GarantiBank, a subsidiary of Turkiye Garanti Bankasi AS (Garanti), is making waves in the banking sector, standing as a shining example of a modern digitalised bank.

The firm has worked hard to focus on where it, as a financial service provider, can add real value.

Recognizing that overseeing IT infrastructure wasn’t a core activity it forged a partnership with an external specialist, Belgian firm Cegeka.

Cegeka has helped the Dutch bank set up hybrid cloud infrastructure, drawing upon the capabilities of Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.

With a hybrid cloud strategy now in place, GarantiBank also set about reimagining the way its employees are working and teams are collaborating.

With Cegeka’s help, it set up a new digital workplace for more than 250 bank employees based on Microsoft Office 365.

To further bolster this innovative approach, the Dutch company has increasingly championed new processes and methodologies like Lean, Agile and Six Sigma.

“Digital transformation isn’t just about IT, it's a transformation of the entire organisation” explained Alex Hurkmans, Chief Digital Officer, GarantiBank.
