National Australia Bank is to use ON Technology software to manage currency trading applications, including all Windows clients and servers, across its Corporate and Institutional Banking (CIB) division.
The bank recently placed a repeat order for add-on licenses for ON's application management solution and is implementing the system across CIB's 20 global locations, including sites in Australia, London and New York.
ON Technology worked with Australian-based reseller, MS Integration, to establish the applications management infrastructure across CIB's network environment worldwide.
The bank says the ON solution was instrumental in CIB's earlier move from Unix to NT 4.0 and its recent migration to XP. The division has now achieved large-scale global deployment of Microsoft Windows XP, with further deployment scheduled this year. Windows NT 4.0, 2000, and XP workstations, as well as Windows Terminal Servers (WTS), Web and application servers are all deployed by the ON Technology infrastructure.
Paul Hopson, head of infrastructure, CIB, National Australia Bank, says: "ON Technology's management solution has allowed us to remotely manage all our laptops and desktops including critical dealing room (currency trading) applications."
