Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank Partners with IBM to Launch New Digital Studio
Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank (ADIB) has teamed up with IBM to build a new digital studio.
ADIB says the studio will be the first of its kind in the region, and it will be used to work on various digital innovation projects across the bank, including mobile banking iOS apps built on IBM’s Bluemix cloud platform and IBM Mobilefirst.
Sagheer Mufti, chief operating officer, ADIB, says the digital studio means it now has access to a team of ‘dedicated IBM digital experts’ – such as people from IBM Design and IBM Interactive Experience, the industry’s ‘largest hybrid digital agency and consultancy’.
The bank says it is looking to increase its activities in the fintech space, and will be using Bluemix to work on next-generation apps for cognitive computing and analytics.
ADIB will also deploy the IBM MobileFirst for iOS trusted advisor app, allowing their financial advisors to access and manage client portfolios from their iPads. Details
