Running our mobile banking service on Linux on zEnterprise is another step forward in our continual evolution on the mainframe. The key value for our business is that the most important services can be managed together on a consistent, stable and highly secure platform that offers enormous scalability and performance.

—Daniele Cericola, ICT Governance Manager, Banca Carige,

Business Challenge story

To thrive despite intense competition, Banca Carige wanted to develop a customer-centric approach to service delivery, but it first needed to gain a deeper understanding of customer needs and desires.


Banca Carige built an analytics environment and a new mobile banking service using IBM software on IBM® zEnterprise® EC12 mainframes, which provide round-the-clock availability and high security.


Launching new services meets changing customer demands, while the proven underlying technology accelerates deployment and reduces risk; consolidating to a single platform cuts cost and complexity.
