The IT department the responsibility of ensuring data security, putting in place systems architecture and infra to support business needs, managing business-critical applications, integration of internal systems with those of banks, regulators and other external systems. It requires insight into fin-techs and tech giants entering financial services and enable the client to build an ecosystem to be at par with the new age competitors. From a profitability standpoint, the department has to consistently track cost vs utility metrics for all technology solutions deployed and ensure a healthy return on investment.

Job Context
This is a Techno functional role. Thus, a deep understanding of the customer requirements is required along with application of various technologies for the business need.
The primary focus is providing a solution that is scalable, robust and secure because it involves critical financial data of the customer. The architect needs to work closely with Internal Teams and External Vendors making sure that Integrations are delivered on time.
• Implemented WSO2 API Gateway, a robust and secure platform to host internal and external services for integration. This brought in a system that acts as a single entry point or interface for all interactions between core systems and third party channels. This has improved the security access of internal core systems and has helped restrict access to external integrators. It also led to
Around 150+ services have been hosted on this gateway and helped in seamless and smooth transition of implementation to post production support team.
Consolidation of servers used by multiple teams for the same functionality
API-fication of 50+ commonly used services
Seamless and smooth transition of implementation to post production support team
• Work closely with business team and help design innovative products to give unsecured lending business (consumer as well as business lending) an edge over its competitors
• Make sure that all Vendors on boarded have an InfoSec clearance and their Services have cleared Security parameters defined at the Organization level
• Consistent follow up with relevant stakeholders to ensure that all issues are anticipated and addressed on time; identify risks during integrations and their resolution with minimum cost and efforts
• Did more than 50+ API hosting’s on API Gateway. Maintaining and Publishing APIs / Web-services document that can be referred later for various internal and external integrations
• Worked and Implemented WSO2 API Gateway, earlier Internal teams had different servers hosting same services which were not able to handle API surge and failed, API Gateway eliminated the servers reducing the license cost as well as creating a single entry point for all vendor applications thus increasing the API manageability, as well as features such as metering and throttling and OAuth 2.0 Token implementation provided security to APIs from DOS (Denial of Services) attack.
• Integration with 3rd party service providers like NSDL, CIBIL, Perfios, Probe42 etc for Credit checks, PAN Validation, KYC validation, company records with internal core systems like loan origination and loan management systems led to automating many tedious and manual process making them straight through, reducing processing time to approximately 35% and improving customer experience
• Documenting process flow diagrams, architecture diagrams of all legacy applications and systems documenting in the form of flow charts, architecture and deployment diagrams which in future helps in getting a clear understanding of various integrations done in each system and can be used as a base for migrating to new systems and technology with ease.
