    Business Architect Integration

    The Rabobank banking app seamlessly handling customers’ payments requests, always showing customers’ current balances, and latest transactions accurately. Of course, this is typically already the case. But how does this all work under the hood? How can the banking app, which is only a small shackle in a large chain of applications, exchange data with all the other shackles in the chain in order to deliver this functionality? Which principles apply, and which standards are followed in order to achieve this?

    Making a difference

    As Business Architect Integration you are in the centre of all application integration, involved in all strategical and tactical decisions regarding how business functions and applications interact. Rabobank’s applications are hosted in various public clouds and in on-premises data centres.

    You are responsible for:

    • Continuously developing, reshaping and implementing the integration vision and strategy.
    • You are the representative for enterprise-wide integration solutions ranging from APIs to events to file-transfers. These solutions typically cover Rabobank’s multi-cloud eco-systems internationally.
    • Propagating the integration vision and strategy across the Rabobank.
    • Advocating and facilitating the modernization of existing, outdated, integrations.
    • Advocating and facilitating self-sufficiency regarding application integration throughout the organization.
    • Coordinating the work of approximately 5-6 Integration Solution Architects.

    Your technology stack consists of:

    • API Management
    • Events
    • Transformation
    • File-Transfers
    • Messaging

    With each other
    Collaboration is at the heart of everything we do. Our team, Strategy and Architecture, brings talented people together to jointly shape a vision for the architecture of enterprise integration. With you as a Business Architect Integration, the team will consist of 9 diverse colleagues in a variety of roles, including:

    Hein Dekkers, Business Architect and colleague: “As a business architect I frequently have different conversations with vendors. For example, inspiration sessions in order to determine future architecture, architecture sessions in order to map Rabobank architecture and the vendor architecture or RFP sessions in order to select the best vendor for Rabobank.

    Vincent Pijpers, Business Architect and colleague: “Interesting subjects within my scope (both within the Netherlands and internationally) are the interbanking developments in the Netherlands and Europe, the exceptional performance requirements, the continuous optimization of the models and the transformation to cloud solutions.
