HSBC-owned Bank Ekonomi Raharja (BER) in Indonesia has selected IBM Power Systems servers and enterprise-level IBM System Storage DS8700 products to upgrade its core banking system to better serve growing client base.
The new flexible technology infrastructure will also enable the bank to streamline its businesses processes and expand services.
The upgrade follows an agreement signed in June between the two parties to deliver and install IBM Power 770 and Power 750 systems, together with the DS8700 enterprise storage and i-HA clustering.
IBM Indonesia president director Suryo Suwignjo said, "The new infrastructure in place enables BER to improve access to financial services for rural households and businesses and to bring innovative services such as mobile and online banking to remote regions of Indonesia, including populations currently not served."
Acquired by HSBC Holdings in 2009, BER is headquartered in Jakarta and employs over 2600 employees in 97 offices in 29 cities.
