The Benefits Of Serverless for The Banking and Financial Services industry

The financial services industry, like many industries, is currently undergoing a radical shift. In addition to the change to all-digital transactions, customers have come to expect comprehensive services that are able to meet their needs when, where and how they want them. In order to keep up with rapidly changing customer demands and remain compliant with industry regulations, financial services organizations must have the right IT infrastructure and processes in place.

And, as cloud-native—and more specifically, Kubernetes-native—development techniques continue to become the norm, the way developers at financial institutions work must also change, to a cloud-first approach. More and more, implementing a serverless architecture is what makes sense for financial organizations as they continue to transform their focus more on customer demands than IT infrastructure.

Developers working in banking and financial services can help achieve the goals of controlling operational costs, growing the ecosystem and adhering to regulatory standards, which require automation and secure, distributed systems. Let’s look at how the serverless platform can help.

What the serverless platform means for developers

To control costs and adhere to regulatory standards, a smart, more secure and distributed system that is based on a reliable ledger of transactions must be in place. Ideally, this is automated to reduce human error and mitigate the possibility of fraud.

Fintech startups have shaken traditional financial services organizations, and have forced new growth in the ecosystem and partnerships in order to be successful. A transparent system, aided by open source, can help grow the ecosystem.

Serverless is a cloud computing model that acts as a deployment platform. It lets developers focus on the code without worrying about the underlying infrastructure, by automatically scaling based on demand and then being able to scale back to zero while not in use. For developers, serverless mitigates the need for extensive architecture knowledge and responsibilities like management, provisioning, maintenance and, above all, scaling. These considerations allow developers to focus on, well, developing.

Developers in financial services organizations continue to embrace an open hybrid cloud development model, and they do so through the adoption of the Kubernetes platform for the cloud. This has made resource allocation for developers more streamlined and has also flattened the learning curve for first-time users. The combination of Kubernetes and serverless is also flexible and gives developers more options for their workloads. In fact, for mission-critical industries such as financial services, serverless is the next logical step, and can also help the evolution of high-performance cloud computing.

Overcoming Common Serverless Challenges with Mainframe CICS Programs

By this point most enterprises, including those running on legacy infrastructures, are familiar with the benefits of serverless computing:

  • Greater scalability
  • Faster development
  • More efficient deployment
  • Lower cost

The benefits of agility and cost reduction are especially relevant in the current macroeconomic environment when customer behavior is changing, end-user needs are difficult to predict, and development teams are under pressure to do more with less.

So serverless is a no-brainer, right?

Not exactly. Serverless might be relatively painless for a new generation of cloud-native software companies that grew up in a world of APIs and microservices, but it creates headaches for the many organizations that still rely heavily on legacy infrastructure.

In particular, enterprises running mainframe CICS programs are likely to encounter frustrating stumbling blocks on the path to launching Functions as a Service (FaaS). This population includes global enterprises that depend on CICS applications to effectively manage high-volume transactional processing requirements – particularly in the banking, financial services, and insurance industries.

These organizations stand to achieve time and cost savings through a modern approach to managing legacy infrastructure, as opposed to launching serverless applications on a brittle foundation. Here are three of the biggest obstacles they face and how to overcome them.

Challenge #1

Middleware that introduces complexity, technical debt, and latency. Many organizations looking to integrate CICS applications into a microservices or serverless architecture rely on middleware (e.g., an ESB or SOA) to access data from the underlying applications. This strategy introduces significant runtime performance challenges and creates what one bank’s chief architect referred to as a “lasagna architecture,” making DevOps impossible.

Serverless Plugin for Microservice Code Management and Deployment

Serverless M

Serverless M (or Serverless Modular) is a plugin for the serverless framework. This plugins helps you in managing multiple serverless projects with a single serverless.yml file. This plugin gives you a super charged CLI options that you can use to create new features, build them in a single file and deploy them all in parallel


Currently this plugin is tested for the below stack only

  • AWS
  • NodeJS λ
  • Rest API (You can use other events as well)


Make sure you have the serverless CLI installed

# Install serverless globally
$ npm install serverless -g

Getting Started

To start the serverless modular project locally you can either start with es5 or es6 templates or add it as a plugin

ES6 Template install

# Step 1. Download the template
$ sls create --template-url --path myModularService

# Step 2. Change directory
$ cd myModularService

# Step 3. Create a package.json file
$ npm init

# Step 3. Install dependencies
$ npm i serverless-modular serverless-webpack webpack --save-dev

ES5 Template install

# Step 1. Download the template
$ sls create --template-url --path myModularService

# Step 2. Change directory
$ cd myModularService

# Step 3. Create a package.json file
$ npm init

# Step 3. Install dependencies
$ npm i serverless-modular --save-dev

If you dont want to use the templates above you can just add in your existing project

Adding it as plugin

  - serverless-modular

Now you are all done to start building your serverless modular functions

API Reference

The serverless CLI can be accessed by

# Serverless Modular CLI
$ serverless modular

# shorthand
$ sls m

Serverless Modular CLI is based on 4 main commands

  • sls m init
  • sls m feature
  • sls m function
  • sls m build
  • sls m deploy

init command

sls m init

The serverless init command helps in creating a basic .gitignore that is useful for serverless modular.

The basic .gitignore for serverless modular looks like this


#sm main functions

#serverless file generated by build

#main serverless directories generated for sls deploy

#feature serverless directories generated sls deploy

#serverless logs file generated for main sls deploy

#serverless logs file generated for feature sls deploy

#Webpack config copied in each feature

Examples (function Command)

Creating a basic function

# Creating a cloak function for jedi feature
$ sls m function -n cloak -f jedi

Creating a basic function with different path and method

# Creating a cloak function for jedi feature with custom path and HTTP method
$ sls m function -n cloak -f jedi -p powers -m POST

build command

The build command helps in building the project for local or global scope

options (build Command)

This command comes with four options

--scope: Specify the scope of the build, use this with "--feature" tag
