• Digital Transformation for FinTech


A major European bank was facing compliance requirements with crippling fines/potential shuttering consequences and competition that was eating up the majority of new banking customers. The challenges included the following:

NTT Ltd. helped the bank on their transformation journey by introducing DevOps processes, containerizing applications, and automating CI/CD pipelines.
