IBM implemented a microservices architecture using IBM’s Cloud Pak for Integration to revolutionise QNB’s digital banking with a hybrid cloud approach
An innovative, pioneering, and engaging Digital Banking experience has been delivered by Qatar’s QNB Group to its customers in collaboration with IBM and its ecosystem partner, Mannai InfoTech, an ICT Division under Mannai Trading Company WLL. A key role in this success story was played by IBM Consulting’s Business Transformation expertise, the IBM Garage methodology, and innovative technology solutions.
By implementing a futuristic omnichannel solution, the project aimed to deliver a seamless Digital Banking experience for QNB’s customers. In terms of version maintenance, dynamic scaling, service governance, and service discovery, the implementation of this architecture has resulted in unprecedented simplicity.
To ultimately benefit the end-user experience, these advancements from IBM, together with the support of the ecosystem partner Mannai InfoTech, have allowed QNB to offer a more sophisticated banking environment, which has increased efficiency, enriched resiliency, streamlined operations, and improved productivity.
To assist with the deployment and testing of the infrastructure and support QNB in easily governing their integrations to ensure the security and integrity of their data, applications, and services, integration architects from IBM Consulting additionally guided the installation and configuration of IBM App Connect Enterprise.
“Major financial institutions need to adopt an unparalleled mindset to expand their digital footprint and align with the challenges and changes in the marketplace. At QNB, we engage with our trusted partners, such as IBM, to leverage innovation and build smarter industry solutions. Having a cloud-native solution will significantly enhance our infrastructure and improve business productivity.” Maryam Mohd Al-Kuwari, Senior Executive Vice President, Group Information Technology, QNB.
