With a large project backlog, the development and test infrastructure at ING DIRECT Australia could not meet the bank's appetite for innovation. The bank's in-house team needed a faster way to create new copies of the bank. ING DIRECT worked collaboratively with systems integrator Dimension Data and technical experts from Microsoft, Cisco Systems and NetApp to design and deploy Bank in a Box, a private cloud solution that provides an integrated development and testing infrastructure. The solution reduced the time associated with environment provisioning and has significantly reduced the testing backlog. With a cloud-enabled infrastructure aligned to its strategic priorities, the bank can now bring new products to market in a fraction of the time, securing a significant advantage over competitors.
