Banco de Crédito del Peru
Headquartered in Lima, Banco de Crédito del Peru (BCP) is the largest private bank in Peru. With 320 branches across the country as well as offices in Panama, Miami and Bolivia, BCP employs 15,000 people and boasts annual profits of 450 million US dollars. BCP was founded 125 years ago and today offers a range of retail banking products and services including bank accounts, insurance policies and mutual funds.
A range of isolated and outdated back-office applications were in place at Banco de Crédito del Peru (BCP), making it difficult to support these systems efficiently or effectively. Ensuring software licenses were up to date was a further challenge. Without a single repository for business information, reliable and accurate reporting was almost impossible, making it difficult for key decision makers to access the information they needed. IT staff were often called upon to generate these reports manually – a time-consuming and error-prone approach.
Banco de Crédito del Peru implemented SAP ERP, SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse, SAP NetWeaver Portal, SAP Solution Manager and SAP BusinessObjects Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC).These applications are running on IBM BladeCenter JS43, IBM Power 595 and IBM Power 570 servers, all running the IBM AIX operating system landscape. The company worked with IBM Software Services for Information Management and IBM Business Partner SYNOPSIS to deploy IBM DB2 9 for Linux, Unix and Windows.
Combining IBM DB2 and SAP NetWeaver Business Warehouse technology has given Banco de Crédito del Peru comprehensive enterprise management capabilities. The powerful and robust IBM BladeCenter and Power Systems servers provide the ideal platform, keeping software running optimally with minimal management overhead. Key decision makers at the company can use real-time reporting data to keep track of company performance and capitalize on opportunities immediately, boosting responsiveness and agility. Replacing the Oracle database with IBM DB2 is estimated to cut IT data management costs by half.
