Kenya's Equity Bank to outsource data centre

Tuesday 26 April 2011 | 11:33 CET | News
Kenya's Equity Bank wants to outsource the management of its data centre and may lease out some capacity in order to reduce costs, Reuters reported. CEO James Mwangi said the bank has the only level 4 data centre in the region, built at a cost of KES 8 billion over the last three years. Mwangi wants to share the infrastructure in order to reduce the costs. He said the bank's core business remains banking, not IT. Mwangi also said the bank will launch an incubation and innovation centre in the hopes of developing application developers and commercialising their innovations. Mwangi told the audience in Mombasa that the new center would be created in partnership with Canada's University of Waterloo.
