How to Harness the Value of Cloud for Scale and Agility

Subscribe to our newsletter

As financial services firms recognise the value of data and benefits of data-led processes, many are undergoing digital transformations that put data at the heart of their operations and decision making. For most, this is providing competitive edge as data, and the insights it brings, enrich decisions and improve productivity – but not all digital transformations are equal.

A white paper produced by A-Team Group and commissioned by Snowflake, How Banks Harness the Value of Cloud for Scale and Agility, reviews the problems of poorly conceived and executed transformation strategies that tend to take a short-term view, and discusses the benefits of longer-term approaches that can deliver better business outcomes. Typically, these transitions are based on outsourcing transformation to the cloud and using the distributed infrastructure of cloud services to accelerate data strategy in an environment that provides scale and agility.

Overall, the white paper details what value can be extracted from data, explains the downsides of poorly planned digital transformations and how to avoid such pitfalls, and moves on to discuss why cloud-based solutions work best, and how then can help you accelerate business goals.
