges are to deploy the IT solution quickly, ensure that all information remained accountable and ensure that it complied with the ever changing rules and regulations of the business.

The answer for SBAB is a Service-Oriented Architecture. By building an infrastructure based on standard, flexible products which adapt to business requirements, SBAB can have the flexibility to respond more rapidly to business change and create a service-centric environment. SBAB has already built a concept model with a number of small and easy-to-use services, which are now in production and generating revenue.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
