AWS re:Invent 2018: National Australia Bank Begins Enterprise Transformation Using AWS
National Australia Bank (NAB) is working with AWS to accelerate NAB’s three-year enterprise transformation. In its first year, NAB migrated more than 100 workloads to AWS and plans to move more than 300 additional workloads in the next 12 months. NAB is one of the four largest financial institutions in Australia and serves nine million customers across 900 locations worldwide. NAB migrated its foreign-exchange platform—a regulated, critical, high-transaction workload—to AWS with the help of the AWS Well-Architected framework, reducing deployment for the app from weeks to less than 15 minutes. NAB has completed more than 30 AWS Well-Architected reviews to ensure its AWS workloads meet its high security standards, and now includes an AWS Well-Architected review in its standard controls and compliance framework. NAB has also deployed its NAB Data Hub data lake and NAB Discovery Cloud analytics environment on AWS, which are both 100 percent cloud-native. Yuri Misnik, executive general manager at National Australia Bank, spoke at re:Invent 2018.
