du and ADIB extend partnership to data centre services
Agreement extends partnership beyond M2M products and managed connectivity services
du, from Emirates Integrated Telecommunications Company (EITC), is to provide Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank (ADIB) with data centre services.
The latest agreement adds to existing partnership on M2M products and managed connectivity services.
Farid Faraidooni, deputy CEO - Enterprise Solutions, EITC, said, “The need for rapid innovation, greater convergence and new services is driven by demand for high quality digital experiences. Customers now expect levels of personalisation and quality that match the leaders in any industry – this has made it increasingly important for banks to meet expectations that evolve faster than the industry’s ability to meet them. Our partnership with ADIB is a part of our efforts to introduce a convergence between finance and ICT to create a vibrant and dynamic technology base.”
ADIB will benefit from du’s data centre infrastructure which is supported by high-speed connectivity, resilience and redundant links.
Adel Ahmed Alzarouni, GM, Real Estate and Administration, ADIB said, “Our partnership with du will enhance our overall IT infrastructure, which will allow ADIB to deploy features and tools that deliver customer focused digital experiences; additionally, this agreement will reflect our commitment to be at the forefront of technology optimisation whilst in parallel, enhance our operational efficiency.”
