Commonwealth Bank’s digital transformation, including the adoption of cloud technology and the migration of 95 per cent of its compute to the public cloud, has been recognised at the recent VMware Customer Excellence Awards.
At the recent virtual awards ceremony, the bank took home the 2021 Digital Transformation award.
To date, CBA has successfully migrated over 2,300 virtual machines (equating to 44 per cent of compute) to the public cloud and is now running the largest VMWare cloud environment across all of Asia-Pacific and Japan. At one stage it was migrating at speeds of up to 500 servers per week to the cloud.
“We know digital engagement is a key differentiator for us to remain connected and relevant for our customers. We’re always looking for ways to use the latest technology to modernise our systems and our thinking so we can truly re-imagine our products and services for our customers,” Commonwealth Bank’s Executive General Manager of Global Technology Services, Mark Vudrag, said.
