The Genesis buy-to-build approach for IT transformation is seeing more client interest in 2022, which is fueling growth. With buy-to-build, organisations quicken the speed of IT transformation since the Genesis platform makes it simpler and faster to develop new applications, as well as improve or replace legacy systems.

Financial services firms use Genesis across the software value chain to automate spreadsheet processes, enhance existing systems, replace legacy technology, and build new, robust first-time applications. This helps them to prioritise digital transformation as they look to stand out from the competition, innovate, lower the cost and complexity of current systems, and react quickly to shifting regulations, says the company.

Genesis has global offices in New York (HQ), Miami, London, São Paulo, and Dublin, Ireland.
