HO CHI MINH CITY, Vietnam, December 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
- Bank Aims to Serve the Internet Banking Needs of 2 Million Customers by 2016
Saigon Thuong Tin Commercial Joint Stock Bank (Sacombank) has announced its partnership with Infosys, a global leader in consulting and technology, to implement the new generation Finacle e-banking & mobile banking solution. The Bank will install Finacle's consumer e-banking, corporate e-banking and mobile banking solutions. The solutions will enable the bank to develop sophisticated internet banking products and services with faster roll out times, targeted at improving customer satisfaction. It will also help influence customer loyalty through unique personalization capabilities, industry-leading security features and intelligent customer insights that will drive the adoption of online banking.
Given Vietnam's relatively high internet usage rates and strong willingness among customers to adopt new technology, Sacombank envisages an addition of several million e-banking customers over the next few years. The bank, therefore, required an e-banking solution that would offer both flexibility and scalability to support its expansion plans, while improving customer experience. The bank chose Finacle's new generation solution for its extensible architecture and unique persona driven features.
Finacle's e-banking solution will enable Sacombank customers to use advanced online functions and services such as personal financial management, liquidity management and online L/C. Corporate clients, in particular, can submit payment orders via mobile phone after the e-banking system upgrade that is scheduled for December next year. This is in addition to the current internet and mobile phones based services such as intra-bank and bank-to-bank transfers, utility bill payments, term deposit purchase, airlines ticket purchase, prepaid card top up, etc.
Mr. Nguyen Minh Tam, Deputy CEO of Sacombank said: "To keep pace with the development of the banking sector as well as the increasing popularity of the internet and hence higher usage of internet banking, Sacombank has set Information Technology - one of the four key strategies - to be the top priority in the Bank's 2011-2015 development period. In order to achieve this key objective, Sacombank has invested heavily on information technology system in the recent years, including e-banking transaction channel. Therefore, this cooperation with Infosys will open up opportunities for Sacombank to further penetrate in the very potential market and to set solid foundation to become the best service and most competitive bank in Vietnam and the region. The objective of this project is to enhance our capability to serve the e-banking needs of more than 2.000.000 customers by 2016 and to allow customers to make almost all banking transactions over Internet."
Mr. Sanat Rao, Vice President and Global Head - Client Services, Finacle, Infosys said: "Sacombank is a pioneer in the Indo-China market for innovation and commitment to excellence and we are privileged to be chosen as the bank's strategic technology partner. Channels, especially online and mobile, are the top innovation priorities and key growth levers for tomorrow's banks. With Finacle's proven channel banking solutions, we are committed to helping Sacombank innovate and engage more consumers in newer ways. This as an exciting opportunity for us and strongly underlines Infosys' capabilities to support banks throughout Vietnam and the ASEAN region."

In the 21st century, security on the Internet has become one of the most important issues. We hear more and more about cyber-attacks on the websites of large corporations, banks and even small businesses. When online we’re concerned not only for our own safety but also our privacy. We have to know that hackers usually start their preparation by investigating the private information of admins – the habits, interests, visited websites and so on.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...
