Modeling for a Dynamic Financial Services Business Environment

· Short Talk

Wednesday, 10:10, 10 minutes | Ballroom GHAB


for a financial software solutions provider is answering the question: How do I build my software so that it can satisfy the requirements of any financial institution, offering any financial product, anywhere in the world? In order to have a single solution which can adapt to variations from institution to institution and from product to product, software developers need to reach beyond traditional statically coded implementations. In order to fulfill this mission, you need to employ adaptive model driven business and UI frameworks as the foundation of your application architecture. In this short talk, we will share our experience in developing model driven business and UI frameworks based on EMF, GMF and IBM’s Insurance Application Architecture (IAA) technology to yield a foundation for highly adaptive new business acquisition and customer support systems. We will outline the roles that EMF and GMF play with respect to this architecture and briefly summarize how industry standard reference models (such as the ones included in IAA) are highly complementary to the modeling based approach to software development.

With 14 years of software development experience, John is currently part of a team of S1 developers which are responsible for defining and developing application architecture. In his 6 year tenure with S1 Corporation, John's efforts have centered around the application of adaptive, model driven frameworks to S1's financial services software. John is currently leading an initiative to develop EMF/GMF-based modeling tools for use in authoring the business and user interface models.

Tony Salvo is a 25-year professional of the computer industry. He is currently Director of Architecture at S1 Corporation for the Insurance and Financial Services division. He has focused on model-driven architecture, adaptive systems, and data-driven user interface for which he has a patent pending.
