PRINCETON, N.J. & MAKATI, Philippines--(BUSINESS WIRE)--OpenLegacy, provider of the industry’s most advanced legacy integration solution, today announced the results of its digital modernization project with Security Bank, a leading domestic universal bank in the Philippines. The modernization program, which began in late 2020, reduced time to deployment by one third, with OpenLegacy’s team averaging a complete integration every three days.
A traditional modernization route can take up to one month per API, taxing internal developers and raising costs. With OpenLegacy, Security Bank can offer digital services to market quickly and affordably, driving customer satisfaction, cutting costs, and realizing greater value of its existing mainframe investment.
“We needed to accelerate the digital transformation of our services to stay competitive. OpenLegacy modernized integration points of various mission-critical internal systems quickly to ensure our customers get the modern, digital-first experience they’ve come to expect,” said Ric Torres, Chief Technology Officer at Security Bank Corporation. “Our partnership with leading technology providers such as OpenLegacy, brings us closer to achieving our vision to be the most customer-centric bank in the Philippines.”
“OpenLegacy empowered Security Bank to efficiently build new digital services and generate business-level APIs with the ease of cloud,” said Joseph Wong, General Manager, APAC and Japan at OpenLegacy. “We are excited to continue to help them unlock core system data in a streamlined fashion.”
OpenLegacy offers a cloud-first legacy modernization platform.

Each can be simplified and automated to perfect the process drastically eliminating complexity, time, cost, and risk.
OpenLegacy’s robust modernization platform is designed to address the painful challenges of complexity, unique skills, and mission-critical stability that core legacy systems (such as mainframe) present in the cloud journey.
