The Game of Telephone: Bridging the Gap Between Disparate Systems

Posted by Lee Farabaugh on Nov 21, 2020 11:15:26 AM

When I was a kid, “Telephone” was one of my favorite games to play.

If you’ve never played, here’s how it works: The first person in the game is given a message and is instructed to pass it on by whispering it in the ear of the next player, who then whispers it in the ear of the player after them, and so on. When the message reaches the final player, they announce it out loud, and the results are often hilariously, nonsensically different from what the initial player started with.

I’m sure there’s a metaphor in there about the dangers of gossip or why it’s important to get your information right from the source. But what strikes me today in my current career is how easy it is for things to break down in translation from one platform to another.

Top 5 Use Cases for APIs in Fintech

Posted by Lee Farabaugh on Oct 23, 2020 2:11:03 PM

The other day, I was having tea with a mentor of mine who is a few years from retirement. She and her husband stumbled upon a little patch of heaven about an hour away from the city.

It’s a 100-year-old refurbished farmhouse, surrounded by 80+ acres of well-maintained pasture and  picturesque rolling hills. As if that wasn’t perfect enough, she can relax from their wraparound porch overlooking a tranquil, two-acre pond — the ideal place to relax and unwind. So of course, they bought it.

It’s a dream come true for my mentor, and I was excited for her. I had to know her secret to finding this jewel. Naturally, the next question out of my mouth was, "How in the world did you find such a stunning place in a perfect location?"

That is when the dreaminess of the story broke down.

Right-Size Your Implementation

Posted by Lee Farabaugh on Oct 5, 2020 2:17:15 PM

I sat across the table from my friend and sipped my tea as she described her weekend. Her new business school class had put together an outing to get to know each other, and they decided on playing a game outside at a local park. Someone offered up the idea to play football, which everyone heartedly agreed would be lots of fun.

What they didn’t realize was that the class included a number of students from outside the US, and on the day of the game, several of her classmates showed up to the field with soccer balls, wearing cleats! Needless to say, that was quite a surprise to the ones who showed up with oblong brown footballs and even a few helmets. They all got a good laugh when they realized what had happened, and had an enjoyable afternoon learning new skills.

The business school meet-up may have ended well, but listening to her tale, it was hard for me not to notice the similarities between the football game and situations we see as providers of implementation services.

Growth through connectivity

Posted by Tatum Utley on Mar 3, 2020 7:45:00 AM

Can you imagine life if the lights and appliances in your house weren't connected to the power grid? What if each morning when you woke up, you had to find a power source for each light, connect it, and then turn it on? In a sense, that's what happens every day with critical functions in the financial technology industry. But it doesn't have to be that way.
