Day to day, Bartels focuses on what he refers to as “plain vanilla payments, cash management, liquidity management or working capital solutions” and explains that most of his clients are US companies that view the bank as their European strategic partner.“That’s where our sweet spot is. The US market is completely different than in Europe as you only have...
Our vendor choices were typically determined by our own familiarity. We used AWS as our infrastructure provider, and we used Cloudflare as our DoS protection for similar reasons. For email and email verification, we used SES to trigger an email forwarder lambda and save a copy of the email to an S3 bucket. The lambda then pulled the email from the S3 bucket and forwarded the contents to the recipients defined in the lambda. Eventually, we swapped out our EC2 instance hosting an Ethereum node with Infura as this gave us reliable connectivity to the ETH blockchain for the smart...
Technology in banking has moved out of the back office and is now central to all that a bank does. In the digital age, technology enables a good customer experience that is fundamental to banking success. But many banks find themselves hamstrung by the technology that made them successful. Why?

This is at odds with how customers think and behave: they want banking their way. Legacy technology cannot meet the demands of customers who want real-time banking services, anywhere, anytime. So all banks...

Around the UK, alarm is growing from a belief that robots are taking away jobs. This fear is misplaced. From the steam-powered cotton mills of the industrial revolution to the rise of ATMs in the 1970s, there is little evidence to support the theory that mass unemployment arises from introducing robotic processes, because new kinds of jobs always arise. When thinking about robots in business, often it’s the dancing arms of a car production line that spring to mind, or Ocado’s trundling army of shopping boxes patiently building up grocery orders. For financial services, the picture is more mundane: perhaps...
3. Vertical scaling is done by improving the efficiency of each individual transaction, whereas horizontal scaling is achieved through increasing the platform’s overall throughput capacity. In simple terms, general scalability improvements are made through the use of a concept called “layering” — wherein each individual component of a particular system is made to interact with its digital counterparts in some sort of sequential and hierarchical way.  Also, when it comes to blockchains, developers strive to maintain the immutability of their base chain, which in turn allows the scalability layer to leverage the security of the parent chain. An example that...
