First Citizens Bank
Microsoft Host Integration & BizTalk Server extend financial applications across the organization
First Citizens Bank is a $14 billion regional bank offering a complete line of financial services, including personal banking, business banking, investor services, trust services and insurance services. First Citizens Bank provides financial services for retail and commercial customers through a network of 340 branches in five states.
In July 2006, First Citizens Bank became the first Microsoft customer to deploy Host Integration Server 2006 into a production environment as part of the Host Integration Server- Technology Adoption Program. First Citizens Bank has deployed the Beta 1 release of HIS 2006 while working very closely with the Microsoft Product Team, TAP Coordinators, and Gold-Certified Microsoft partner, Innovative Architects.
First Citizens Bank is currently utilizing the Host Integration Server TI (Transaction
Integrator) via the BizTalk Host Application Adapter. First Citizens Bank is also
using the new Transaction Integrator feature of Discriminated Unions on the mainframe.
“Host Integration Server allowed First Citizens to quickly and easily leverage existing CICS functionality to empower business users to understand and therefore serve their customers better.”
