Ziraat Bank Saves with More Economical Computing

Ziraat Bank improves performance of branch office computers with 2nd generation Intel® Core™ i5 vPro™ processor

With 23,000 employees in over 1,500 branch offices in Turkey and abroad, Ziraat Bank supports its operations with a large, geographically-dispersed network of desktop computers. To improve the environmental performance and operating efficiency of its IT, it recently replaced 18,500 of these with new computers powered by 2nd generation Intel® Core™ i5 vPro™ processors. As a result of the lower energy consumption, faster performance and remote manageability features in the new processors, Ziraat Bank will save an estimated USD 1 million (EUR 759,215) in the annual power and maintenance costs associated with running the computers, while speeding up its banking applications by up to 40 percent.
