Join Finextra and IBM for a webcast that examines how the financial industry is embracing the Cloud.
Cloud is often considered when banks start thinking about creating greater efficiencies or cost cutting or data storage management. IT managers are feeling the pressure to lower infrastructure-related expenditures, heighten efficiencies and improve service levels across the business.
Many are looking at cloud computing to help them achieve these goals. Many analysts predict that most banks will migrate to a so-called ‘hybrid-cloud’ environment, which combines private, public and community clouds integrated with existing bank systems. This configuration can provide the right level of control and security for each specific business function within the bank.
So, now for banks, dealing with approaching cloud platforms is now not a matter of ‘how’, but a matter of ‘when’.
Finextra have gathered a team of experts to discuss the role of cloud computing within banking and the measures being taken to ensure resiliency and security. Register now to hear from:
