Ghana International Bank selects iCreate's Biz$core for Enterprise-wide Business Intelligence and Analytics

London - 28 November 2011

Pre-built, banking-specific solution to address reporting and analytical requirements of bank’s Finance, Retail & Corporate banking departments.

Ghana International Bank (GHIB) today announced the selection of iCreate’s pre-built Business Intelligence (BI) & Analytics solution - Biz$core, as a central component of their information management ecosystem.

With Biz$core, GHIB primarily expects to address the reporting and analytical requirements of their Finance department, general management information requirements and the reporting needs of the Bank. Biz$core’s capability to extract information from multiple source systems will also enable a single view of GHIB’s customers. The solution implementation would be a two-phased approach with Phase 1 addressing Financial Analytics and Customer Single View and Phase 2 covering the bank’s Retail Banking and Corporate Banking functions.

GHIB sought a BI & Analytics solution that could be quickly implemented at a low total cost of ownership. The bank decided on Biz$core as it could integrate seamlessly with their transactional systems and provide a single view of business critical insights. Further, an Enterprise BI solution would help analyze organizational data to measure and track business performance, improve operational efficiencies as well as support business strategy.

Mr Joe Mensah, Managing Director and CEO, GHIB said, “We were looking for a technology partner who had a banking-specific BI and Analytics solution that could enhance our MIS Reporting and help us gain a single view of the customer. Biz$core will help us achieve a single platform for all our BI & Analytics requirements.” He added, “I am pleased to see us apply information management best practices as part of our strategy implementation. We have in iCreate a strong partner who understands our business as well as our vision.”

Mr. Shaili Mruthyunjayappa, iCreate’s VP and BU Head for Europe, added, “It is a matter of pride for us to partner with a niche bank like GHIB for their BI & Analytics strategy. I am confident that GHIB will leverage Biz$core to gain a competitive advantage.”
