Stanbic Bank in core banking system upgrade with Validata
Validata has gained a new taker in Africa for its quality assurance software. This is understood to be Stanbic Bank in Kenya.
Stanbic Bank is upgrading its core banking system, Temenos’ T24.
The bank issued a request for proposal (RFP) earlier this year looking for an automation test solution to improve the quality of its testing processes.
According to Validata, the RFP process included an “exhaustive” proof of concept, where the tech vendor “successfully met all of the bank’s requirements”, beating other contenders, including HPE and IBM, to the deal.
Validata states it was selected “for its ability to add value throughout the automated lifecycle process, from requirements management to testing, defect management, release automation and reporting”.
Vaios Vaitsis, CEO and founder of Validata, is confident his company’s DevTestOps solutions for Temenos substantially reduce production defects compared to other solutions, as well as reduce testing times and the deployment of software corrections by half and with fewer resources.
