Bankinter Analyzes Loan Portfolios 100X Faster with TIBCO and Amazon Web Services

Leading Spanish Bank Leverages Grid and Cloud Computing Solutions to Improve Performance and Lower Cost of Financial Analysis Systems



07 February, 2011


TIBCO Software Inc. (NASDAQ: TIBX) today announced that Bankinter, a leading Spanish provider of banking and brokerage services, is leveraging cloud computing solutions from TIBCO and Amazon Web Services™ to help mitigate risk and accelerate the complex modeling and simulations of loan portfolios that enable the bank to predict how loans will perform.

When Bankinter's demand for risk modeling became constrained by existing capacity and vertical scaling was no longer possible, the bank chose to integrate TIBCO GridServer® software hosted on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud™ (Amazon EC2™) to deliver scalable, on-demand technology resources. Bankinter now has adjustable computing capacity without the costly hardware upgrades so it can increase its flexibility to address new business requirements in real time and ensure the secure management and analysis of highly sensitive data.
