Saradar Bank, like most banks, was operating using its own proprietary data center. Embarking in a digital transformation journey, Saradar Bank’s aim is to disrupt their traditional banking model focusing on digitization.


Cirrus and IMS, both ITG affiliates, have joined their efforts to successfully achieve Saradar Bank data migration from two different legacy systems, to an agile infrastructure provided by Cirrus and Platform Managed by both affiliates in a record time of 18 months.


The platform technology provided by Cirrus shifted the bank to an automated, flexible and agile infrastructure, ensuring its growth in a way that meets the expected goals, customer experience and alignment with digital transformation.


In addition to Cirrus’ highly available and secure hosting that facilitated the migration and ensured the prevention of major problems, IMS, a software solution specialist, achieved a cutting-edge management solution called Integrated Data Output (I-DO), that facilitates the core systems activities by analyzing the data, extracting information as well as generating reports instantaneously.


In addition to the core systems platform, the high-end infrastructure provided by Cirrus, known for its agility, proactivity and automation, allowed for the fast introduction of two new services: Internet Banking and Mobile banking, shifting the bank’s services to its clients to a whole new level that meets the international successful banking guidelines.
