A network adapted to your needs: transforming a financial services business with SD-WAN
The customer and the challenge
Every change is a new chance to grow
One of Australasia’s major banks operates in over 30 markets worldwide. The company offers banking and financial services to millions of retail and business customers. When the pandemic hit, they managed to adapt their operations to the changing circumstances and ensure business continuity. After introducing the new ways of working and recognising their potential, they found themselves at a crossroads. And instead of going back to their old ways, they decided to continue their digital journey to enjoy further benefits of their transformation in the long run.
Paving the digital path
The company wanted to transform and refresh their internal infrastructure to move towards a cloud-first future and manage their critical applications. Speed and flexibility were paramount for them to leverage cloud technologies and to enhance remote working capabilities for their employees, while delivering seamless digital services for their customers. The company wanted to shift to a SaaS-driven model to become more agile when responding to new opportunities. They realised that the rollout of SD-WAN would bring them closer to their goals.
Go beyond your network boundaries
The company was aware that SD-WAN would give them complete control of their network and a toolset to make their digital transformation simple and smooth. They knew that intelligent and reliable connectivity would be a must for building their digital business on the pillars of agility, modernisation and responsiveness. They needed help to create a hybrid model to get the most out of their multiple resources and to manage their network in a more efficient and secure way.
