User Stories: Standard Bank CIO Secures Their Print Infrastructure
What is your job role and responsibilities at your company?
My name is Simon Le Brocq, and I am the Chief Information Officer at Standard Bank Offshore Group. I am responsible for overseeing the IT strategy and computer systems required to support the bank.
Can you describe your IT printing environment?
At our headquarters in Jersey, we have 200 internal clients which runs a mixture of thick and thin clients on Windows 7 and Citrix XenApp 6.5, while our remote locations predominately run on thin client applications.
In addition to our other locations in Isle of Man, London, Mauritius, and Johannesburg, we have a total of 420 internal advisers across the globe.
What types of print-related issues and challenges were you facing in your specific role?
We were receiving a lot of complaints from employees due to frustration from waiting for their print jobs to come out due to bandwidth issues.
We also were facing the risk of sensitive information being left at printers or misprints to the wrong printer.
As a CIO, it was a challenge for me to find the perfect solution that solved these problems at the same time.
