Improving IT Efficiency and Ensuring Compliance
To bring project Symphony to life, Akbank used Micro Focus Data Center Automation with Server Automation and Operations Orchestration. The goals were clear at the onset: enable the IT infrastructure team to use their time as efficiently as possible and achieve full compliance.
Project Symphony Delivers a Master Performance
Initiated in August 2018, project Symphony was completed in eight short months, with outstanding results. “We saved an average of 5,000 human hours per week in 2019. The savings soared to 15,000 human hours per week during remote working periods due to COVID-19 in 2020,” said Bülent Saltürk, senior vice president of IT Operations and Systems Support.
By automating and standardizing processes, the bank eliminated manual errors and reduced the risks associated with manual procedures. Running compliance controls in the bank’s large-scale infrastructure once required serious effort. Now automation makes it possible to continually run compliance controls and easily generate compliance reports.
“Achieving successful outcomes at the end of a harmonious collaboration is very important for us,” said Deniz Kırca, Micro Focus Turkey general manager. “Our collaboration with Akbank – through project Symphony – paved the way for a highly efficient, high-performing orchestrated data center. We look forward to continuing this powerful collaboration.”
