Banca Carige


Deployment country


Founded in Genoa in 1483, Banca Carige Group (Banca Carige) has grown to become one of the largest banks in Italy. Employing almost 6,000 people across more than 650 branches, the company serves 1.2 million banking customers and generates gross operating income of more than EUR800 million.

Business need
To thrive despite intense competition, Banca Carige wanted to develop a customer-centric approach to service delivery, but it first needed to gain a deeper understanding of customer needs and desires.

Banca Carige built an analytics environment and a new mobile banking service using IBM software on IBM® zEnterprise® EC12 mainframes, which provide round-the-clock availability and high security.

Launching new services meets changing customer demands, while the proven underlying technology accelerates deployment and reduces risk; consolidating to a single platform cuts cost and complexity.
