The new core banking system adopts a model of a ‘thin core, big peripheral system’ approach in its application system architecture, covering 88 core accounting and peripheral systems at the Bank.

Zhang Qing Ming – Head, IT, SRCB, who accepted the award at the ceremony held in Beijing, said, “We are honored to win this prestigious award that is testimony to our joint efforts in delivering a successful core systems implementation project.
