The Big Bad Bank, is a tier one chartered bank headquartered in the Greater Toronto Area.
The CIO of the consumer lending division has asked your team to help them with the issue of “technology debt” as one of their key credit scoring applications is a 30 year old DOS application. The application works (which is why it has never been replaced), however it is limiting the process of loan applications as it runs overnight in batch and means a 24 hour cycle time between the submission of the customers information and an approved/not-approved response. The bank would like to move to instant loan approvals for its retail customers to compete with the fin-tech startups providing a similar service. It is imperative that as this approval service moves to real-time, there is no interruption or outage to loan approvals, as this is a key service at the bank.
