Largest Bank In North America Moves Towards Oracle Fusion Middleware

Contact: Vikram Takru

FCS successfully signs-off the Phase I in the strategic initiative

The Corporate Investment Banking Group (CIBT) of Largest Bank in North America, Charlotte, completed the first step in their drive towards implementing Oracle Fusion Middleware across the Organization. This bank, after comprehensive audit on our credentials and capability to deliver has partnered with FCS in assisting them in this Endeavour.

CBIT has diverse Directories which needed to be unified using Oracle Internet Directory (OID). The objective of the Phase I of the engagement was to replace the existing home grown solution with the standards based OID. The solution needed to be architected and deployed in a scalable and HA / DR environments, at the same time should have the look and feel of the home grown application in order to increase end user usage.

CS implemented OID / LDAP virtualization across multiple LDAP stores (AD, OID and AS 400) resulting in quick development, deployment and trouble shooting of Wachovia's application configurations. A single efficient readable interface to multiple LDAP stores for internal and external users has been created. Oracle Fusion Middleware component Oracle Identity Manager was used for providing the key features like user provisioning and password management.

The entire engagement has been executed by FCS team working onsite at the Bank's Location and this team was supported by the ODC team in the US time zone.

This success story of the Phase I helps in giving the right thrust towards the Oracle Fusion middleware infrastructure implementation, leading to substantial cost savings to Bank's CBIT Group.
