Implementing a modular, component-based enterprise solution facilitates integration with a bank's existing technologies. An overall service-oriented-architecture helps banks reduce the risk that can result from manual data entry and out-of-date information, increases management information and review, and avoids the potential disruption to business caused by replacing entire systems.

Core banking solutions is new terminology frequently used in banking circles. The advancement in technology, especially Internet and information technology has led to new ways of doing business in banking. These technologies have cut down time, working simultaneously on different issues and increasing efficiency. The platform where communication technology and information technology are merged to suit core needs of banking is known as core banking solutions. Here, computer software is developed to perform core operations of banking like recording of transactions, profit calculations on loans and deposits, customer records, balance of payments and withdrawal.

This software is installed at different branches of bank and then interconnected by means of communication lines like satellite, internet etc. It allows the user (customers) to operate accounts from any branch if it has installed core banking solutions. This new platform has changed the way banks are working.
