"DANA continues to modernize its IT infrastructure on Alibaba Cloud by introducing a range of innovative software development solutions. Working with Alibaba Cloud, DANA simplified and modernized its IT infrastructure, reduced its operational requirements, and built a secure and fast transaction network."
DANA is a leading digital wallet provider in Indonesia, where its mobile payment gateway is used for both online and offline transactions. This service enables a range of cashless and card-less transactions, including the purchase of mobile data packages, payments to various DANA merchants, and other bill payments.
DANA’s existing IT infrastructure used an on-premise solution, combined with a public cloud hosted in Singapore. When the company’s transaction volumes began to increase, several issues emerged for the company’s online applications from both a security and performance perspective.
DANA needed to meet local compliance requirements for its electronic payments and, for its on-premise infrastructure, the company faced mounting operational and compliance costs to achieve this. High latency issues as well as data and network security risks were also negatively impacting its network.
These factors translated into a poor user experience for the company’s customers, IT team, and partners, where these stakeholders struggled to connect to the platform and complete their transactions using the existing IT ecosystem.
