PlusTI embarked on a cloud-native project to take advantage of the benefits of the cloud, provide more deployment alternatives for its customers and explore new innovative use cases for its technology.

About the customer
With more than 20 years as a strategic ally in the building of a more secure financial world, PlusTI is a pioneer in solutions for transactional monitoring for fraud detection using machine learning.

Additionally, PlusTI is a world leader in solutions for fraud prevention, anti-money laundering and terrorism financing. PlusTI's solutions are found deployed in hundreds of financial institutions across the world.
As a part of the continuous innovation roadmap for their platform and the opportunity to work with new types of customers such as "born in the cloud" fintechs and other types of non-financial customers, PlusTI's leadership team decided to reframe their platform, adopting best practices around cloud-native architecture. Modern cloud services were leveraged such as containers / kubernetes, managed database services, DevOps practices and embedded security.
- Reframe the technology platform architecture to maximize the benefits of running in the cloud from the perspectives of resilience, agility and scalability.
- Enable easy integration with diverse transactional systems that their customers run.
- Strict compliance with security and data protection policies for the financial sector in several countries.
Due to the fact that PlusTI already works with diverse financial institutions with regional and global operations, it was a key requirement that the new architecture run natively on AWS, the global cloud platform leader. Many PlusTI customers already run their critical workloads on AWS and prefer to work with vendors with experience and knowledge of AWS.
