NetCOBOL improves the efficiency of mainframe operations at Scandinavisk Data Center

"We are saving double digit figures in annual operating costs so the solution has already paid for itself. Mobile banking has become the most popular form of transaction but the Fujitsu PRIMERGY platform has easily met the rising demand with no extra costs."

Jacob Canto Hallager Executive Director of Sales and Account Management, SDC

SDC used Fujitsu NetCOBOL compiler to migrate 12.1 million lines of code to a new .NET platform, which can scale easily to meet rising demands.

Customer

SDC provides an all-round service for small and medium-sized financial institutions in Scandinavia. Its core business is the development, maintenance, operation and joint purchase of IT solutions for the financial sector. It has a workforce of 780 and its clientele is made up of 120 Danish, Norwegian, Swedish and Faroese financial institutions.

Challenge

SDC was faced with the increasing costs associated with mainframe computing. It wanted to find an alternative environment that would reduce expenditure without compromising functionality or performance. It also wanted to meet rising demands for mobile banking without incurring additional costs.

Solution

SDC used Fujitsu NetCOBOL compiler to migrate 12.1 million lines of code to a new .NET platform, which can scale easily to meet rising demands.

Benefit

  • SDC is now saving double digit figures every year by replacing the mainframe with the Fujitsu solution
  • Ensures high availability to support the 200 million transactions performed per month, including over 130 million mobile requests
  • New approach allows for better performance and more flexibility, allowing SDC to introduce services quickly and easily
