Sun and Infosys forge bank technology alliance

Sun has entered an alliance with Infosys to deliver joint solutions based around the Indian company's Finacle enterprise banking platform.

Under the agreement, Infosys' Finacle suite will be tightly integrated with the Sun One high-end computing platform.

Co-marketing and technology initiatives include: organising events, benchmarking, retail banking architecture solutions, optimised high throughput banking solutions and R&D on emerging technologies in the banking space. In addition, mutual clients will be able to test proof-of-concept banking solutions in Sun's iForce Solution Centres.

The pact has been welcomed by existing Infosys customer ICICI Bank, which currently runs the Finacle package on Sun hardware.

Says K V Kamath, managing director and CEO: "Such an alliance, in our view will help in delivering high performance solutions. We expect to receive a more comprehensive set of solutions to meet the requirements of our IT infrastructure from this partnership."
