SeeBeyond, the leading global provider of eBI solutions, announced that Korea First Bank has selected its industry-leading eBusiness Integration platform to serve as the foundation for the launch of the bank’s next-generation technology infrastructure. As an early adopter of enterprise application integration (eAI) technology in the Asian financial services sector, Korea First Bank will leverage the SeeBeyond e*Gate Integrator platform to connect its internal legacy systems with numerous systems and applications throughout its more than three hundred branch offices worldwide.
Due to a corporate restructuring prompted by its recent acquisition by Newbridge Capital, Korea First Bank needed a flexible, robust and complete solution to integrate the entire spectrum of its operations. Korea First Bank has selected and is deploying the e*Gate platform to connect new financial terminals with its existing I/T infrastructure to support branch business and enhance the selling of banking products.
“Unlike other banks that have taken the approach of replacing an entire information infrastructure, Korea First Bank has decided on a best-of-breed strategy that enables it to better serve its customers,” said Jay Hyun, Executive Vice President and CIO for Korea First Bank, which was established in 1929 and employs more than 4,500 people worldwide. “After an extensive technological evaluation, we selected SeeBeyond to ensure that we maximize our previous I/T investments by connecting our legacy environment with our new integrated financial terminals.”
By standardizing its operations on the SeeBeyond e*Gate platform, Korea First Bank will be able to link its online transaction processing (OLTP) system, data warehouses and CRM applications with the new financial terminals, enabling the organization to manage its operations through a single point. Korea First Bank, with the assistance of EDS and SeeBeyond, began full-scale system development earlier this year, and has already begun reaping the benefits of the SeeBeyond e*Gate platform.
“SeeBeyond continues to build relationships and expand its reach across vertical industries, such as manufacturing and financial services, within the region,” said Mari Hiromoto, Vice President of Japan and Korea for SeeBeyond. “Korea First Bank is a forward-thinking enterprise that recognized early on the value of a completely integrated, real-time infrastructure. The SeeBeyond e*Gate platform was the obvious choice as it will enable the bank to improve its overall operational efficiency by allowing it to manage business processes in real-time.”
