The cantonal banks of St. Gallen (SGKB) and Thurgau (TKB) have selected Comit, a subsidiary of Swisscom IT Services, as their primary IT outsourcing partner. This further reinforces Comit's leading position as a provider of IT services to the financial sector.
In recent months Comit has won several migration projects for the Avaloq and Finnova banking platforms, and signed outsourcing agreements with the cantonal banks of Fribourg and Lucerne. This latest success allows Comit to extend its application management and infrastructure services to the SGKB and the TKB.
Comit has been a subsidiary of Swisscom IT Services since early 2006 and is responsible for the marketing and extended operation of application management and infrastructure services as well as providing support to banks along the entire added value chain. A specialist provider of IT services for the financial sector, Comit has a 400-strong workforce and a network of local support teams in all regions of Switzerland.
