Scalable Business Architecture: Building MVPs with the IPO in Mind

22 Nov 2023

In recent years, remarkable progress has been made in the "science" of building new ventures. Lean Startup has revolutionized the product space, while DevOps and Microservices emphasize collaboration and integration between development and operational teams. However, these approaches leave certain questions unanswered.


Working closely together and sharing workflows is essential, but bridging the gap between individuals who speak different languages and see the world in different ways remains a challenge. Achieving a common understanding of reality, clarifying what needs to be built, and understanding why it needs to be built is crucial.


Questions arise such as: How do we handle long-running processes like onboarding and perpetual KYC, which are increasingly common in the financial services industry? How can we help engineering teams grasp the nuances between complex financial product offerings? How can we ensure regulatory compliance is integrated into everything we do from the outset?


Drawing from years of experience in building digital banks, financial services infrastructure, and fintechs, Scalable Business Architecture as the missing link in the modern architecture stack. This approach ensures solid alignment between front office, operations, and engineering.

Scalable Business Architecture combines techniques from Event Storming, Domain Modeling, and Process Orchestration. Supported by our own set of financial services-ready DevOps pipelines, reusable microservices patterns, and open-source banking components (including our flexible ledger), this approach empowers fintechs and corporates to build new ventures and products the right way from the start. With minimal development overheads, companies can avoid compromises in products or features, ensuring a scalable and efficient future.
