Dubai Islamic Bank (DIB) has selected Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE)’s GreenLake edge-to-cloud platform to transform its core banking system to offer enhanced customer experience.

The UAE-based Islamic banking company also intends to launch new services and digital products with HPE GreenLake.

Besides, the implementation of an extensive suite of HPE Aruba Networking wireless solutions will improve DIB’s connectivity, mobility capabilities, and overall network security.

HPE Aruba Network Edge Services Platform (ESP) is a cloud-native architecture that delivers automated network management, integrated edge-to-cloud security, and predictive artificial intelligence (AI)-driven insights.

HPE UAE managing director Ahmad Alkhallafi said: “With HPE GreenLake and the HPE Aruba Networking secure Wi-Fi platform, DIB will boost their ability to offer customers unique services, by providing their employees with the tools, seamless connectivity, and compute they need to strengthen collaboration between the teams.

“This will drive long-term efficiency and growth for the bank as they create new satisfying experiences.”

Founded in 1975, DIB is said to be the second largest Islamic bank in the world.

DIB will leverage HPE GreenLake for Aruba services, enabling the bank to manage its network centrally with ease along with comprehensive oversight.

The bank will also be able to provide a unified user experience, streamlined operations, seamless scalability, and comprehensive network security throughout the business.

DIB chief operating officer Obaid Al Shamsi said: “As we aim to become the most progressive Islamic financial institution in the world and align with the UAE Government’s vision for innovation and modernised services, we constantly refine our services and develop new solutions, taking into account our customers’ needs throughout their journey with DIB.”

Through the engagement with HPE, DIB aims to deliver simplicity and convenience in all its offerings by delivering a personal and engaging experience.

Last week, DIB announced plans to acquire a minority stake of 20% in Turkish financial services group T.O.M. Group of Companies.
