Absa migrates digital channels from UK to South Africa

Absa announced that it has successfully migrated the digital channels of 10 African subsidiaries from the UK to it’s data centre in South Africa.

Over a two-day period – 18-19 May – Absa migrated the digital channels and account origination applications used by Tanzania, Ghana, Botswana, Zambia, Mauritius, Seychelles, Uganda, Kenya, Mozambique and National Bank of Commerce in Tanzania (NBC).
In April, Absa migrated the core banking of six subsidiaries – Tanzania, Ghana, Botswana, Zambia, Mauritius and Seychelles).

According to Absa, benefits that will be gained from the migration project include:

  • A more stable and scalable environment for Absa’s applications
  • Enhanced monitoring of infrastructure and applications
  • Transference of knowledge from Barclays’ PLC team to local Absa teams

“These projects were large and complex undertakings that required meticulous planning by highly skilled teams,” said Absa chief executive of engineering services Paul O’Flaherty.
