The Australia and New Zealand Banking Group (ANZ) has built its main banking website using Amazon Web Services (AWS); likewise, the work it undertakes with its fintech partners is performed using the AWS cloud.
But when the bank partners with most of the universities in Australia, it jumps onto IBM’s Bluemix, and still uses internally-hosted servers when running things like hackathons.
According to Christian Venter, GM of Consumer Digital Technology at ANZ Bank, the bank is also starting to evaluate other cloud service providers like Azure and Google.
“Because they’ve all got different service levels, different services for different things,” he explained.
“Like everything at ANZ, we use everything.
“But we do make conscious decisions about where we deploy and why we deploy.”
