Bank Central Asia Chooses Cisco ACI

PT Bank Central Asia Tbk (BCA), a private bank in Indonesia serving more than 16 million corporate, commercial and individual customers, reinforced its commitment to improve customer experience, drive digital transformation and scale to support new technology when it became the first bank in the region back in December 2015 to select Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) Application Centric Infrastructure (Cisco ACIâ„¢), the company said.

Since that time, BCA has implemented the industry´s software-defined networking (SDN) solution to accelerate service innovation and application deployment, free up IT to be more proactive, and provide new levels of security.

The holistic architecture Cisco ACI creates empowers IT managers with the ability to manage an institution´s entire network environment from a single console, the Cisco Application Policy Infrastructure Controller (APIC). The automation, programmability and centralized management capabilities of the APIC ignited a cultural shift in BCA´s IT organization by eroding technological and procedural barriers that previously isolated operations, server and application teams and is fostering increased communication and collaboration between departments while also minimizing the human error factor.

PT Bank Central Asia Tbk (BCA) is one of the private banks in Indonesia focusing on business banking transactions, credit loan facilities, and financial solutions for the corporate, commercial and SME, as well as individual customers.

Cisco is the worldwide technology leader that has been making the Internet work since 1984.
