Banco Azteca, which operates in Mexico, Panama, Guatemala, Honduras, Peru and Brazil and is among the largest banks in Mexico in terms of coverage, wanted a change. Instead of running its operations on a proprietary UNIX infrastructure, it opted for a fully standardized environment running on Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Read about Banco Azteca’s migration in this case study, and learn how it saved money, sped up response times and improved its customers’ experience.
When it made the move to a standardized, open source Linux environment, the bank left behind a mix of UNIX operating systems. Banco Azteca also left behind higher support and maintenance costs, which were reduced by as much as 40 percent. Other results have been equally notable. Critical applications began running faster and the migration also enabled the company to clean up the unusable components in its legacy applications, improving response times by up to 50 percent. In addition, by relying on cost-effective Intel processors, the bank reduced its infrastructure costs by 40 percent.
As an example of Banco Azteca’s impressive deployment, in 2014, Jorge Juárez Acevedo, the IT Manager at Banco Azteca, was recognized as the Red Hat Certified Professional of the Year. And check out Banco Azteca’s case study.
