“ The combination of SAP for Banking solutions on IBM Power Systems technology and DB2 offers us all the flexibility and resilience CMBC needs to go further, and deliver even better service. ”
Chun Guang Yuan, IT Manager, China Minsheng Banking Corp., Ltd.
Founded in 1996, CMBC is one of China’s leading retail banks, focusing on small and medium enterprises and on high-end retail customers. The first bank in China to be primarily owned by non-government enterprises, CMBC manages total assets of more than 3.2 trillion, and operates 33 branches and more than 700 banking outlets across the country.
CMBC offers lightning-fast response and 24/7 availability to its customers across all channels, including online banking. As customer numbers grew, the bank struggled to meet its service objectives.
CMBC transformed core banking operations by deploying the SAP for Banking suite of solutions on robust IBM Power Systems servers with IBM DB2, gaining a flexible foundation for meeting continued growth.
Accelerated processing and better management of transaction volumes will enable super-fast service; greater flexibility reduces time-to-market for new banking products and supports rapid growth.
