Citizens Bank Modernizes the Mortgage Experience and Cuts Infrastructure Costs with Docker Enterprise

Citizens Bank runs over 1,000 services on Docker Enterprise. The bank can take innovative ideas from concept to reality in less than a week, transforming the mortgage experience for its customers.

200+ Daily Deployments and Up to 90% Less Infrastructure with Docker Enterprise


Citizens Bank wanted the capacity to innovate quickly, scale to meet growing demand and deliver new applications to modernize the mortgage experience for customers -- all while reducing IT infrastructure costs.


Citizens Bank accelerated application development, modernized key applications and shifted to a container-first strategy. The bank now runs over 3,200 containers and 1,000 services on Docker Enterprise to support its mortgage business.


Citizens Bank can now take new services from idea to production in less than a day, compared to the months it used to take. With Docker Enterprise, the team can run 200 or more deployments per day, and has reduced server and storage requirements by 40% and 90% respectively.
