In January 2022, one of Ultradata’s largest clients Hume Bank alongside with Ultradata, united to scope out a very complex migration project as part of Hume Bank's technology transformation.
The critical infrastructure upgrade saw the migration of Hume Bank's existing end-of-life on-site HP-UX servers, to state-of-the-art IBM p-Series servers self-hosted in a new Equinix ‘data centre cluster’ in Sydney. The new servers, along with high-speed networking and storage, will help future proof the bank.
The Sydney based Equinix Managed Data Centres, were chosen based on Hume Banks’ outsourcing selection criteria; reducing risk, improving compliance, uplifting critical infrastructure performance, reducing costs and operational inefficiencies with the overarching goal of returning the benefits to Hume Bank members.
Equally important to the success of the project was to find a core banking software solution partner that possessed the subject matter expertise and hands on experience in the right technical spheres to support the migration project in its entirety.
Longstanding relationships count
Additionally, from past projects (albeit smaller in size) and a lengthy professional history, the united project teams were well equipped with established working relationships that would help with a harmonious working environment, and deliver effectiveness throughout the process.
