How a large global banking company started gaining end-to-end visibility over product development and delivering value
The client is a large global banking and financial services company with more than 8,000 branches spanning across 17 countries and employing more than 150,000 employees. The bank, known for its innovation and technology, serves the needs of millions of customers in both small and large businesses.
As part of its mission of going digital, the bank started with an application modernization program. This required its IT department to develop and deliver new features to their legacy applications, resulting in improved customer satisfaction, more business, and revenue over a period. The first step was to quickly build these modern applications and deliver faster to the customers. In addition, the client was looking for complete visibility over the development progress to understand the value delivered.
