Pete Gillard, CTO for retail banking at Misys Banking Systems, which is using Oracle BPEL Process Manager, stated, “A bank's core banking system is mission critical. Oracle BPEL Process Manager, a component of the Oracle SOA Suite, enables us to create a solution that combines the robustness of our enterprise-class back-office system with the flexibility that BPEL provides. This allows our customers to meet the increasing demands of regulatory compliance and empowers banks to differentiate themselves in the market through support for changing processes and policies."
