In the age of online banking, customer expectations of service quality are higher than ever. Not only do customers demand 24/7 banking, they increasingly seek out providers with services that match their individual needs.
Nationwide, one of the UK’s top savings and mortgage providers, wanted to tackle this challenge by extending its range of banking products, and enabling customers to start using them rapidly.
To achieve the objective, the bank deployed resilient, high-performance IBM DB2 for z/OS databases, running on the rock-solid IBM zEnterprise 196 server platform. Equipped with a comprehensive array of security tools, including zSecure and Guardium software, the solution helps Nationwide to offer anytime, anywhere banking services without increasing its exposure to security risks.
Today, the bank can help customers open new accounts faster than ever before. Moreover, by bringing new products to market faster, the bank can offer compelling, personalized services and drive customer acquisition.
