Today, banks are operating in a highly volatile climate. Increasing regulation, continuous pressure on cost, changing business models, mergers and acquisitions, and remaining competitive require a flexible, efficient, and smart IT operation:

  • Banks need IT as an accelerator of business growth, not as an inhibitor.
  • Bank data centers can and must be made smarter.
  • Banks need expert integrated systems.

This IBM® Redbooks® Point-of-View publication analyzes what makes a data center successful and explains how IBM expert integrated systems help to accomplish the goal of hosting a lower cost, more flexible and smarter bank data center.
