Overview

Credit Unions System for Brazil (Sicoob) is the largest credit union system in Brazil, offering banking and credit services to more than 2.5 million people. Sicoob’s customers are also its owners, so the financial returns benefit their communities rather than enriching shareholders.

Business need
Growing fast, Brazilian credit union system Sicoob must cope with extra transactions at short notice. How could it combat the increased IT complexity that resulted without impacting service quality?

Solution
Sicoob chose Linux on IBM® z Systems™ as its strategic platform, working closely with IBM to migrate and consolidate member databases to IBM® DB2® LUW with BLU Acceleration® on the mainframe.

Benefits
Enabling ongoing performance optimization, the solution supports reliable, high-quality services for greater customer satisfaction. The ability to limitlessly scale out removes barriers to growth.
