The current financial system involves both some old and out-of-date methods and procedures and some that can happen at the click of a button. While some processes/tasks are usually time-consuming and glitchy, some are absolutely frictionless. An acceleration in customer appetite for digital experiences and rising competition from fintech and other digitally savvy companies are pressuring banks to modernize their core platforms and embrace new technologies for real-time transaction processing and quick product releases. In response, banks are adopting modern technologies such as the cloud, a critical enabler of digital transformations and a potential solution to reduce technical debt.
Banks: time to modernize
the core can no longer be put away
- Provide seamless customer experience
- Support line-of-business technology investments
- Leverage the value of all data-structured and unstructured
- Build IT flexibility, maximising the time and costs associated with traditional IT maintenance activities.
- Accelerate access to new technologies, such as artificial intelligence, blockchain and in memory databases like SAP HANA
However, banks have not been as aggressive as they should be and more than 70% of the banks have not even embarked upon this cloud transformation journey. Why?
While digital transformation creates major opportunities for organizations, it also introduces a new dimension to the traditional view of risk. Banks do not want to compromise on compliance or security requirements in the quest to provide frictionless experiences to the customer. At the same time, they do not want to be their old rigid selves just to avoid transformation risk.
Can the rush to provide frictionless digital experiences cater to the difficult compliances & security requirements?
Does risk mitigation have to become a disabler in providing memorable customer experiences?
Do you need to make this trade-off?
If you ask us, should you make this trade off, we’d say NO.
Excellent customer experience and Risk Mitigation are equally important.
A risk-proof acceleration to the cloud is the need
The question is not whether or which apps to move to the cloud; it is more about
how to move them without risk.
For most banks, the challenges of moving to the cloud has
little to do with developing new cloud-native applications
and everything to do with ensuring the perceived risk mitigation robustness of their current environment, it the cloud
Banks that avoid or proactively address transformation pitfalls will be more likely to achieve a successful digital transformation without timeline and cost overruns. Furthermore, banks with the help of an able partner, that regularly review their approaches within the areas of people, process, and technology can identify areas for improvement for future large-scale transformations.
Experience vs Risk: It is not a ZERO sum game
