FISâ Profile is a multicurrency, core banking system that supports hundreds of institutions spanning 16 countries and ranging from de-novo startups to top-tier global banks. The HP Integrity server line â the companyâs flagship server family â features the latest dual-core IntelÂ® ItaniumÂ® 2 processors.
The agreement is the latest in a long and successful relationship between the two organizations.
âProviding Profile on Integrity servers running both HP-UX 11i and Linux will address the needs of both existing and new users for comprehensive, adaptable core banking systems,â said John Gordon, president of FISâ Leveraged Product Development for the Enterprise Banking and Retail Solutions division. âBy combining Profileâs industry-leading, low total cost of ownership with the economics of HP Integrity servers, the advantages to the enterprise server marketplace are phenomenal. We will be working with selected customers to implement Profile on Integrity servers in the second half of 2007.â
âHaving this leading banking system available on HP Integrity servers provides customers the tools and adaptability they need to see significant return on IT investment,â said Don Jenkins, vice president of marketing, Business Critical Servers, HP. âCustomers in the financial services industry choose the HP Integrity platform for the flexibility and secure availability it delivers to meet their mission-critical computing needs.â
FIS and HP also have agreed to cooperative marketing efforts for the financial services industry across the globe. FISâ broad catalog of offerings is currently being assessed for qualification on other HP server platforms.
