AppDynamics selected by UBS as bank goes digital
Global investment and private bank, UBS, has signed an agreement to expand its use of the AppDynamics Application Intelligence Platform across its critical applications to supports its digital transformation initiatives.
“Using AppDynamics we have been able to improve the speed at which we identified and remediated application issues, as well as avoid incidents in the first place,” said Paul McEwen, chief information officer of infrastructure services at UBS. “As part of our integrated monitoring strategy, the AppDynamics platform helps us achieve some of our strategic IT goals – updating our platforms, increasing stability, boosting operational efficiency and agility and creating a consistent user experience across all of our services.”
Following a competitive evaluation, UBS has selected AppDynamics to deliver end-to-end visibility across its complex application environment, helping its production services and development teams to actively identify issues before they impact business critical services.
The decision to deploy AppDynamics across hundreds of applications throughout UBS’ global business units is in support of the bank’s ongoing program to update the platforms used by customer-facing and internal banking services to a more flexible private cloud model. UBS required an APM solution to manage performance across its application estate.
The firms has reported a fourfold reduction in the number of alerts and a cut in staff onboarding time to one day from one month. One of the highly complex services that AppDynamics will be used to support is the Neo portal platform, designed to give UBS clients a way to collaborate, analyse, trade and manage assets by the end of 2016.
