2019 Winner Profile

Asian Development Bank

Project Description:
The bank's primary mission is to eradicate poverty throughout Asia and the Pacific, primarily through loans, other financial investments, and technical assistance. With 40 member countries, distance, complexity, and IT silos made fulfilling the mission very difficult. The new cloud-based IT infrastructure allows for better flexibility, mobility, security, and collaboration, and has reduced costs to boot. For example, shifting from desktop to notebook computers and other mobile devices has simplified provisioning, with requests decreasing from 200 to 60 per month.
