Cloud Migration Powers Innovation and Efficiency for Global Bank

Client

The client is one of the world’s largest banking and financial services organizations, serving approximately 38 million customers worldwide. Their aim is to be acknowledged as the world’s leading and most respected international bank.

The Challenge

The bank had previously used a traditional on-premise approach to application hosting. However, this was proving expensive and cumbersome. It wanted to find a more flexible, leaner way of doing business without compromising security.  It also wanted to speed up time-to-market for new services and enable global collaboration and experimentation. Thus, it is in the process of rolling out a comprehensive digital transformation initiative that will make it more efficient, agile, and cost-effective through the adoption of cloud services and technologies. 

The Solution

Ensono provided a team of twelve consultants, split evenly between senior level DevOps specialists and AWS solution architects. The goal was to establish the foundations for an operating model that could scale up and out across multiple cloud platforms around the world. The complexity of adapting cloud controls for financial services in different global markets made the project even more challenging.

Over the course of 12 months, Ensono worked to create a framework that would enable this client to build new applications, such as next-generation mobile applications, quickly and securely while encouraging global collaboration. It would also facilitate the transformation of some existing applications and workloads. The ultimate objective was to provide the client with the tools and knowledge it needed to confidently handle the process internally.

The Benefits

The new AWS platform will speed up time-to-market for new applications and services at lower costs than the traditional on-premise model. By accelerating cloud adoption, the company will be able to on-board ten times as many applications than it currently can.
