How a multi-cloud strategy will help banks mitigate risks in the cloud

Cloud in its various forms has become the de facto architecture for modern IT and digital transformation (DX) for business agility, flexibility, scalability, security, and innovation. In regulated industries such as financial services, the complexity of legacy systems, cultural shifts, and compliance requirements have until recently slowed adoption. Regulators companies alike are concerned about concentration risk, vendor lock-in, operational resilience, reliability, and over-reliance on third-party providers. In that context, adopting a multi-cloud strategy is shaping up to become a key strategic pillar which allows companies to gain the benefits of cloud technologies while addressing regulatory concerns.

How an innovative cloud banking platform can redefine financial services for consumers and companies

In an age where technology has changed how we interact, both with one another and service providers, businesses not embracing this change will be left behind - particularly in financial services. Perceived as a threat for most incumbents, these external influences can also be an incentive to change, the opportunity to redefine financial services for consumers, and for themselves. For challengers, the change isn’t a threat at all: it’s a major opportunity and a serious competitive advantage. They are taking a completely fresh approach to their core banking infrastructure challenges. They deploy in the cloud such as Google Cloud Platform, configure instead of customize and instead of enduring major, risky releases, they continually improve. Mambu was launched in 2011 with the vision to enable access to modern financial services for all. By providing a modern cloud banking platform, Mambu is changing the market through its composable banking approach. At the CGI Banking Talk, I will show how our platform provides customers the ability to design and run any financial product while rapidly integrating to the best-of-service ecosystem. I’m looking forward to see you there and discuss with you!

HotScan360 - Moving the whole product lifecycle into the cloud

Three years ago, we developed the anti-money laundering platform "CGI HotScan360". Our ambition was to build a modern, micro-services based product, cloud-ready, highly scalable, and with automated deployment. After initial considerations of developing the system within a private cloud, we chose to develop within Azure instead. During the project we addressed many technical, commercial or human resources related issues. Why did we choose to go cloud-only and why Azure?

During CGI Banking Talk, you will receive insights into what it means to develop entirely in the cloud, what our main challenges and best practices were, and how clients benefit from our experience.
