The Challenge

CAB (Cairo Amman Bank) understands the importance of having a trusted partner that can provide the best resilient, scalable technology to enable them to deliver the best service and latest innovations to their customers. 

The KPMG report was released in 2016, highlighting that banks needed to re-evaluate the way in which they approach changes and challenges in their customer and business strategies. In turn, this has prompted the industry to think how they can stay ahead long term. Simultaneously, banks face other challenges such as cyber security and regulatory scrutiny, and from an IT perspective this requires an infrastructure that can securely manage high volumes of sensitive data.

CABS solution was based on an older infrastructure where the database repository used for core banking was based on a solution that used Flat files. In commercial and service challenges, this meant that there were performance issues at peak times and an inability to quickly and efficiently adapt to the needs of their end customers.

The Solution

  • IBM Power Systems P880 - supreme performance to manage big data workloads

  • IBM DB2 - extreme flexibility and scalability to manage core banking system
