ABN AMRO's CTO, Dirk Sibiet, and the CCO of Private Banking, Hans-Peter Borgh, discuss how virtualising the end-user environment boosts security & compliance, significantly reduces costs, and opens up new opportunities for Relationship Managers to visit ABN AMRO Private Bank customers anywhere, anytime.

"Because at ABN AMRO Private Banking we have a lot of relationship managers who are private bankers and who meet their clients outside the offices. We will now be using virtual desktops to make our client conversations so much more relevant, by allowing our bankers, when they are on the road, to access the information they need and the tools they need to help our clients understand their [own] financial situation and financial opportunities better."

Central Clearing House and Depository (Budapest) Ltd. (KELER ZRT.)

 

The clearing house started a project in 2009 with the title KIÚT (KELER Infrastructure Redesign) with the goals of consolidating the IT environment, increasing its availability and flexibility, achieving supplier-independence and reducing the total cost of ownership (TCO). According to its business mission and vision, KELER is intending to provide continuous competitive and client-focused services, active utilisation of business opportunities, flexible management of changes and effective operations. The higher reliability, flexibility achieved through the VMware-based virtualisation of the server environment, the higher efficiency of testing and easier monitoring, accountable working operations are all indispensable for achieving these goals and putting the company philosophy into practice. For example, this server environment allowed KELER to provide services available through the web (e.g. online ISIN code issuance), but also enables the planned introduction of the document management system and the switchover to using e-accounts.

“The reliable working operation called forth by the VMware-based virtualisation of our server environment is now simply indispensable in achieving our business goals set out in our enterprise strategy."

— András Katkó, IT Director, KELER ZRT.
