About this webinar:

Organisations from the financial services industry are under growing pressure to offer digitally-savvy customers frictionless and innovative services, and a growing number rightly recognise cloud computing as an enabler of such technological advances.

Computing research reveals that 80% of financial services organisations expect their use of cloud computing to increase over the next three years. However, increasingly stringent regulations and security requirements, as well as the perceived risk of migrating core processes to the cloud, has created a degree of hesitancy when it comes to cloud migration. While a wholesale cloud migration may not be suitable or necessary for all organisations, embracing the benefits of a more cloud-centric approach is key to competing with more agile fintech organisations.

This webinar, supported by original research, will examine the obstacles that arise when migrating to the cloud, whether via hybrid or multi-cloud models. It will explore the technical, security, internal skills and compliance considerations that may be slowing migration journeys and ask how significant these hurdles are and what can be done to remediate them. Finally, it will explore what measures need to be put in place in order for the cloud to be a facilitator of innovation for organisations in the financial services sector.
