Crossvale implements a Service-Oriented Architecture solution for BBVA Compass that improves operational efficiency and enhances customer service delivery. Such solutions in the banking and financial services industry increase interoperability among applications and leverage the investment legacy systems, by aligning information technology infrastructure with business processes.

We are pleased to have been selected by BBVA Compass," said Jason Sharp - president, Crossvale, Inc. "a major financial institution with the foresight to use SOA to gain a competitive edge for their business.

Crossvale, Inc. a leading provider of integration and automation services, today announced it is implementing a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) solution for BBVA Compass, one of the nation's top 20 banks. The SOA infrastructure allows banks, and other enterprises, to realign the way in which they develop services and integrate applications with their external business systems. SOA helps banks excel in an increasingly challenging industry environment.

SOA is an architectural approach which closely aligns information technology infrastructure with business processes by enabling a better exchange of information among applications. A SOA allows a banking institution to respond more quickly and cost-effectively to changing market conditions, to leverage existing infrastructure thereby reducing future expenditures, and to provide an ideal path to deliver new services that accomplish business goals. Crossvale's approach to delivering a SOA solution goes beyond technology development to focus on governance. SOA governance helps ensure that services built are consumable across all distributed and mainframe platforms.

Crossvale helps its clients to establish policies and ensure these are enforced across the enterprise, so that all new applications are compliant and auditable. "We are pleased to have been selected by BBVA Compass," said Jason Sharp - president, Crossvale, Inc. "a major financial institution with the foresight to use SOA to gain a competitive edge for their business."

The SOA initiative will improve BBVA Compass’ information processes and provide it with an underlying architecture that will allow changes to be implemented more easily. The project encompasses changes to the infrastructure, introduction of new technologies, and the establishment of streamlined personnel groups. Crossvale will participate in all aspects of the implementation, including: design, governance planning, organizational realignment, development, and training.

"This challenging project is an excellent example of how Crossvale works with its customers to deploy technology in a strategic manner to drive fundamental change within an organization," Mr. Sharp added. “A Service-Oriented Architecture implementation creates a consistent and predictable approach to new development while increasing the speed of product introductions. Crossvale's goal in every engagement is to help our clients realize the full value of their systems investment. Our approach ensures that all systems, new and old, on premise and outsourced are integrated properly, so expected cost savings actually happen.”
