IBM Cloud, an ecosystem for financial services

IBM Cloud, an ecosystem for financial services
IBM wants to become the base cloud platform for financial institutions. It is not just a stated goal, or a sort of manifesto to present itself on the market, but an all-round project that puts the cloud at the center and the partners in direct contact with the group. The arrival of BNP Paribas as a team, one of the main financial institutions at European level, is confirmation of the goodness of the strategy implemented, such that IBM is a candidate to be more than just a service provider.

What the group is developing is a real partner ecosystem called the Industry Cloud Advisory Council, including all financial institutions that have already adopted IBM Cloud for Financial Services. Bringing all customers together (including entities of the caliber of Bank of America) means creating a pole of interest of enormous magnitude, whose interests can be put together to face together, in synergy, the challenges that the sector has responsibility to undertake.

We are driving innovation in the financial services sector and we are able to collaborate with an ecosystem that records a continuous entry of technology providers, from small startups to industry leaders. We will further strengthen our collaboration with IBM, as IBM Cloud for Financial Services allows us to continue our migration path to the cloud and to transfer mission-critical projects in complete security, meeting the regulatory standards of the sector.

The major banks at the international level, therefore, may experience a “beta release” steps ahead of IBM research, and was thus able to take advantage of the innovations that the laboratories of the group will have to propose from time to time.

the meaning of The challenge is clear: in dance there is a supplier-customer relationship, but a true partnership coordinated to ensure that the synergies of the collaboration can generate value for all actors involved.
