by March 8, 2021

TNEX, the digital banking arm of Vietnam Maritime Commercial Joint Stock Bank (MSB), announced that it has selected Amazon Web Services (AWS) as its preferred cloud provider.

MSB, one of Vietnam’s commercial banks, was said to have been built TNEX in ten months on AWS.

TNEX added that it can monitor and ensure compliance easily by tapping the scalability of AWS Cloud. The bank leveraged AWS’ broad and deep portfolio of cloud services including analytics, machine learning, and containers.

This will enable TNEX to develop better ways to serve customers by innovating and deploying new products faster, and to drive operational efficiencies.

Additionally, TNEX also uses Amazon Redshift, a cloud data warehouse, and Amazon Personalize, a service using machine learning technology to support personalised product recommendations allowing TNEX to aggregate data about its customers’ preferences to recommend unique customer offerings in real time.

TNEX also uses Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS), a fully managed container orchestration service, to build its merchant platform using more than 30 microservices that support any application architecture.

TNEX said that it aims to provide banking services to approximately 60 million Vietnamese who have no or limited access to banking or financial services.
