About The Customer

Deutsche Bank provides commercial and investment banking, retail banking, transaction banking, and asset and wealth management products and services to corporations, governments, institutional investors, small and medium-sized businesses, and private individuals. Deutsche Bank is Germany’s leading bank, with a strong position in Europe and a significant presence in the Americas and the Asia Pacific.

The Challenge

Streamline platform for efficient development

Deutsche Bank wanted to shorten development cycles to get products to market faster. But its restrictive infrastructure made integration difficult and application development slow. Managing thousands of servers and databases hindered growth and the adoption of emerging technology. “Many operating systems were being used across multiple datacenters,” said Emma Perkins, PaaS portfolio manager at Deutsche Bank. The bank also wanted to replace its traditional waterfall processes with a DevOps approach. To meet these needs, Deutsche Bank sought to establish a PaaS that would streamline development and management, reduce risk, and scale easily to support more agile work across its business.

The Solution

As a leading bank serving private, corporate, and fiduciary clients, Deutsche Bank has embraced digital transformation by standardizing and streamlining developer access to compute capacity and other application resources to reach markets more quickly. Its new Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), Fabric, uses microservices and container capabilities of Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, supported by Red Hat Enterprise Linux and managed using Red Hat Ansible Tower, to help DevOps teams work and collaborate efficiently, with on-demand resource access. With faster, more iterative production launches and more cost-effective resource use, the bank has set a new standard for rapid application development and deployment using the latest technologies
