About ANZ Bank Technologies

ANZ Bank is an Australian multinational banking and financial services company headquartered in Melbourne, Australia. Their more than 7,000 servers run with widely differing operating systems.

Challenges

  • ANZ Bank needed a reliable, efficient process to ensure compliance with the 22 regulatory bodies overseeing their operations. Partnering with Puppet redirected engineer hours from audit explanations, improved its scalability, and enforced consistency across platforms.

Solution

  • ANZ used Puppet for compliance reporting and enforcement across their disparate servers.

Results

  • Tens of thousands of hours redirected from manual service processes 
  • Compliance rapidly enforced across operating systems
  • Scalability enabled

“Having Puppet Bolt as the central core component for patching solved a whole heap of problems for us. We had been waiting for something like tasks for a long time.”

Nathan Kroenert, Senior Consultant, Enterprise Platforms
