HCL's Solution Framework for SOA in Payments

HCL’s framework for implementing SOA in a business-critical payments environment involves a single payment architecture that allows banks to identify duplication and to define a step-by-step migration to common utilities based on open standards. This pragmatic approach splits each payment process or silo into three elements of functionality: origination, order management, and payment execution. Separating these three layers makes it possible to isolate the diverse set of origination channels (e-mail, fax, EDI, internet, phone, etc.) from the payment execution and processing systems.

A crucial component is the ESB based on an SOA. By using a service-oriented approach, we can decouple and reuse existing application and middleware components in an unobtrusive way, thus providing a low-risk transition to the new architecture. HCL complements this evolutionary approach with a strong implementation methodology that focuses on customer service and payment system resilience.
