This Podcast is a source of important information, for senior professionals, within Capital Markets firms. Enabling them to understand, some of the benefits and uses of new technologies to empower better, strategic decision making.
In 2020, the Covid 19 pandemic had a huge impact on most financial organisations. Which resulted in a major shift in the working culture of most firms. Not only within the capital markets, but on a wider scale. After years of resistance by many companies, in allowing staff to work from home. Remote working suddenly became the norm. In 2021 a number of Companies have already made the decision to continue home working, or have opted to introduce a hybrid operation. Utilisation of today’s technologies to enable remote working has made this possible.
Cloud is a central component in achieving a working operational capability and capacity, within a centralised or a decentralized environment. Solving operational needs in a secure environment, enabling resilience, business continuity and helping to meet regulatory compliance. However, with decentralisation, there is a requirement for increased bandwidth. Which can be provided by the increased capacity delivered by 5G. But this also brings the need for improved cybersecurity.
In this podcast Alasdair Hodge, a leading cloud engineer and expert in architecting cloud based solutions, discusses in easy to understand language, these issues as well as;
The benefits of Cloud for business resilience
Why firms should invest in secure cloud architecture.
The decision making process that firms will have to undertake.
