Banks to Experience More Software Glitches This Year

The increasing complexity of banking software is resulting in a number of serious software faults. According to Lev Lesokhin, strategy chief at New York-based software analysis firm Cast, the main problem is that while developers are good at building new functions, they are bad at ensuring nothing goes wrong when new software is added to the old.

In only the last year, these types of faults have resulted in major hiccups for companies such as Paypal, Knight Capital, Bats Global Markets and Ulster Bank.

“Modern computer systems are so complicated you would need to perform more tests than there are stars in the sky to be 100% sure there were no problems in the system,” explains Lev Lesokhin. “This means no single person, or even group of people, can ever fully understand the structure under the key business transactions in an enterprise. Testing alone is no longer a viable option to ensure dependable systems.”
