2009 Innovator Award Winners

Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency (SAMA)
SAMA, the central bank of Saudi Arabia, completed a project “SARIE,” linking all commercial banks to the central bank for electronic fund transfers. To provide fast data movement and rapid online transaction processing as well as disaster recovery capabilities, SAMA built a core solution leveraging Sybase Adaptive Server® Enterprise as the core database, and Sybase Replication Server® for data synchronization and disaster recovery.

Hana Bank
Hana Bank of Korea is a leading financial institution in East Asia. For its Next Generation Banking System Project, it implemented Sybase IQ analytics server in its data mart to collect, integrate and analyze dispersed data from a variety of systems. By sharing the common data of each work division, data redundancy is eliminated, and data consistency is maintained by the local store architecture. This architecture enables the bank to work across very large data sets and to make well informed business-critical decisions based on real-time data and accurate analysis. On-demand analysis generated by the data mart significantly increases productivity, and the new banking system provides a flexible infrastructure as the bank continues to expand.
