    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.
