by February 26, 2024

Vietnam International Bank (VIB) has implemented the latest version of the Temenos Core Banking solution, powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS). This collaboration also includes ITSS, a Swiss technology and IT services firm.

The upgrade to Temenos’ R23 Core Banking version represents a leap towards modernising VIB’s digital infrastructure, employing both AWS cloud and VIB’s own private cloud.

This initiative is part of VIB’s broader strategy to enhance its banking services, focusing on mobile access, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence (AI) to improve customer experience and operational efficiency.

The move is aligned with VIB’s “Mobile First, Cloud First, AI First” strategy, aiming to leverage cloud technology for scalable infrastructure, enhance mobile banking services with robust APIs for 24/7 access, and utilise AI for predictive analytics and personalised financial solutions.

This move will also expedite VIB’s ability to upgrade, expand, and introduce new digital products and services to the market quickly and significantly save time.

With the aim of becoming the most innovative bank in Vietnam, VIB is implementing long-term digital strategies, with digital banking witnessing significant growth alongside high penetration and digital conversion rates.

From 2017 to 2023, digital transaction Compound Annual Growth Rate (CARG) was 100%, with over 94% of retail transactions conducted through digital channels, serving millions of active customers every month.
