Sponsored by: Temenos

Focused on:

  • Banking
  • Cloud Computing

Date: 27 November


Time: 2PM (SGT)/ 5PM (AEDT)

The banking sector has been amongst the slowest industries to migrate core processing to the cloud. This transition can lead to many key benefits including agility and innovation. With regulators increasingly recognizing the positive and economic benefits and impact of using cloud technology to digitize the bank more financial institutions are encouraged to start moving their core banking application to the cloud.

The webinar will discuss the growing trends in banking and the cloud as a technology benefit for customers. Primarily focusing on the Australian and Hong Kong markets, the conversation will also include the APAC region in general, as its clear cloud maturity is a matter of regional acceptance and readiness and that banks are approaching these services in many ways.

Register today to hear Trevor Clarke from Tech Research Asia, Ross Mallace from Temenos and Connie Leung from Microsoft Asia, talk about:

• Regulatory or supply barriers to the adoption of public cloud computing services
• Current and future likelihood of banks using cloud services for core platforms
• If there the appetite for adoption of public cloud services
• What role do fintechs play
• Access to Innovations in cloud

The webinar serves as a perfect guide on how the use of cloud will shape the banking landscape in Asia Pacific. All participants will receive a recording of this session.
