“We want to solve one of the most difficult problems in banking computing, which is installation and implementation,” Zack Yaniv, Otoma’s co-founder and CEO said in an interview with Calcalist. “Most software developers do not want to be responsible for the installation of such technology, as an error can cause huge financial damage to banks,” he said.
