Bankia Improves Workload Automation Environment
Bankia is one of the leading and most profitable financial institutions in Spain. They were created in January 2011 from the integration of seven savings banks (Cajas) and are headquartered in Madrid. With a team of more than 13,000 professionals, Bankia focuses on providing efficient, high-quality services to individuals and businesses, especially SMEs and the self-employed.
The Bankia IT team was facing the difficulty of managing automated tasks across various platforms, including z/OS, AIX, Linux, Windows, and Solaris. Their challenges stemmed from handling and managing processes with their existing legacy agent technology. As a result, the IT team set out to evaluate IBM Tivoli alternatives with a focus on enabling cross-platform workflows and secure managed file transfers to help move data between systems.
The Bankia operations team selected Stonebranch's Universal Automation Center (UAC) to replace the IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler based on simplification, enhanced QoS, and overall efficiency.
Fast forward to today. Bankia uses a single solution to orchestrate all IT tasks/jobs and managed file transfers across a mainframe and distributed system environment. UAC helped Bankia to take IT automation to the next level by providing a truly universal technology that enabled Bankia to maximize their scheduling investment and control costs without adding risk.
