Dutch banking group ABN Amro is to implement a data warehouse supplied by NCR sudsidiary Teradata which will be used to support its consumer businesses in the Asia Pacific region.
The regional data warehouse (RDW) will be primarily used by the bank for customer relationship management (CRM), customer revenue analysis and credit risk monitoring.
The bank's branches in Taiwan will be the first to implement RDW followed by those in Hong Kong, Southeast Asia and China.
Teradata says the data warehouse will replace the bank's operational data store and disparate data mart architecture.
The new system will integrate all data across ABN Amro's Asia branches to meet the bank's need for data consistency and allow the bank to develop a consistent multinational view of its business.
The bank's regional headquarters in Hong Kong will then be able to view the region's total business as well as the performance of each individual country's business, and each country will have a view of its own data.
