Deployment country


Founded in 1865, Banca Popolare di Milano (BPM) is one of Italy’s oldest cooperative banks, with a strong presence in northern Italy. BPM employs approximately 9,000 people who provide some 1.3 million customers with a range of retail, investment and private banking services, through a network of 768 branches and an online banking service called WeBank.

Business need
Banca Popolare di Milano (BPM) manages huge volumes of financial transactions daily, and must process this workload quickly and reliably – or risk poor client satisfaction and loss of business.

To improve control over rising workload volumes, BPM deployed IBM® Tivoli® Workload Scheduler for z/OS®, gaining easy management for mainframe and distributed environments in a single solution.

Automated workload processing and real-time error resolution will help BPM manage a greater volume of production workload more efficiently and accurately, ensuring a high quality of service to clients.
