Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank (ADIB), is collaborating with IBM to accelerate its digital transformation to become a modern, digitally led Islamic bank, using IBM hybrid cloud solutions based on Red Hat OpenShift. 

The UAE bank’s digital strategy leverages big data, analytics, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to deliver operational and financial benefits, as well as provide ADIB’s customers with improved digital banking experiences and accelerate bringing new services to market.

ADIB has a long history of working with IBM so selecting its hybrid cloud solutions was an obvious choice.

“As we continue to upgrade and enhance our operations, the bank will benefit from IBM’s hybrid cloud solutions that enable faster processes that can increase productivity and performance while also strengthening our security. The main benefits to IBM’s cloud systems are that they enable the bank to operate with greater efficiency and serve customers more effectively. In a fast-changing world, this will allow us to meet evolving customer needs in a quicker and smarter way.”
