Integration Middleware for Bank business Services
IMBS is a "middleware" for bank specific services. It represents a general and und independent abstraction layer above an existing back-end host system (Legacy Systems).
IMBS implements a consistent business logic as a system of business objects and procedures. Through this process the structure and the size of the front-end applications can be optimized considerably (thin-clients versus fat-clients). The unified, client-oriented interface creates the foundation for web-based, thin front-end applications.
