Fortis has signed a deal to deploy Misys MidasPlus with Global Processing across its worldwide operations. The project will see Misys MidasPlus implemented worldwide across the bank’s commercial and merchant banking operations. The deployment of the solution follows plans by the bank’s senior management, led by CEO Jean-Paul Votron, to implement a strategy of accelerated growth and geographical expansion across their business. Misys MidasPlus with Global Processing will form the foundation of the bank’s solution architecture over the entire corporate banking business, replacing the mainframe applications already in use at the bank’s four largest worldwide operations. Alain Deschênes, CIO at Fortis, also says: “After having started an overall group architecture study, we came to the conclusion that Misys MidasPlus, in combination with Misys’s overall banking product strategy, provided us with a sound platform for our future.”
