Accelerating Digital Transformation: A Leading Indonesian Bank’s AWS-Powered Journey

About the Bank

One of Indonesia’s prominent banking institutions is a publicly listed financial services company headquartered in South Jakarta. As part of its commitment to innovation and service excellence, this leading bank is building a hybrid cloud architecture utilizing Amazon Web Services (AWS).


Embracing AWS for Hybrid Cloud Transformation

The bank is integrating its existing data center applications with AWS S3 object storage and launching a new application, on the AWS Cloud in the Jakarta region. This strategic move aims to modernize their infrastructure and enhance service delivery capabilities.


Key Objectives of the Cloud Engagement

The cloud transformation initiative at the bank focuses on achieving several crucial outcomes:

  • Workload Suitability and Migration Patterns: Evaluating and estimating the effort required for migrating workloads to the cloud.
  • Financial Benefits: Formulating a business case that clearly articulates the financial advantages of cloud transformation.
  • Organizational Readiness: Assessing the organization’s readiness for migration and creating a comprehensive action plan.
  • Cost Visibility: Improving visibility into cloud usage costs.


Optimizing Network Management with AWS Transit Gateway

Previously, the bank had set up 8 Site-to-Site VPN Tunnels attached to a Virtual Private Gateway, requiring separate VPN tunnels for each Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). This setup created a management bottleneck and increased VPN-related costs. By transitioning to AWS Transit Gateway, the bank aims to streamline network management despite the associated attachment and data processing costs, thereby simplifying network operations and reducing complexity for network engineers.


Unlocking Benefits with AWS

The bank’s collaboration with AWS brings several advantages:

  • Cost Management: Real-time cost monitoring provides transparency and aids in informed decision-making.
  • Scalability: AWS’s scalable infrastructure supports the bank’s expanding business needs.
  • Innovation: Rapid provisioning and testing of new features accelerate innovation cycles.
  • Efficiency: Simplified task delegation enhances collaboration across geographically dispersed teams.
  • Security: AWS’s comprehensive security measures ensure the protection of the bank’s digital assets.
