Banking is undergoing profound shifts as it deals with many challenges: new market entrants and Big Tech making inroads into the space, open data initiatives, margin pressures and more.

The challenges and changes are giving rise to a new vision for banking—one grounded in real-time decision making, reduced friction, personalised products, and customer experiences that delight and drive growth. To deliver on this vision, banks need to move faster and be more agile. And cloud technology will play a pivotal part.

Cloud is the foundation for greater business agility and continuous evolution. It enables banks to respond quickly to changing conditions, better leverage data, and achieve exponential productivity gains. Embracing cloud today will be key to staying competitive tomorrow.


Cloud is growing fast.

In 2013, the cloud market was US$58 billion. By 2020 it’s expected to reach US$160 billion.

The finance cloud market is estimated to grow from US$9.9 billion in 2016 to US$29.5 billion in 2021.
