IT agility – to stay on top of the ever-changing challenges, business needs and regulatory requirements in the world of finance. Advanced IT organisation – to build on a convincing Solaris operating system environment. Enhanced business continuity – to benefit from uninterrupted availability of bank-specific IT business processes.
Implementation of a state-of-the-art core banking system was one of the top priorities of the National Bank of Abu Dhabi (NBAD) when it adopted its strategy for the future. After all, it takes a strong IT infrastructure to achieve the agility required to deal with changes in business requirements as they occur.
Scalable performance, absolute flexibility, maximum availability and reliable business-critical 24/7 operation are all absolutely essential. NBAD recognised the need for improvement in its IT environment and initiated an extensive upgrade project. Partnering with Fujitsu, the bank significantly boosted the performance of its core banking infrastructure. The new configuration is based on PRIMEPOWER systems, Intel-based PRIMERGY servers and SPARC Enterprise servers. This robust state-of-the-art technology platform now gives users maximum agility. And, last but far from least, on-site support is guaranteed.
