Mission UK: Codebots takes Manchester

by Eban Escott, May 07, 2019

At the beginning of April, I touched down in London, one of the world's largest tech hubs, for the first time since launching a Codebots team in the UK. So far, 2019 has seen a myriad of economic changes in the UK (Brexit anyone?), and amidst the shifts, a great deal of market opportunities.

Over the course of the week, we met with a series of both channel and strategic partners, all of whom had a digital transformation problem or strategy they are currently managing. Whether organisations are already struggling to modernise their legacy systems, or simply don't have the right tools and know-how to begin the process, what is clear is that these systems are not confined to a single industry, nor country.

The IP Expo in Manchester

The theme for everything digital transformation continued straight into IP Expo in Manchester, at which I was granted the opportunity to present not only Codebots to a live audience, but our own continuous modernisation methodology to tackle these legacy systems and software monoliths that exist everywhere, from general retailers to large financial institutions.

London is commonly regarded as the FinTech capital of the world

At the heart of this city lies the open banking movement, providing users with a new network of financial institutions' data. By moving away from centralisation, open banking helps financial service customers to securely share their financial data with other financial institutions. To securely unlock their core data and migrate from outdated monolith software applications, financial institutions are required to engage in significant digital transformation exercises.

Digital transformation - one legacy system at a time

Having gained valuable insight into how Codebots can help rid the UK of outdated legacy systems, we met with some key members in the technology arm of one of Australia's largest banks. With a presence throughout the UK and Europe, we learnt more about some of their unique technology (behind-the-scenes), and discussed a Codebots strategy for enhancement.

We couldn't be more excited to watch Codebots thrive in yet another international market that so desperately needs a fix to the many significant digital transformation problems.
