“ The combination of Finacle and IBM gives us the functionality we want on a high-performance platform that is robust and resilient enough to handle the bank’s requirements moving forward. ”
Dennis Bancod, senior executive vice president and head for IT and operations, Rizal Commercial Banking Corp.
Rizal Commercial Banking Corp.
Rizal Commercial Banking Corp. (RCBC), headquartered in Makati City, the Philippines, was established in 1960. The bank provides a range of banking and financial products and services for commercial and retail customers. It is currently the fourth-largest private domestic bank in the Philippines by assets and has approximately 420 branches and 5,000 employees nationwide.
RCBC needed an IT infrastructure to support a core-banking system, called Finacle, from IBM Business Partner Infosys Ltd. that would help the bank improve efficiency, launch products faster and attain 10 million customers.
An IBM® z10™ Enterprise Class platform and a range of IBM middleware products provide scalability, security and consistent performance at the high levels required by Infosys and RCBC.
RCBC reduced new product launch times by 50 percent and increased its readiness to effectively compete in the marketplace, moving two to three years ahead of its competition.
