DnB NOR Group - London Branch
“The Northdoor consultants provided excellent service throughout the engagement. BladeCentre is practically a data centre in itself, and Northdoor’s skill in setting up the technology was a major factor in the success of the project.” Patrick Dungan, IT Director
DnB NOR Group is Norway’s largest financial services group. Its London branch runs the group’s core banking applications for many of its European operations.
The bank took the opportunity to migrate from its existing green-screen user interfaces to a more user-friendly graphical interface. The required upgrade to ibis s2 software from Financial Objects entailed a move from a single tier to a two-tier architecture, meaning that DnB NOR needed to install 10 new Intel-based servers alongside its existing transaction processing platform.
Working with DnB Nor and Financial Objects, Northdoor designed and implemented the new infrastructure, providing in-depth training on the management and expansion of the BladeCentre solution.
