Dubai Islamic Bank has announced a multi-million dirham deal to revamp its systems.

The deal, worth 35 million dirhams ($9.5 million), will initiate a complete upgrade of the banks servers and enable an online banking service by the end of this year.

The bank will partner with International Turnkey Solutions (ITS) to implement the project, which will take two years. The first part of the project is the migration of the banks systems to Compaq NonStop Himalaya S7000 servers, which should be implemented by November.

The rest of the project, including Internet banking will be completed by 2002.

Scalable and Open

“For a business to succeed in today’s world a reliable, scalable and open standards compliance IT infrastructure is a must,” said Abdulla Ali Al-Hamli, director of IT for Dubai Islamic Bank.

“By investing in an open standards-based technology, we will be helping customers by providing them with efficient and timely standards.”

“Business is driven by IT and the banking business is not an exception,” said Butti Khalifa Bin Darwish Al Falasi, general manager of Dubai Islamic Bank.
