Background & Challenges
The client is one of the largest private sector bank serving retail, commercial, consumer, and corporate banking segments. The bank’s existing IT infrastructure was struggling to cope with new business challenges and evolved ways of working.
The bank was deliberating over transformation levers to achieve the next level of growth. The need for a resilient, agile, and secure desktop infrastructure was imminent. The breaking point for the bank came when it lost access to one of its main offices owing to a delay in regulatory approval. The crisis was the last straw for the bank as it embarked on the journey to modernize its desktop infrastructure to allow its workforce to work from home or any other location.
Performance expectations: Implement high performance, personalized, and lag-free virtual desktops for the bank with high application availability.
Regulatory compliance: Leverage the inherent security benefits of virtualization technology to transition to an always available, always secure, and always compliant desktop infrastructure.
Workforce requirements: Adopt location-agnostic remote desktop infrastructure for the geographically diversified workforce operating from headquarters and various bank branches.
Business needs: Embrace a scalable and agile desktop infrastructure to aid the firm’s multifold growth strategy (organic and inorganic).
