Blueprint and Storyteller help organizations in the banking industry collaborate across the enterprise to manage risk, improve quality, and reduce rework, while getting their products to market faster than ever.

  • Achieve, Maintain, and Prove Compliance

    When building solutions, banks need to comply with a dizzying amount of regulatory, compliance and audit considerations. 70% of banks are expecting regulators to publish even more regulatory information in the coming years. Compliance with regulations such as Dodd-Frank, MiFid and PCI, as well as best practices ensures quality, reduces risk, and prevents the costly consequences of non-compliance. Blueprint solutions help you achieve it and maintain it as requirements change. Detailed traceability and reporting capabilities provide robust support for audits – even down to a very detailed level – so you can prove compliance when needed.

  • Transition to Agile

    Most banks that attempt Agile transition get stuck in a hybrid mode somewhere along the way. They typically start with IT, by organizing development into Scrum teams and breaking projects into 2-way sprints. However, banks have a difficult time getting the Business to adopt Agile practices. Through the auto-generation of high quality user stories, Blueprint’s Storyteller ensures Business and IT alignment and helps to accelerate Agile transition.

  • Management Visibility & Reporting

    Managers of projects often lament they are 'flying blind' when it comes to managing projects on a global-scale. Blueprint's management reporting provides overall project visibility through a rich set of reports and dashboards delivering all the information senior leaders need to ensure that they can take a proactive approach to managing projects. Reporting is available not just for individual projects, but across a full portfolio, regardless of the types of processes being used.

  • Collaborate

    Our solutions help diverse groups of business and IT stakeholders around the globe collaborate to drive consensus and resolution as they innovate on large financial services initiatives. Discussions and comments are saved in a shared, centralized repository, so the organization can always reference why important decisions were made.

No matter the size, scope or breadth of your banking organization, Blueprint’s enterprise-ready application lifecycle management platform boosts the success of large IT initiatives, reduces risk, and ensures compliance with these key, strategic features and solutions.

Content Accelerators
