Data migration from Hong Kong and Singapore for a Swiss bank.

A Swiss bank expects a lot from the recently created new IT platform in Asia.

A Swiss bank is investing over one billion Swiss francs in standardizing its asset management IT platforms. The project is to be completed by 2018. It is one of the bank’s largest infrastructure projects.

The bank expects the uniform platform to lead to significantly lower costs and, secondly, new growth impulses. “With a unified platform, we can improve the customer experience and be able to launch new products and banking services faster,” explains the Operations Manager of Wealth Management.
