Unveiled in October 2015, Hana Members enables customers to earn points based on usage of their Hana credit card and other bank services, such as savings, insurance, foreign exchange, and investments. Members can also earn points at participating Hana Money merchants and use those points for various services and payments. As part of the move, HFG aims to broaden its service offerings by taking advantage of the newest technologies from Oracle, including AI and blockchain.
HFG uses a wide range of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure services, including Oracle Database Cloud Service and Oracle Identity Cloud Service, having migrated the on-premises systems supporting Hana Members in September 2020. These cloud services are helping Hana Members boost operational efficiency and enhance business agility, enabling Hana to better meet customer needs more cost-effectively and deliver unmatched security.
“Such a large-scale cloud transformation project is unprecedented in the finance industry, not to mention within HFG,” the company said. “By migrating these mission-critical systems, Hana Members will benefit from innovation driven at a corporate, strategic level, with a focus on enhancing the quality of life for HFG’s customers.”

HFG added: “With its unparalleled data management capabilities, secure and stable enterprise cloud infrastructure, and groundbreaking autonomous cloud technology, Oracle was the right choice as a company that can work closely with us throughout our digital transformation journey, which is designed to maximize business value.”
The contract was won in a competitive tender that included major local and global cloud vendors. It also strengthens the existing relationship between HFG’s GLN (Global Lifestyle Network) and Oracle.
“We are proud to continue to be HFG’s leading cloud provider and to work on one of the most influential digital transformation projects to be implemented by a leading financial group,” said Tom Song, Vice President and Geography Managing Director of Oracle Korea. “We look forward to helping HFG continue their cloud journey to boost their service innovations and more quickly meet diverse and rapidly changing customer needs.”
