In March, Early Warning Services Chief Technology Officer Milind Nagnur told PYMNTS in an interview that “every financial institution (FI) is somewhere or other on the spectrum of transitioning to the cloud.”
There’s no resistance to doing so as banks realize that they need to deliver optimal customer experiences across digital and mobile applications with real-time responses, he said. Content must be ready and relevant to the end user, and at the same time, the FI must be careful not to sacrifice trust and security.
The cloud allows FIs to embrace the latest and greatest tech at any given point in time — no matter if it’s related to machine learning, quantum computing or the metaverse, he said.
