By CBR Staff Writer

Russian banks, Rosbank and Alfa-Bank, have selected IBM POWER7 Systems to manage their data-intensive transactions and analyse data in real time, to improve customer service while reducing data centre costs.

Alfa-Bank will use its two new POWER7 servers to build an automated reporting system based on IBM DB2 to allow the bank to draw insights from vast amounts of data and help anticipate emerging business trends.

IBM said that the sytem at Alfa-Bank implemented by Diona Holding, an IBM business partner in Russia, delivers four-times the performance of their predecessors, and reduces energy consumption by 60%.

Rosbank, has bought two POWER7 servers running AIX, IBM DB2, IBM WebSphere and IBM InfoSphere DataStage software, which will enable Rosbank to implement a new CRM system and provide a 360-degree view of the customer.

IBM said that the systems will draw insights from large quantities of transactional data, enabling Rosbank to improve service and optimise its offerings and sales channels.

Rosbank’s migration to the new systems is due to be complete by the end of fourth quarter, 2010 and the new system will be deployed for 1,500 users across the company by the end of 2011.
