System Software Platform Migration

Primary Contractor

Project Scope

Near-zero downtime migration was a primary task for switching from previous version of operating systems (IBM AIX 6) and enterprise database engines (Oracle 11g) to the most latest ones (IBM AIX 7.1 and Oracle 12g) running on IBM Power Servers. These were major prerequisites for very latest edition of Temenos T24 Model Bank applications stack. The number of system-level applications and its modules were upgraded accordingly. The team of highly qualified engineers from Fominov Consulting performed all necessary migrations and further stress tests for ensuring explicit compliance with technical requirements, as well as conformance to the Bank’s business continuity strategy.

Goals and Benefits

The smooth transition to the new version of high-end core banking system could shift Express Bank to the new level of financial services provisioning with rapid products rollout with unmatched flexibility. New features and benefits will contribute to the Bank growth, quality of services and ultimate customer’s satisfaction.
