The Client

Access Bank Group is a Nigeria-based multinational financial services organization headquartered, in Victoria Island, Lagos, Nigeria, with subsidiaries in Nigeria, Burundi, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ghana, Rwanda, the Gambia, Sierra Leone, Zambia and the United Kingdom. As of December 2015, Access Bank Group had assets in excess of US$13 billion.

The Need

The Access Bank Infrastructure Monitoring Team, Nigeria and Ghana, saddled with the responsibility of monitoring infrastructures located across respective branches. Just like Ecobank Group, they needed large display consoles to enable them clearly see and monitor all critical assets within the enterprise round the clock which the conventional TVs can’t achieve as they are not suited to run round the clock, 24/7. Also, there is need for flexibility in pushing whatever content that needed to be monitored on the screens.

The Access Bank Nigeria Infrastructure Monitoring Team having acquired the Premium CA Spectrum monitoring solution for infrastructure monitoring, set out to also acquire a matching display solution that will rival any modern command center console. Their target was to setup a modern display console to enable them have high definition visibility into the assets of the organization. They also needed to clearly monitor the health and uptime of all critical infrastructure within the enterprise. They approached this solution by installing a number of TV screens within the command center. After a while they realized these TV screens could not cut it for what they have in mind. It was at this point that the Access Bank infrastructure monitoring team came in contact with Proxynet Communications.
