SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) today announced that Valley National Bank has selected SAP for Banking solutions and SAP S/4HANA to enable real-time, fully integrated banking.

Axxiome, an SAP partner specializing in core banking, will implement the SAP solutions for increased efficiency as the bank begins to digitalize core tasks such as deposits, loans and customer account management.

Valley National Bank also will use SAP HANA software to boost real-time analytics and transform the complete channel experience using Axxiome Digital hosted by DXC.

Valley National Bank chose SAP for Banking solutions and SAP S/4HANA to create a fully integrated financial system that provides real-time banking, easy and flexible configuration capabilities, and a 360-degree view of the customer. The real-time insights enabled by SAP for Banking solutions, combined with Axxiome Digital as an intelligent digitalization platform, will allow the bank to become flexible and nimble. In addition, Valley National Bank plans to concurrently move all its systems into a single-tenant managed cloud.

The SAP for Banking solution portfolio streamlines core processes with a comprehensive collection of integrated technologies applicable to omnichannel customer engagement, transactional banking, payments, finance and risk management, human resources and procurement. It is the direct result of the company’s more than 40 years of industry knowledge and a spirit of cocreation with banks in pushing cutting-edge technologies to the forefront of financial services.

“In order to provide customers with a modern financial experience, banks must evolve the way they do business to include a digital-first approach,” Valley National Bank President and CEO Brad Scrivner said. “Valley National Bank understands this reality, and we are excited to partner with SAP and Axxiome through this digitalization process.
