Architected from its inception to be secure, modular and highly scalable, the eICBA Banking System incorporates an innovative Enterprise Application Infrastructure component that makes it ready for future integration with external systems, business partners and customers. This advanced technology infrastructure, in addition to the 24x7 operations capabilities, multi-channel, multi-country and multi-currency implementation options, and world-class business functionality provides financial institutions a competitive advantage in an ever-changing global marketplace.
eICBA Banking System’s commitment to open standards and systems means the solution remains independent and not locked-in to any particular vendor technology. This feature, together with the support for an extensive range of technology platforms, gives banks the freedom to choose the best vendor or environment for their implementation based on factors such as cost, performance and support.
In its present version 9.6, eICBA Banking System supports an extensive range of technology platforms including Oracle Database 11gR2, Oracle Solaris 11, Oracle WebLogic Server 11g R1 and Oracle Linux 5.5.
As eICBA components are built on a Java EE framework, there is added advantage of platform independence that makes eICBA a truly open system. For instance, in any given deployment the presentation UI could run on either Windows or Linux OS, business components could be contained in either IBM Websphere AS or JBoss AS and database objects could reside in Oracle or DB2.
To cater for wider connectivity that is increasingly important for banking institutions in today’s competitive landscape, the eICBA Banking System provides increased flexibility by leveraging on the Enterprise Architecture Interface with multiple connectivity standards. The interface, a high level architecture that is layered on top of the application architecture and platform architectures, serves to improve integration and enhance service monitoring, and thereby reduce the risk of integration with external systems.

Scalability, Availability & Performance
eICBA Banking System is designed for performance and reliability. With its light-weight Web-based front-end and efficient code execution on the most widely used application servers in the industry, eICBA Banking System delivered unrivalled performance. The eICBA Banking System has also built to scale easily from the smallest to the largest of banks merely by adding more servers to the cluster-ready architecture as volumes or number of branches expand, thereby improving performance and availability.
With a technological superior engine, the eICBA Banking System has demonstrated unsurpassed performance in benchmarking exercises performed on even modest mid-range servers. Among other things, these benchmark exercises have demonstrated that system is capable of end-of-day processing duration of less than 2 hours for 20 million accounts and 10.4 million daily transactions - a strong testament to eICBA Banking System's speed and scalability.
