COVID-19 Provides Wake-Up Call for Cloud Banking

The COVID-19 crisis has put a spotlight on the outdated tech infrastructures of many traditional financial services companies. As cloud computing has matured, banks and credit unions have hesitated to embrace the technology, worried about security, unsure of the benefits and unwilling to hand over control of their data.

The pandemic is expected to accelerate a shift to the cloud, not only because many of the concerns have been addressed, but also because fintech and bigtech organizations are built around modern technologies that provide them a competitive advantage.

To understand the potential of cloud technology and the options available to financial services firms of all sizes, we are joined by Tom Eck, global chief technology officer at IBM and Spiros Margaris, Venture Capitalist and Founder of margaris ventures.

In this episode, they discuss how cloud computing fits into the entire digital transformation journey and why cloud computing is more than just a new technology.
