Embracing the Cloud

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:

  • Adeel Saeed, Head of Corporate Technology Services, London Stock Exchange
  • Andrew Yeomans, Board Member of the Jericho Forum
  • Sam Greenlees, Director, Business Continuity & Resiliency Services, IBM UK & Ireland
  • Nick Coleman, Global Cloud Security Leader, IBM Global Technology Services (moderator)

Our expert panel will discuss:

  • Can Cloud help with new business models and new business opportunities?
  • Can Cloud be used to gain competitive advantage?
  • What are the main barriers to Cloud adoption?
  • Are proprietary clouds the only safe option for the financial services?
  • How is risk assessed when considering a cloud platform to support various business groups?
  • How is data managed to ensure that relevant financial regulations are observed?
  • Who has control and access to the platform and the data?
  • Is the data backed up? And where is it located?
