LatamList – Itaú Unibanco, Latin America’s largest bank, announced that it will use Amazon Web Services (AWS) as its long-term cloud provider. The storage will allow Itaú to enhance the banking experience for its 56 million worldwide customers.
In a 10-year process, Itaú will move the majority of its IT infrastructure from its on-premises data centers onto the AWS cloud. The bank also said that AWS will now house its core banking platforms, call center solutions, and online and mobile banking applications.
“We are pursuing a complete digital transformation on AWS, moving off legacy mainframe technology and using AWS’s portfolio of services to gain insights and agility that will make us even more responsive to our customers’ needs,” said Candido Bracher, CEO of Itaú Unibanco.
The bank will benefit from the resilient global infrastructure of AWS and the wide range of services offered, including analytics, machine learning, serverless, containers, managed database, compute, storage, and security.
“By migrating its core application to the world’s leading cloud, Itaú Unibanco can rely on the proven performance, scale, and unparalleled portfolio of capabilities of AWS to complete its transformation into an agile and more customer-centric business,” said Andy Jassy, CEO of AWS Inc.
The bank will also be upskilling thousands of employees to enable a larger body of professionals trained in advanced cloud technologies.
