November 24, 2021

Cloud_momentum_is
For retail banks entering a post COVID-19 world, the only way is cloud. Today, the world’s most disruptive banks are in the cloud. For newcomer banks, cloud has been the only option for some time – and the same is increasingly true for established banks as well. Why? Because cloud is not only disruptive in its own right, but also provides the foundation for harnessing other emerging technologies.

As the COVID-19 crisis continues to play out, the need for banks to transform digitally using cloud is accelerating by the day. To do this, banks must steer their operations toward a new operating model. One that delivers a highly relevant customer experiences, provides easy access to innovation, and reduces total cost of ownership (TCO) without the burden of managing security and infrastructure. The way to achieve all this? Cloud. And banks worldwide are getting the message.
