I would like to thank the SNS Bank for making this possible and for being a great reference over the years. Even though I moved on to JBoss at Red Hat, they always make me feel at home when I am on site.
If you get the chance to join us at JBoss World 2011 in Boston, MA on May 3-5, please stop by and catch this session on the award winning work that SNS Bank has been doing with Open Source JBoss products. Both Michel de Blok and I worked on the solutions to be presented. He brings great depth and experience from implementing JBoss products so you won't want to miss the chance to ask a few questions at our session!
Pioneering a Path to the Future with JBoss BPM
Michel Blok — Senior Software Engineer, SNS Bank
Eric Schabell — JBoss Solution Architect, Red Hat
As one of the top four Dutch financial institutions, SNS Bank in the Netherlands made a strategic decision to use technology to empower its customers online by fully automating its service and selling channels. In order to effectively move toward a full-scale straight-through processing (STP) experience, SNS Bank chose to achieve its goals by making use of open source software, service-oriented architecture (SOA), and business process management (BPM).
In this session, SNS Bank’s Michel Blok and Red Hat’s Eric Schabell will:
- Take attendees through the history of SNS Bank, laying the groundwork for the vision and strategy for choosing JBoss open source solutions
- Explain the move from a traditional bank to a modern Internet bank providing innovative selling channels
- Describe the existing architecture, detailing the impact this move has had on existing IT systems and the migration efforts to position open source solutions
- Provide a closer look at the lessons learned along the way, giving insight into a working open source STP BPM solution that is cost effective, reliable, flexible, and tailored to evolve with SNS Bank into the future
