The Financial Agency (FINA) of today is the leading Croatian company in the field of financial intermediation. Its active market role resulted in numerous application and business servers that provide daily support to many organizations, which resulted in a great number of application servers, databases, etc. In order to be ready to keep facing all market challenges, FINA decided to start the project of consolidation and standardization of the IT system and entrust CROZ with the job.
In the initial stage, the application servers and databases were standardized using the WebSphere Application Server, DB2, and Oracle DataBase. Business process support was standardized using the IBM Business Process Manager, whereas document management was systematized using the IBM FileNet Content Manager.
Afterwards, the server platform was consolidated on Linux on z, significantly reducing the costs in licences and avoiding additional hardware costs. The realization of this project simplified operative tasks and enhanced the readiness for the implementation of new services at FINA.
