A top 25 global bank’s customers were experiencing delays and service outages when trying to send payments. This hub was a great addition to the bank’s payment infrastructure, as all payments would migrate to eventually go through one central place. However, the payments hub started having latency issues during peak usage time. Addressing these performance issues and mitigating future occurrences were critical.
