Java Branch Renewal

What financial institution would pass up the opportunity to cut branch-computing costs by up to 70 percent? That’s the order of savings over a five-year period estimated by early adopters of Sun’s ultra-thin client branch architecture and a teller solution developed by a Sun partner. With an ultra-thin client architecture, applications reside on the server rather than the desktop and are delivered through a Java technology-enabled Web browser. That’s the key to the savings: Banks no longer have to employ legions of support staff to manage software on a host of standalone desktops.

Clearly, the zero-administration branch is on its way. But our solution reduces costs further by providing an alternative to the PC. With a network of Sun Ray ultra-thin clients on the desktop, banks can say goodbye to the high costs of software licensing, as well as security concerns such as worms and viruses.

Sun’s solution depends on a new type of hardware called a branch controller. This intelligent device runs the teller application, provides the computing power for the desktops and connects to the data center. Better still, the controller is configured by a smart card and managed remotely by the data center, eliminating the need for local IT support in the branch.
