UK-based Nationwide is the leading building society in the world, providing 16 million members with housing-related financial needs. At a time when meeting customers face to face continues to be challenging, online support and being “always on” is more important than ever.

Nationwide needed a cloud solution that offered resilience, speed, and the ability to update and build new capabilities. They chose Microsoft Azure for business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR).

Before their new site went live, Nationwide enlisted a team of “Chaos Engineers” to purposely break the platform, testing both the technology and their engineers’ response.  Thanks to Azure, the site remained stable, and the Nationwide team now has a secure and resilient digital platform that they can continually evolve and improve on, all to better serve their members.
