As the global economy recovers, financial institutions are seeing new growth and fiercer competition. That's certainly true for Skipton Building Society, the UKs fourth-largest building society. In 2013, the organization made strong advances in customer count, savings balances and pretax profits. Their challenges are complex IT processes slowed responsiveness to the business, aging server architecture didn't adapt to changing needs and IT department lacked the agility to keep pace with new business demands. They chose Cisco to overcome these challenges. They have implemented assessment of IT processes and aspirations, prioritized plan for optimizing IT responsiveness and updated server platform to drive a private cloud. The results of implementing Cisco were faster server deployments and highly virtualized server environment that adapts to changing business needs.
