“ We expect the combined SAP and IBM solution to significantly improve the time-to-market, development and design of our financial products and services, with optimized operations that enhance rapidity and flexibility for our various customers, giving Banco Galicia new opportunities to compete in the modern banking industry. ”
Diego Revello, ITC Manager, Banco Galicia
Founded in 1905, Banco Galicia is headquartered in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and employs more than 5,000 people. Listed on the Buenos Aires Stock Exchange, Banco Galicia is one of the country’s top three private banks.
Banco Galicia wanted to improve the time-to-market for new financial products and services, but its legacy IT applications and systems were unable to support the rapid changes required.
The bank worked to transform its business processes by introducing SAP for Banking solutions, running on an IBM zEnterprise EC12 (zEC12) mainframe server, with storage provided by IBM System Storage DS8800 devices.
With this infrastructure, Banco Galicia is able to develop and launch new banking and financial products much faster, helping the bank to win new customers from private and corporate banks and improve its competitiveness.
