IBM mainframe deal

Brazilian bank Santander Banespa has selected a pair of IBM System z9 mainframes to increase its processing capacity, transaction speed and information integrity assurance.

The US$21million deal will see IBM install the mainframes at the bank to help with the 80 million transactions Santander Banespa processes a day, which includes all customer transactions at the bank’s branches, as well as via self-service terminals, the internet and telephone.

“The new mainframes will support the pace of the bank’s business growth. We always seek the best IT resources in the marketplace in order to offer high-quality services to our customers,” commented Patricio Melo, CTO at Santander Banespa.

IBM said the technology would help allow the bank to improve the service it provided to customers.
