Infrastructure Upgrade for SAMBA Bank

Formerly known as The Saudi American Bank, Samba Financial Group SJSC stood as a multinational banking powerhouse deeply rooted in Saudi Arabia, boasting an extensive network of 66 strategically located branches dedicated to providing exceptional banking services to its diverse clientele.

Acknowledging the pivotal role of technology in modern banking, Samba embarked on a transformative journey to bolster its infrastructure, primarily focusing on its T-24 application. This core banking software, provided by Temenos, forms the backbone of Samba’s operations, facilitating various functions from customer transactions to regulatory compliance.

In collaboration with InfoTech Group, a prominent IT solutions provider, Samba sought to reinforce the reliability and resilience of its T-24 application to meet evolving customer demands. This endeavor led to the migration of T-24 onto the AIX platform, renowned for its stability and security. Leveraging the advanced capabilities of AIX, coupled with state-of-the-art Power 9 infrastructure and Flash storage technology, Samba optimized its banking operations, reducing processing times and ensuring seamless functionality, even during peak periods.

By embracing cutting-edge technology, particularly in core banking infrastructure, Samba underscored its commitment to delivering unparalleled banking experiences while upholding the highest standards of operational efficiency and security. This strategic initiative propelled Samba to the forefront of banking innovation, equipping it to thrive in an increasingly digital and competitive landscape.
