Novi Sad is one of Serbia's most ambitious and forward-looking financial institutions. There challenges were to need to achieve this expansion through acquisitions and organic growth, they must provide 24-hour availability of services across 68 branches and business centers and they also have to support rapid integration of acquisitions by enabling standardization of business systems and processes. They chose Cisco to overcome these challenges. The bank's new virtualized cloud computing platform is the first deployment of Cisco UCS. These new levels of agility make it easier for the bank to support business expansion, integrate new services, virtualize desktop infrastructure, and help ensure business continuity.
