Tailoring hybrid cloud for banking – Designing the right mix for innovation, efficiency and growth

Recognizing the cost and flexibility advantages of cloud, banks have been early adopters. Cloud’s ability to bypass the binding limitations of legacy systems has motivated banks to embrace cloud in their front, middle and back offices. 

However, despite successfully implementing cloud to improve specific functions and processes, most banks report an unwillingness to embrace cloud holistically. To gain all of the economic, strategic and financial benefits cloud affords, cloud’s footprint needs to extend further.

This white paper explores the specific intentions, opportunities and concerns of banking leaders around the world regarding hybrid cloud adoption. It identifies alternative scenarios and provides a practical set of recommendations to accelerate and strengthen bank strategies for hybrid cloud.
