“Lenovo provided us with strong support based on their extensive experience, starting from the kick-off, through requirements, policy making, and various deliverables up to design, as well as actual migration support. The way the project was conducted was very well thought-out and sophisticated.”

Mr. Tsukasa Fujiwara

Business Administration Group, Shimane Bank

Building a future-proof banking infrastructure

Shimane Bank is a second-tier regional bank headquartered in Matsue, Shimane Prefecture, Japan. Founded in 1915 with the vision of contributing to the development of the local community, the bank operates 24 branches in Shimane Prefecture and nine branches in Tottori Prefecture, and employs 337 people as of March 2022.

In 2019, Shimane Bank entered into a capital and business alliance with the SBI Group. It has contributed to the growth of the region by providing a variety of innovative products, such as the smartphone app “Shima-pho!”, supporting the expansion of sales channels, and offering highly convenient services. By April 2023, the bank’s deposit balance had reached more than 10 billion yen.

In late 2022, Shimane Bank made the decision to renew the virtual infrastructure supporting its information systems. At the same time, the bank took the opportunity to reassess its underlying hardware infrastructure, and opted to migrate to a new vendor’s platform.
