Driving innovation and optimizing customer experience

TSB Bank, part of the Spanish banking group, Sabadell, is the UK’s seventh largest retail bank, offering a full range of services to over five million customers. In its effort to further expand digital services to its customers, the bank has built a modern banking platform on AWS, IBM Cloud, and BT Cloud. The platform supports customers across all key channels, including mobile, where 90% of servicing transactions are completed and over 70% of sales are done.

TSB wanted to accelerate its digital innovation to ensure it could better meet customers’ where they increasingly prefer to transact. However, its transition to a dynamic multicloud architecture to support this digital transformation introduced rising complexity across its IT environment.

Multicloud strategies lead to rising complexity

To proactively manage customer expectations and ensure it can provide best-in-class banking experiences, TSB needed a new approach to monitoring. Its teams needed an all-in-one solution that could provide full-stack observability into its multicloud environment, offering a single source of truth around customer experience. After evaluating the market, TSB identified Dynatrace as the best fit for its needs, as it offers real-time, AI-powered answers about the user experience. The automatic and intelligent observability delivered by Dynatrace would also enable TSB to accelerate its digital transformation and provide the full-stack context its IT teams needed to continuously optimize the customer experience.

“Accelerating our digital transformation is top priority for us, and Dynatrace is the killer app to help us achieve this,” said Suresh Viswanathan, Chief Operating Officer at TSB Bank. “To keep pace with our customers’ needs and how the market is evolving, we must ensure our digital services are best-in-class, always accessible, and easy to use. Dynatrace’s extensive observability and AIOps capabilities have been critical to our success. Before Dynatrace, too much of our teams’ time was consumed by manual-intensive tasks and reactive problem chasing. Now, these tasks are managed automatically, and our teams are free to focus on what matters most – driving innovation for our customers and accelerating our digital transformation strategy.”
