Kookmin Bank Chooses IBM System z10 and DB2 for Core Banking Application System

Seoul, Korea-based Kookmin Bank will adopt IBM (Armonk, N.Y.) System z10 as the platform for its next-generation core banking application system. The bank-wide project will consolidate all of the bank's different business units around the world.

Kookmin Bank launched the NGBS project in 2007. As the bank's service provider, IBM is currently developing the framework of the project and building a customer-centric, user-friendly application system.

In turn, the bank will be able to leverage new technology, devices and media to provide world-class services to its customers globally, according to the company.
