OpenLegacy debuts in Japan to boost DX for Shimane Bank

Shimane Bank recently chose OpenLegacy to enhance its digital platforms, marking the American firm’s official entry into Japan, after a strategic investment of $20 million from SBI Holdings earlier this year.

A team of local go-to-market experts, delivery consultants and partners have been employed to serve the market.

Shimane Bank is seeking to improve the digital experience of its customers. With OpenLegacy, core banking logic in legacy systems can be quickly extended to the Internet and mobile applications.

A proof of concept was performed successfully in late 2019. Given the positive results, both teams are now in the midst of a full-scale implementation to accelerate the digital transformation of the bank.

“We’re delighted to team up with Shimane Bank to better serve their customers,” said Joseph Wong, general manager for Asia at OpenLegacy.

“Shimane Bank’s customers are expecting to do more in today’s world and we provide the means to achieve this with speed, agility and cost savings,” said Wong. “We look forward to a successful long-term partnership with the bank.”
