Case Study #7 With a focus on people, one of Alberta’s largest financial institutions chose Long View to help create a “WOW” experience for the 753,000 Albertan’s it serves through its 300 branches and agencies.

To become #1 in every market, you are in; you must have a plan. With more than $51.9 billion in assets, an integral part of the plan for one the largest Alberta-based financial institution is people.

Already being THE place to work for its 5,300 employees, the client also wanted to unify its diverse network topologies to create a consistent “WOW” experience for the Albertans in the 244 communities it serves.

Looking for partners with whom to share the same values and people vision, the client chose Long View and Cisco. By leveraging the technical and collaborative expertise of the Long View – Cisco partnership, the institution now has a standardized topology across the board with a shared central cloud management team.
