Deutsche Bank democratizes development with Red Hat-based global platform
As a leading bank serving private, corporate, and fiduciary clients, Deutsche Bank has embraced digital transformation. The bank wanted to improve the experience of both its banking customers and users of its back-end technology, including employees and external providers and developers who use the platform to build and run applications. Using Red Hat® solutions, Deutsche Bank built an open source Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) to simplify DevOps collaboration, optimize capacity, and increase efficiency, cutting end-to-end application development time from 6-9 months to 2-3 weeks.
Streamline platform for efficient development
Deutsche Bank wanted to shorten development cycles to get products to market faster. But its restrictive infrastructure made integration difficult and application development slow. Managing thousands of servers and databases hindered growth and the adoption of emerging technology. The bank also wanted to replace its traditional waterfall processes with a DevOps approach. To meet these needs, Deutsche Bank sought to establish a PaaS that would streamline development and management, reduce risk, and scale easily to support more agile work across its business.
Build new platform with open source technology
Deutsche Bank chose Red Hat to help build Fabric, a containerized, microservices-based application development platform. Fabric hosts systems and tools and offers on-demand compute for every application development team at the bank.
Gain efficiency, save time and money
Fabric provides faster resource access, helping developers work more efficiently and speeding time to market. Instead of 6-9 months, applications now go from proof of concept to production in 2-3 weeks. In addition, Deutsche Bank simplified DevOps collaboration with flexible integration and an agile approach. The bank also streamlined resource access, optimizing its use of datacenter and cloud capacity, saving time, money, and resources.
