BANGALORE, INDIA--(Marketwired - Nov 8, 2016) - Brocade (NASDAQ: BRCD) today announced that Fujitsu Consulting India has successfully deployed an end-to-end, software-defined networking (SDN) infrastructure to support operations at its new 2,000-seat Global Delivery Center (GDC) in Pune and Bangalore. This agile and programmable network has enabled the IT consulting and integration services provider to run a highly dynamic, 24x7 GDC environment designed to meet the most stringent requirements from Fujitsu Consulting's international client base. Fujitsu Consulting India selected the Brocade® networking solution based on its superior scalability, robustness, small environmental footprint, manageability, low total cost of ownership, and support for open standards. In particular, the company felt that open standards were critical to fully realizing the benefits of SDN, opening the door for Brocade's successful proposal, which was supported by a strong proof-of-concept. "Being successful in outsourced development requires more than just great design and programming talent. It also needs a high-performance IT infrastructure capable of keeping development teams productive 24x7, with the flexibility to emulate clients' environments, which are of an increasingly hybrid-cloud nature," said Mr. Mohammed Shahed Khan, Group Head IT & CISO, Fujitsu Consulting. "In putting together the specifications for our new Bangalore GDC and upgrade of the Pune GDC, it was clear that we would need to go beyond traditional networking to deliver the capabilities we see as essential to a successful future. Brocade came to the table with a very compelling solution with strong support for open standards-based SDN, and our operational experience post-deployment has been excellent." Brocade ICX® 7750 switches form the campus network core at the new Fujitsu GDC, offering 96 wire-speed 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) ports per switch and the capability to integrate up to a dozen switches into a high-performance stack. The stack can be managed as a single device delivering up to 5.76 Tbps of aggregated stacking bandwidth. This high level of performance, scalability, and port density has allowed Fujitsu to dedicate eight 10 GbE links to each of the Brocade ICX 7250 stackable switches, which provide wire-speed 1 GbE network access, with power-over-Ethernet to support IP phones, Wi-Fi access points, and other devices. By adding switches to the Brocade ICX 7750 stack, Fujitsu will be able to easily accommodate a 1,000-seat expansion to the GDC during the coming year. In addition to the campus network infrastructure, Fujitsu has also deployed Brocade VDX® 6740 switches in the GDC data center. The switches form a high-performance, low-latency 10 GbE fabric that is both self-forming and self-healing, and offers ideal performance characteristics for virtualized data center operations. All the Brocade switches at the Fujitsu GDC fully support the OpenFlow SDN protocol, enabling the IT staff to programmatically reconfigure both physical and virtual networks on-the-fly to meet the diverse IT requirements of simultaneous client development projects. "Working in partnership with Fujitsu Consulting India to help them realize the full benefits of SDN has been a remarkable experience for Brocade in India's offshore service provider market," said Edgar Dias, senior regional director for Brocade India. "It also reflects the fact that, in today's digital business era, legacy network architecture and technology are no longer anywhere near capable of meeting the needs of developers and business operations. Fujitsu Consulting's new GDC represents the future, with a strong buy-in to what the New IP can deliver." About Brocade Brocade (NASDAQ: BRCD) networking solutions help the world's leading organizations turn their networks into platforms for business innovation. With solutions spanning public and private data centers to the network edge, Brocade is leading the industry in its transition to the New IP network infrastructures required for today's era of digital business.

PARIS, NEW YORK, LONDON, AMSTERDAM, Netherlands and PUNE, India, Feb. 22, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Synechron, a global financial services consulting and technology services provider, has signed a partnership agreement with Bankdata, a Danish IT services company that provides IT solutions for eleven local banks. Synechron was chosen as System Integrator for the implementation of Murex 3.1 in front-to-back office, accounting and risk across all asset classes: the KaMP (Capital Market Program). Significantly, this unique program is the first Murex implementation as a Utility and has been divided into several phases. The first phase began in November 2015 with front office Fx Options. The project is expected to last four years and will involve approximately one hundred experts from Bankdata, Murex and Synechron in 2017 and 2018. Managing the bank segregation issue in a single Murex instance will be one of the major challenges. “Synechron is a certified Murex partner, which gives us access to considerable expertise and knowledge on Murex methodologies and best practices. These skills are not available in Denmark,” explains Jesper Glogauer, Vice President of Capital Markets at Bankdata. The first fifteen Synechron Murex consultants who began to work for Bankdata at its head office in Fredericia, Denmark integrated the scoping and design of Phase II front-to-back office derivatives and accounting for the program. They will participate in the program management, planning, architecture, integration and support team set-up. Bankdata may also call on the services of Murex teams at Synechron’s European Delivery Center based in Serbia. Furthermore, Synechron will play an important role in the training of Bankdata staff and the transfer of skills and knowledge in relation to the KaMP Program and Murex in particular. Synechron was selected following a competitive RFP among four companies, during the summer of 2016. “We are very pleased to participate in this ambitious and innovative KaMP program with Bankdata and with the support of our partner, Murex. This project pools all the knowledge we have built up over the past few years with respect to the integration of a financial IT solution,” says Pascal Rellier, Managing Director at Synechron. In addition to its status as a Murex Alliance partner, one of Synechron's major strengths is its Murex Center of Excellence created in 2015. It currently has more than 150 Murex experts from around the world and is able to provide in-house training with its Murex Academy and its 3T (Train The Trainer) certified consultants. Thanks to the expertise of its Center of Excellence, Synechron will notably support Bankdata with the setup of an in-house Murex Center of expertise. Moreover, Bankdata has found its cultural counterpart in Synechron: “One of Bankdata’s basic values is being aware of its employees as whole people. We felt that Synechron was concerned with its consultants’ everyday lives in Fredericia. We will be working diligently to help our international consultants thrive here, even when the honeymoon is over,” added Jesper Glogauer. Bankdata was founded in 1966 and has over 650 employees. It develops and operates the information systems of 11 Danish banks, including Jyske Bank and Sydbank (the third and fourth largest banks in Denmark). Bankdata’s company headquarters are in Fredericia, Denmark but it also has development centers in Them, Silkeborg and in India. Synechron is a global consulting and technology organization providing innovative solutions to the financial services industry through its three main business focus areas: digital, business consulting, and technology. Based in New York, the company has 18 offices around the globe, with over 7,000 employees producing more than $405M in annual revenue.
