Korala is the go to guy for any help that banks need to keep things running

On April 8, a banking crisis looms which will go largely unnoticed by the majority of the population. That is the day when Microsoft will stop supporting its popular Windows XP operating system thereby putting hundreds of thousands of ATMs around the world which run on the software at risk. As the banking world gears up for this day, it is looking at one man living in Edinburgh for guidance. He is Aravinda Korala, the founder CEO of Korala Associates Ltd (KAL), the world’s leading ATM software provider that provides solutions for bank ATMs, self-service kiosks, and bank branch networks. Korala has a BSc in Electronic Engineering from the King’s College, London. He also has a master’s and a PhD in Artificial Engineering from the University of Edinburgh. After short stints at PA Technology & Coopers and at Lybrand, Korala founded KAL in 1989 and has been acting as its CEO for the last 20-odd years. Today, widely recognised as the leading multivendor ATM software provider, KAL offers software solutions for multinational banks like the Citibank and has offices all over the world. KAL is also famous for being the first ATM software vendor to support Windows 8 one week after its release. Today, Korala is the go to guy for any help that multinational banks need to keep things running. And they would need all that help on April 8.
