State Bank of India (SBI) is the largest bank in India and among the world’s top 40 global banks. Headquartered in Mumbai, it serves more than 400 million customers and has 24,000 branches in 36 countries.
The bank recognizes that to continue to grow in a changing world, it must collaborate with partners and innovators outside the company as well as upskilling its own people on emerging technologies. Having successfully run internal hackathons, SBI launched an open hackathon to foster greater collaboration and innovation.
Using CA Service Virtualization and CA API Management, SBI was able to virtualize and make its APIs available securely via the cloud during the hackathon and avoid the risks associated with providing access to its sandboxes. SBI also deployed CA BlazeMeter to monitor the environment and ensure high levels of performance for the hundreds of participants.
As the experience of SBI with CA Service Virtualization, CA API Management and CA BlazeMeter has been satisfactory, the bank is now exploring with CA Technologies the use of other solutions in future hackathons.
