Cloud computing

Over 90% of financial services firms want to migrate to the cloud in the next four years. What are the key factors behind this industry transformation?

Our take on cloud computing in 60 seconds

Many firms cite cost, scalability, and data integrity as the top three drivers. While most have long-term ambitions for the cloud, 25% are aiming to use it for the majority of their market data needs within the next year.

However the most exciting potential of the cloud lies in its ability to power the advanced analytics and machine-learning tools needed to deliver AI solutions – and unlock the potential for greater alpha.

The cloud offers fast, on-demand access to large volumes of data, cost-efficiently. As a cloud user, that means you can validate experiments quickly – avoiding the lengthy approval and implementation processes and costs that previously held back innovation.

The key to unlocking the benefits of the cloud lies in the data inputs. Reliable, high-quality data is essential for successful innovation.
