A modern bank needs several attributes for successfully surviving in the market place. Two key attributes are that it flexibly reacts to change, and is capable of innovation. Much of a modern bank's processes and organizational structures are reflected in software. Therefore, a bank's IT is a key player in guaranteeing these attributes. In this position paper, I discuss how maintaining these attributes influences the definition and introduction of new banking products, and how I believe that IT can improve its support through the use of dynamic object models.
