Supporting modernisation with accelerated digital solutions

To address the need for modernisation, BBD has developed various solutions that can be utilised across various sectors 

Having worked on many complex modernisation initiatives across the financial services, insurance and public sectors, Andre de Witt, Group Executive and member of the strategic leadership team at BBD, has noticed a trend in customers demanding more intuitive and proactive services

To address this need for intuitive services and modernisation, he and the BBD team have developed various solutions that can be utilised across the various sectors – speeding up development and ensuring scalable and flexible software solutions that solve IT challenges in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible. Drawing on highly skilled software architects, engineers, testers and analysts, and utilising proven methods, we have developed accelerators that work across any business to rapidly deploy solutions. One such accelerators is Vanguard, a flexible solution that optimises processes through business orchestration and automation.

BBD has a verifiable track record solving complex problems and delivering enterprise business solutions, offering a range of services that work for any business.

“Customers almost require us to anticipate their needs before they even articulate them. In fact, sometimes customers may ask for one thing, without realising that they really need another. There’s also a move to a more digital- / application-first approach and omnichannel experience where automation and self-service comes into play to reduce the need for human interactive call centres or branches” explains De Witt; “Thus, we’re seeing a drive to design and build intuitive processes and applications where users are able to use self-services”.

Because many organisations still have various disparate, silo-based back-end or core services, it’s difficult to meet these everchanging customer services demands. Based on our experience in solving complex integration challenges and implementing service capabilities, these accelerators have been developed to fast-track the delivery of solutions tailored around clients’ specific needs.
