Finastra Recent Developments
In September 2018, Finastra launched Fusion Essence in the cloud, a fully integrated core and digital solution, localized for the UK Market. Deployed on Azure, Microsoft’s enterprise-ready trusted cloud platform, it is available to all banks, but is particularly suited to ambitious challenger banks, enabling them to come to market with velocity and allowing them to launch personalized offerings first and fast, maintaining a competitive edge.
Fusion Essence in the cloud frees banks from the burden of IT operations with a pay-as-you-go subscription model. Covering all UK core and digital banking requirements, including lending, digitally originated deposits, payments and regulatory reporting, it is fully integrated with third-party providers for credit reference checks as part of AML and KYC processes and regulatory reporting. An accelerated onboarding approach powered by Fusion Essence in the cloud enables banks to launch first and, importantly, to drive fast customer adoption and business growth once live.
In June 2019, Finastra partnered with ceptor, an intelligent automation software company, to offer new reconciliation functionality to its securities market customers.

Finastra Ecosystem, Partners, Resellers and SI
In April 2018, Finastra is bringing its mortgage lending solutions to the cloud via Microsoft Azure. As part of the strategic alliance between the two companies to use Microsoft’s enterprise-ready, trusted cloud platform as a base for a selection of Finastra’s payments and retail banking technology, Finastra’s Fusion MortgagebotLOS product is now available via the Azure cloud. As of today, US clients that access this service will realize streamlined access to their data improved operational control and increased productivity.
By accessing technology remotely via the cloud, financial institutions benefit from a flexible cost structure in which they can access only the resources required, and where system upgrades are rolled out immediately and automatically. Cloud technology also offers enhancements in availability, disaster recovery, environment/process monitoring, mobility, and collaboration.
Finastra already uses the Azure cloud platform to deliver its payment solutions and more business lines will move to the cloud over the next 12 months. The addition of Fusion MortgagebotLOS to the cloud advances Finastra’s commitment to delivering the broadest portfolio of solutions for financial institutions of all sizes, on-premises or in the cloud.
In June 2017, Finastra IBM has reached an agreement to explore how the two companies can help customers transform their banking operations with IBM Cloud and Cognitive technologies. Finastra and IBM plan to bring IBM technology into the Finastra open architecture to enrich the digital retail banking experience and bring new innovations to the market. As part of the collaboration, Finastra intends to run its FusionBanking Essence core and digital solution on IBM Cloud.
The companies also work towards collaborating on both a Financial Crime and a Blockchain-based offering, and IBM plans to support Finastra as it develops retail banking proof of concepts and product demos, including provisioning multiple Watson APIs to infuse cognitive capabilities into its products. The FusionFabric cloud architecture and open APIs from Finastra make it possible for IBM to incorporate its technology and cognitive capabilities directly into the Finastra banking solution. Also, FusionFabric cloud enables banks, Fintechs, consultants, and students to collaborate in an app ecosystem for financial services.
