ABBANK is working toward its vision of becoming a leading bank that uses cloud services effectively and securely. It is now expanding its investment in digital transformation to deliver the best experience to current and future customers. This will result in about 50% of ABBANK’s IT services being deployed in a hybrid cloud environment.
To expand its customer base and provide a seamless user experience, the engineering teams from ABBANK, Cloud Ace and CMC Telecom will be using Google Cloud’s Anthos platform to implement and manage the Bank’s hybrid cloud environment. This project will help reduce ABBANK’s total cost of ownership (TCO) and allow it to access Google Cloud’s extensible infrastructure and services to scale its delivery of digital financial services and products on applications like AB Ditizen.
Mr. Tran Viet Thang, Head of Technology Division of ABBANK, said: “Through this project, ABBANK is collaborating with Google Cloud, which offers a world-class technology platform, and the Cloud Ace – CMC Telecom consortium, which offers deep technical experience and expertise to establish a robust cloud environment with innovative features, to help us optimize costs, operate flexibly, and accelerate the development and provision of digital applications and services to our customers. This will increase our competitiveness in the market, boost efficiency and customer satisfaction, and strengthen the Bank’s overall business performance.”
The adoption of advanced Google Cloud technologies, in collaboration with Cloud Ace and CMC Telecom, will be a key factor in strengthening ABBANK’s brand, affirming its industry leadership, achieving its goals, and realizing its vision.
Mr. Pham Van Tuyen, Managing Director of Cloud Ace, said: “Throughout the process of consulting and designing solutions for businesses in the financial services sector, we’ve identified IT resource optimization and security as strategic priorities that cannot be overlooked. As a Google Cloud managed services provider, Cloud Ace is therefore committed to supporting ABBANK across the entire implementation process, while providing knowledge training to upskill the customer’s software engineers.”
Mr. Dang Tung Son, DCEO/CMO of CMC Telecom, said: “As a strategic partner of ABBANK for years, CMC Telecom understands the requirements and goals set forth by ABBANK. With the advantage of owning a modern and secure digital infrastructure platform, CMC Telecom is favored by customers who are looking to make progress in their digital transformation journeys, especially those from the finance and banking sector. In addition, CMC Telecom always works with large, professional, and reputable technology partners to help our customers adopt products and services that bring the greatest value and efficiency.”
Ms. Malis Selamat, Country Director, Vietnam and Philippines, Google Cloud, said: “ABBANK’s choice of Google Cloud as its primary cloud provider reinforces its commitment toward adopting enterprise-grade technologies that are open, scalable, and secure-by-design to enhance the way it engages with and serves its customers – from anywhere and at any time. A hybrid cloud environment will pave the way for the Bank to apply advanced analytics to better understand its customers, as well as adopt a microservices architecture to accelerate its delivery of modern applications and personalized services. Together with our partners Cloud Ace and CMC Telecom, we look forward to supporting ABBANK’s transformation efforts and its ambitions to become the digital bank of the future.”
