Singapore’s DBS Bank has adopted Office 365

Singapore’s DBS Bank has adopted Office 365 to enable its employees to change the way they work as part of a strategic initiative to transform its workplace for the digital age. Over the course of the year, all 22,000 employees across 18 markets will be equipped with the cloud-based productivity tool, enabling them to work collaboratively from anywhere.

With Office 365, DBS is now able to empower its workforce to work collaboratively from anywhere, across PCs, tablets and smartphones. Across the organisation, meetings can now be conducted through Skype for Business, cutting down on travelling time. Enterprise social network, Yammer, provides a platform for employees to form closer communities and to collaborate across departments and locations. In addition, to encourage knowledge sharing across DBS’ network of employees, every individual will receive an increment of file storage capacity to 1TB per user on OneDrive.

Office 365 adheres to the highest security standards for cloud technology in Singapore and globally. This is an outcome of Microsoft working closely with the financial industry – on both customer and regulatory fronts – for several years, as well as its commitment to the industry. Microsoft has listened to industry leaders and regulators about their requirements, concerns and desires for cloud-based services, and learned about the industry’s needs surrounding compliance, security, privacy and control. Through these, Microsoft ensured its cloud platforms and services provide a regulatory framework that meets those needs.
