Cisco helps India's banking & financial services sector to transform Digitally
Cisco has developed a Digital Transformation Blueprint for the banking & financial services sector. The blueprint leverages the power of Cisco’s intent-based networking portfolio to integrate connectivity, security, automation, collaboration, and analytics across the business value chain. It will deliver enhanced customer experience, improved workforce productivity, build new business models and protect against risks by bringing in connectivity and visibility into every aspect of the organization.
New services enabled by digital technologies can help banking and financial firms to maximize the value they offer to the customers. According to a recent Cisco study, these digital opportunities make financial services the No.2-ranked industry in terms of Digital Value at Stake, with an estimated $3.14 trillion up for grabs over the next decade. However, this will require a convergence of mobility, analytics, and video to create delightful experiences and effortless transactions for the customers. It will also allow the industry to move away from legacy and paper-based approaches thereby enabling improved delivery of services cost-effectively.
The National Stock Exchange (NSE), India’s largest stock exchange and the world’s fourth largest in terms of daily turnover and number of trades, is leveraging Cisco’s world-class, ultra-low-latency trading architecture to deliver high-performance trading experiences, greater control, and visibility to its members. Cisco has also completely automated NSE’s data center, helping it reduce app deployment time from weeks to hours. Optimising NSE’s network with Cisco ACI has allowed it to reduce overall efforts by 15-18%. NSE is also leveraging Cisco’s AppDynamics platform to monitor the performance of core applications and get real-time analytics for business performance to deliver superior end-user experience.
Cisco is leading the disruption in the industry with its technological innovations in systems, silicon, software and security, and unrivaled expertise in mass-scale networking, automation, analytics, video, wireless and mobility. Combining these capabilities with Cisco’s portfolio of go-to-market, security, collaboration, IoT, and professional services capabilities, it is enabling financial services companies across the world to reduce cost and complexity, grow revenue and more importantly to help secure their network and customer data.
Sameer Garde, President, Cisco India and SAARC says, “Today financial institutions experience an unrelenting need to be flexible, secure and scalable across increasingly complex data centers. In addition to gaining performance and operational efficiencies, Cisco ACI has enabled the National Stock Exchange to manage it’s infrastructure and data repositories, which is critical when handling sensitive customer and financial data. In addition to that, with AppDynamics, NSE will have complete visibility spanning from the infrastructure to application to end user, thereby offering a superior end-user experience. From a trading perspective, speed, efficiency, and data accuracy are critical for investors, and therefore we are delighted that National Stock Exchange has partnered with Cisco to power their digital transformation journey’.
