A Mobile Banking Solution on the Microsoft Platform - Synapsys’ MBanx

MBanx, a mobile banking solution based on the Microsoft platform was successfully deployed by Synapsys, an IT Services & Solutions company. This was marked by the official launch of ‘MBanker’ doorstep banking service by DFCC Vardhana Bank (DVB), which chose MBanx as the mobile applications platform that would drive its mobile services.

With the use of mobile terminals running MBanx Client Application over GPRS or 3G, DVB’s banking executives will now visit and serve customers in their own environs providing great convenience to the customer, and, at the same time busting queues at bank branches.

Talking of the foundations that MBanx is built upon, “It is important to select the right platforms to build your solutions on and we believe we’ve selected the best”, said Mr. Dinesh Fernandopulle, Chief Executive Officer, Synapsys Ltd. Adding further on strengths of partners he said, “For example, using the Microsoft platform end-to-end helped us to avoid many pitfalls of using disparate platforms thereby significantly cutting-down development cycles and achieving applications performance criteria first time around”.

MBanx in its entirety was implemented on Microsoft platforms. Developed on the .Net framework, the web components run on Windows 2008 Advanced Server Operating System and IIS web server. The database is Microsoft SQL Server 2008. The client applications on handheld devices run on Windows Mobile and were developed on .Net Compact Framework. MS Certificate Services are used to implement SSL/TLS security.

Leveraging on what is already achieved the Synapsys-Microsoft partnership is expected to thrive further in the coming months.
