Macquarie Bank

Macquarie Bank has been working to transform its retail digital capabilities over the past 18 months. In building a new digital banking offering from the ground up, the bank sought to offer its customers a truly intuitive and personalised digital banking experience. The new digital banking environment offers customers a full view of both their personal banking and wealth management holdings, enabling them to manage their finances in one place in an intuitive and engaging way.

We’re honoured to be named as the recipient of a Red Hat Innovation Award at this year’s Forum. In building our new personalised and intuitive digital banking offering, we sought to provide customers with features that we believe to be a first of their kind in Australian banking and tools that are more like the social media sites, search engines and video or music streaming services our customers currently use. To achieve this we required a platform for execution and delivery that supports a constant stream of innovative solutions. Working with Red Hat enabled us to achieve greater agility and speed to market in a fast-changing technology landscape.
