Nucleus Software has unveiled a revolutionary approach in software development. The company is integrating Acceptance Test-Driven Development (ATDD) into its operations, advancing towards continuous integration and continuous delivery (CICD). This strategic decision mirrors Lean manufacturing principles, tailored for the banking technology domain.
This pivotal change in software development methods is expected to shrink the release cycle duration by 40%, aligning software solutions more closely with user needs. Nucleus Software, a pioneer in the Fintech space in India, is implementing this strategy to future-proof its flagship products, FinnOne Neo™ and FinnAxia™, setting new benchmarks in software development and implementation.
The adoption of CICD and ATDD is set to benefit financial institutions in various ways:
Efficient Testing: This approach will reduce time and costs by eliminating manual regression testing, enabling quicker and more efficient deployment of updates.
Risk Mitigation: It aims to reduce production risks and enhance project lifecycle stability and reliability.
Enhanced Collaboration: The methodology fosters improved communication between teams and aligns software development with customer expectations. It also boosts collaboration in defining acceptance criteria for ATDD.
Implementing these methodologies will enable a quicker value realisation for customers, shorten release times, and embody the ‘Lean-Flow’ principle through continuous integration.
Vishnu R. Dusad, MD and Co-Founder of Nucleus Software, highlighted the significance of this strategic shift, stating that CICD and ATDD are more than methodologies; they represent a proactive approach to delivering seamless experiences. The company’s commitment to continuous learning, as seen in their companywide tech initiative ‘Power of Flow’ last year, further solidifies their position as a fintech innovator. After six months of application across large-scale teams, the company is poised to redefine software development in the financial technology sector.
Nucleus Software’s unwavering focus on customer demands and the user-centric nature of Lean IT ensures a consistent and tailored customer experience. Their innovative CICD and ATDD initiative, part of the ‘Power of Flow’ project, is a response to the dynamic needs of the fintech and financial services industries. Nucleus Software, by adopting these advancements, has positioned itself as a frontrunner in transforming financial services and setting new quality benchmarks in the market.
Looking ahead, Nucleus Software aims to enhance lending technology efficiency by 50% over the next 18 months, reinforcing its solutions’ robustness and adaptability. The company’s dedication to continuous improvement cements its role as a significant player in the rapidly evolving fintech landscape.
