I work for a bank which wants to replace its legacy, in-house-developed core banking application with a third-party solution.
SAP is among the top 3 vendors being evaluated, since it claims its banking solutions (Loans Management, Deposits Management, Collateral Management... collectively known as SAP for Banking) run on the i5 platform (formerly known as iSeries and AS/400... that is, the DB2 database on the OS/400 operating system).
Do you know of any SAP customer currently using SAP for Banking on i5?
I have looked around the Internet (SAP's, IBM's Web sites, and others) and the closest information I found was a excerpt from Celent's report "Global Core Banking Solutions for Large Banks: The Heart of a Bank" (www.celent.com ) where SAP for Banking appears as being supported on DB2 for OS/400. But I would like to hear about an
actual implementationon i5. All the other references I find speak about SAP's ERP on i5, not banking.
