CIBIL Deploys HP Converged Infrastructure To Boost Performance.
India, July 4 -- Credit Information Bureau (India) Limited (CIBIL) has deployed HP Converged Infrastructure to improve the performance of its IT operations to meet the needs of its expanding customer base and accelerate business growth.
CIBIL provides CIBIL Report and CIBIL TransUnion Score to more than 1,000 banks and credit institutions, using credit histories of more than 340 million consumer records and more than 17 million commercial records. Almost no bank in India lends without checking the CIBIL Report of an individual or business entity.
With the continued expansion of India's economy and financial services sector, CIBIL needed to prepare its business operations for future growth. The company's existing technology infrastructure had limited scalability, was becoming complex and costly to operate, and was slow to meet the new era of business demands.
To address this, CIBIL selected HP BladeSystem c7000 to consolidate its HP BL 890i4 Unix Blades servers and HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000 storage into a converged infrastructure. With improved IT efficiency, the HP solution will enable CIBIL to handle larger volumes of transactions and accelerate the delivery of CIBIL Report and CIBIL TransUnion Scores to its growing customer base.
"With sustained retail credit growth alongside an improved economic environment, business volumes are growing steadily and therefore the size of CIBIL's consumer and commercial bureau is increasing rapidly," said Sudesh Puthran, chief information officer, CIBIL India. "Through HP Converged Infrastructure solutions, we are best placed to manage our growth and provide best quality services quickly and easily to individuals, businesses and financial institutions."
The HP BladeSystem c7000 server enclosure allows CIBIL to scale its IT infrastructure on-demand by up to 70 percent and the flexibility to increase capacity without any additional capital investments. Additionally, HP provides mission critical level support with HP Datacenter Care across CIBIL's hardware and software, ensuring that the company's IT operations run smoothly.
By deploying HP Converged Infrastructure solutions, CIBIL will be able to shift resources from IT management and maintenance to innovation to continue to deliver provide quality services to its customers, while providing a highly scalable environment that will accommodate growth for the next five years.
