The company's industry expertise, portfolio of services and solutions, and its robust ecosystem of fintech partners aim to support collaboration, innovation, and creation with clients. In September 2023, IBM collaborated with Indian Bank to deploy new front-end banking applications, while addressing the business growth of the CBS workloads for the bank. Through this collaboration, the two entities aimed to achieve greater agility, scalability, and security to meet the bank’s growth requirements in today’s dynamic and competitive market.

As a part of Project PARADISE, Indian Bank wanted to consolidate its Front Branch Servers for improved manageability and availability at their Data Centres (DC) and Disaster Recovery (DR) centres. Additionally, Indian Bank aims to run its Core Banking Solution (CBS) workloads on the latest generation of IBM Power servers. In August 2023, IBM Consulting extended its collaboration with Microsoft to help joint customers accelerate the deployment of generative AI.

The companies focused on helping customers to implement and scale the Azure OpenAI Service, which is available on Azure Marketplace. While being a fully managed AI service, Azure OpenAI allows developers and data scientists to apply large language models, including their GPT and Codex series. The main goal was to help businesses define an adoption strategy and an initial set of specific value-add generative AI use cases.
