IBM z15’s smaller and more energy efficient form factor is designed to help companies accelerate their digital transformation efforts in a hyper-secure, cloud-ready, scalable and agile platform with minimal disruption to critical banking services.
Jimmy Ng, Group chief information officer and head of Technology & Operations, DBS says it plans to leverage the speed, compute power and efficiency promised by IBM z15 to meet the bank’s growing technology needs resulting from the rapid acceleration in digital adoption among consumers amid COVID-19.
IBM z15 is designed to dynamically handle growing customer needs and is intended to enable DBS to modernise some of its mission critical applications and enjoy up to 15% improvements in core engine performance compared to z13.
Under the terms of the 7-year agreement, IBM will also provide end-to-end management in simplifying the IT infrastructure to optimise the existing software and application workloads. The green architecture of IBM z15 with newer compilers and energy efficient cooling technology can potentially improve energy performance by 25% versus z13.
