Stories of innovation enabled by the mainframe

First National Bank, South Africa

Providing upward mobility for Africa through mobile banking

While branch and ATM use becomes stagnant and even declines, mobile banking is showing no signs of slowing. In fact, First National Bank has seen incredible growth across mobile channels — mobile and online volume have reached 234 and 175 million per month, respectively while branch banking idles at just 11.5 million per month.

FNB relies on the mainframe to evolve its infrastructure to support a new digital banking model, and reaching customers in new ways — all the time, everywhere. Watch the full story.

With its mobile "bank-in-a-box" solutions, First National Bank is delivering financial services over any channel and in near-real time – and helping Africans across the continent improve their quality of life. And for FNB, this is being made possible through the mainframe, using it to support the huge influx of mobile transactions with reliability, security and the flexibility to adapt to needs and get solutions to market faster. FNB, enabled by the mainframe, is building the financial health for millions of new customers.

As we move to this digital bank space, we're getting better information, people are becoming more informed and making better decisions and running better businesses. That's creating the cycle of growth and I think data is at the center of that.
