Our Satisfied Customers

Financial IT Solutions

Personalization and easy access to financial services are now the expectation all customers hold. Current technologies, including AI and big data management, enable organizations to offer new financial IT services to customers. However, these services can’t get off the ground with outdated  infrastructure, underutilized data, or technology that doesn’t meet security and compliance standards.

Expectations Shift for Financial Services

The Financial services industry is looking to the cloud to enhance current business operations, resiliency, compliance, and prepare them for the future. Cloud adoption by financial service businesses is set to hit 90% by 2023.

 

Artificial intelligence will factor heavily into this. Over 80% of financial institutions believe that AI technology is a key driver for success. Adoption of this technology also meets expectations held by 66% of consumers who want to see real-time and personalized offers. They also want businesses to understand their unique needs and expectations. 

 

The industry also has to adapt to changing expectations of their workforce. 60% of employees plan on continuing to work in a hybrid or remote capacity.

Security Threats Challenge Financial Services

Cyber threats are a present and growing driver for financial services companies as they move to cloud technologies. Almost 90% of IT executives in the industry reported cyberattack increases in the past year. The financial industry is the second-highest target for data breaches, with an average cost of $5.72 million per breach.

 

However, even with these clear issues, fewer than 25% of banks have a cloud-specific leader or staff internally. Financial services organizations say cybersecurity (43%) and AI/machine learning (49%) tech talent capabilities are the hardest to fill.

Transform Financial Services with the Cloud

With the right tools and IT infrastructure, financial services organizations can harness cloud capabilities to deliver an improved customer experience. A stronger emphasis on data and analytics can help organizations make more informed and efficient business decisions. All while helping create a more personalized experience for end users.

Balance Security and Transformation Initiatives

Technology decisions can affect strategic, regulatory, operational, financial, and risk to your reputation. Digital transformation can allow you to deliver engaging customer experiences and valuable insight. However, financial information also needs to be kept secure at all times. 

 

Your customers expect an experience that is fast, frictionless, and amenable to self-service. Financial services organizations need to answer the call and grow while protecting valuable data.

Simplify and Optimize for IT Growth

Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and growth over time can lead to IT infrastructure being pieced together from disparate and disconnected systems. You may find yourself investing significantly in legacy infrastructure that is keeping you from evolving. An IT overhaul can improve business performance and drive efficiencies. Your institution should be able to spend less time on administration and maintenance, leaving more time to focus on innovative services that can engage customers and drive revenue.
