Alfa-Bank, part of the international Alfa Group Consortium, enjoys a solid reputation for reliable, high-quality financial services. Alfa-Bank introduced the technically advanced Temenos T24 core banking system to its infrastructure, offering performance and quality improvements of banking services to customers. With the new introduction, the bank encountered several integration difficulties and concerns, which were successfully addressed by WSO2 Application Server and WSO2 ESB, thereby marking the first step of the bank's full SOA implementation plan.

When I was selecting a technology, my primary targets were open-source, less development and more configuration, simple administration. The WSO2 Application Server appeared the easiest and fastest way to expose the Web services just after installation.
