Softlogic Information Technologies Ltd. (SITL) has successfully completed its implementation of the Credit Information Bureau (CRIB) Score data centre infrastructure. CRIB is the first Credit Information Bureau in the South Asian region. For over three decades, CRIB has been one of the pillars of the sound financial infrastructure of the country and tendered its silent contribution towards the strengthening of the foundation of disciplined credit culture in Sri Lanka, ensuring the stability of the banking and financial industry as a whole.
As part of its ongoing technology transformation journey, CRIB’s focus on modernization through the facility, infrastructure, and application stack will increase resiliency, enable rapid business product innovation, and deliver enhanced customer experiences. The new infrastructure will allow clients to manage and access data in real-time. Working in tandem with the Credit Information Bureau of Sri Lanka, the only credit bureau in the country, SITL has gone above and beyond its means to successfully establish a highly resilient, secure & flexible data center and cloud architecture which is central to CRIB’s Score infrastructure
The CRIB data centre implemented by SITL is the largest data centre in the country and it utilises the most comprehensive cyber security strategy to secure over 13 million records. It was developed to offer efficient data management and process administration, to ensure data confidentiality and process integrity of the highest quality and standard. CRIB has been a pillar in Sri Lanka’s financial infrastructure and continues to strengthen the foundation of a disciplined credit culture in the country.
Roshan Rassool, Chief Executive Officer, and Group Director shared his thoughts: “Architecting and implementing a highly resilient, secure, flexible data center and cloud architecture is central to CRIB’s strategy. The successful development of the Crib Score data centre is a monumental achievement for us, as it cements our continuous commitment to the local ICT industry in the infrastructure modernization space. I would like to thank each and every member of the team, and I would also like to extend my gratitude to the Credit Information Bureau, for placing their trust in us to successfully implement this infrastructure. “
Mr Nandi Anthony Director and General Manager of Credit Information Bureau of Sri Lanka shared his thoughts: “Softlogic IT did a wonderful job developing the data centre and delivered something far superior that we expected. It wasn’t a case of simply filling out Bill of Materials, but it was during the height of the pandemic, and the teams had to work together to fulfil this project. We are very grateful to have worked with a company with the resources of Softlogic IT, and we could not have asked for a better partner for this project.”
