GEFA BANK, a financing partner for German SMEs and subsidiary of Societe Generale, has selected DXC Technology for a cloud transformation project.
GEFA BANK, as per its G-Rocket program, will use DXC Technology to migrate the bank’s mission-critical applications and data from its existing data center to Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform.
“By moving to the cloud, GEFA is modernizing its IT infrastructure and gaining a higher degree of flexibility and scalability,” says Michael Quint, CIO of GEFA BANK.
In addition, DXC has put in place a training program with its partner Microsoft to prepare selected GEFA BANK experts for the future operation of the new cloud solution.
“DXC has many years of experience in the banking and capital markets industry. With cloud, the rate of transformation and innovation in this sector has accelerated exponentially,” said Marc-Alexander Drews, Banking & Capital Markets Sales Executive at DXC.
With the move to the Azure cloud, GEFA BANK and DXC will systematically deploy the bank’s application landscape to cloud-native services such as Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS). GEFA BANK will reduce the time-to-market for new services and create a modern development environment for innovative financial products.
