From the smallest local credit unions to the largest banks across the globe, there are three significant challenges facing their IT leaders today:
These challenges present the perfect opportunity for partners to help customers in the Financial Services Industry (FSI) modernize their businesses through selling MySQL Enterprise Edition (EE) licenses and offering services around it.
MySQL is the second most widely deployed database in the world – second only to Oracle. Today’s largest and most disruptive companies like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Uber utilize it to power their popular services.
Many of your FSI customers are likely already using MySQL Community Edition (the freely downloadable, open source version of MySQL) in some capacity. There are millions of existing users and thousands of new downloads every day, so you don’t need to look far to find potential customers!
While MySQL Community Edition is a wonderful and extremely popular product, your FSI customers will benefit from the comprehensive set of advanced features, management tools, and technical support that MySQL EE offers. FSIs will require these features designed for the enterprise to meet the challenges of today’s digital landscape. This opens opportunities for partners to spread the word about the benefits of MySQL EE.
MySQL EE is the cloud-native database of choice for microservices and containers, making it possible for small banks and large FSIs to build modern, scalable applications while mitigating some of the risk of using public cloud. This not only allows any FSI to compete at the same level as their biggest competitors, but MySQL EE enables companies to achieve the highest levels of security – giving CIOs and IT professionals peace of mind with advanced features, such as:
Designed to help FSIs meet database-specific PCI requirements, such as authenticated access to cardholder data and two-factor authentication for remote access, MySQL EE also contributes to achieving GDPR compliance through tools like MySQL Enterprise Monitor and MySQL Enterprise Workbench, which help assess risk and identify security vulnerabilities.
Our case studies demonstrate compelling evidence of MySQL EE’s value. In one example, the Bank of Finland used MySQL EE as an embedded database within its product to provide a turnkey, easy to use, and powerful simulation application. An excellent example of innovation in practice, it has since been adopted by over 50 central banks worldwide, as well as other financial and academic institutions for research purposes.
“MySQL represents a very reliable and strong foundation for a computational analysis application like ours and has been a key to its success.”
- Matti Hellqvist, Bank of Finland
