In eight months, we migrated ACB to an entirely new platform built on Microsoft UCC suite. Prior to providing ACB with a proposal, we conducted a workshop with the bank’s management and IT team to establish ACB’s exact needs.
ACB’s CIO, Matthew Martin, made it clear that the solution we design would need to adapt to ACB’s ongoing adjustments to the market and technology. ‘We wanted unrestricted innovation and productivity capabilities.’
‘We also wanted to be cloud-ready. Network infrastructure in Vietnam is evolving, so we want to move to the cloud quickly and smoothly as soon as that is possible. In addition, we wanted the ability to be compliant locally and internationally.’
At the same time, ACB wanted a platform on which it could develop digital services and, thereby, meet the modern needs of its customers.
Accordingly, we consolidated ACB’s previous multi-user solution onto Active Directory and multiple mailing systems onto Exchange. New solutions such as Lync, Yammer, ADFS, SharePoint, Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), and System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) were also implemented.
‘In effect, we created a social enterprise on a public cloud platform, enabling employees to interact anywhere, anytime, on any device,’ Burdan says.
