In our payment digital transformation journey ahead, all of DBS Lifestyle apps are adopting common services, platforms, architectural principles, and design patterns. DBS PayLah! tech team intend to build loosely coupled but tightly aligned components that are built expecting to be reused while anticipating change. The common set of parameters and tools for software development provides a consistent approach to security, maintainability and reliability.
