FAB partners with IBM Consulting

First Abu Dhabi Bank (FAB) has entered into a partnership with IBM Consulting in order to help migrate more applications to the cloud as part of the bank’s evolution journey to modernize its digital infrastructure.

FAB is working with IBM Consulting to conduct a discovery and assessment exercise of applications to determine the best way to carry out their migration to cloud environments.

This will allow the bank to optimize its technology infrastructure within a hybrid multi-cloud strategy to drive cost efficiency, increase productivity and create opportunities for innovation.
