Modernization Journey For Banks With CDWT

Successfully altering operations for the world’s top financial organisations


Comprehension of the Digital Disruption

Banks and financial services companies are seeking to optimise their infrastructure. According to the Third Annual Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Index, a survey of the financial services industry’s top reasons for modernising its IT infrastructure revealed that, while cost is less of a factor, more respondents in the financial services industry cited cost savings (31%) as a greater driver for cloud than the global average (27%). What banks must consider is how digital disruption can assist them in retaining and attracting new clients.

What impact does IT Modernization have on Banking Customers?

With a digitally updated infrastructure at its heart, banks can swiftly adjust to market shifts and create exceptional customer experiences, such as real-time payments, therefore defining themselves as innovators and leaders in meeting their customers’ and organization’s demands.

A successful digital transformation initiative for financial institutions must centre on four priorities:

Engaging customers with distinct experiences that are tailored to their individual financial requirements and objectives.

Empowering staff inside the firm with solutions that may make accessible, comprehensive information about individual customers readily available, while satisfying important security and regulatory requirements.

Enhancing Internal Operations via synchronized procedures and data-sharing democracy

Transforming goods using open and networked systems and predictive digital processes in real-time

To be successful in this new environment, financial institutions will need to collaborate with an experienced modernization leader who understands their present status and the complexity involved, and who can guide them through the transformation process with a shared goal in mind.

With digital transformation and application-centric managed services, CDWT can bring concrete value to your bank.

Modernization Challenges for Banks

Deciding to take the first step towards core banking modernization by building a strong infrastructure foundation on the cloud is one aspect but doing it successfully and cost-effectively, quite another. Among the greatest issues banks confront are the following:

The million-dollar question is whether cloud - public, private, hybrid, or multi-cloud - is the greatest match for your financial ecosystem. IT decision-makers depend on a complete PoC that details how, when, and which workloads to transfer. Increased operational efficiency, quicker time to market, and the introduction of new goods and services are major success markers for cloud adoption initiatives.
To ensure cloud readiness, a comprehensive approach is required, since the conception process that is restricted to apps and workloads is often insufficient. Enabling your technical staff to embark on your cloud adoption journey with the aid of seminars and sessions on cloud best practises is essential for the ecosystem to run without interruption after the transition.
Every IT team's worst nightmare is managing many suppliers for various application components, cloud platforms, monitoring, etc. For financial institutions, client demand is of the highest importance, and they want an escape route. It is only conceivable if you have an experienced cloud partner who can assume this responsibility.
Technology executives at banks are most concerned about penalties up to billions of dollars, assaults on extremely sensitive financial data, and the dangers of an open banking system. The problem of ensuring security, privacy, control, and compliance with worldwide legislation and data protection laws must be addressed regardless.

Utilizing established blueprints, frameworks, tools, and migration methods is a need for any bank. Nonetheless, cloud adoption is useless if it does not include using new technology, like as artificial intelligence and machine learning software, to provide more relevant services amid shifting markets.

Your bank may still be assessing the benefits and drawbacks of shifting to the cloud.

The following “use cases” will assist your key stakeholders in making a choice.

It is time for banks to cease investing in future legacy technologies and transition to cloud-based core bank processes. The advantages of moving core banking to the cloud include infrastructure savings, scalability and agility on demand, security and availability, and future-proofing the staff. Depending on their functionality and version compatibility with cloud, mainframe based applications that support core banking will need a target disposition assigned to them - Rehost, Replatform, Refactor, Rearchitect, retire and Revisit.
Not only do banking CEOs, COOs, CIOs, and other business leaders believe in cloud-enabled, data-driven solutions, but they are also investing heavily in them to deliver highly personalized, digital customer growth campaigns and experiences, enhanced customer lifetime value initiatives, and profitable revenue growth outcomes. They want speed, scalability, and decreased risk, and the age-old reluctance to embrace public cloud for essential financial systems no longer exists. They are shifting away from rigid, inflexible operating models with on-premise, outdated IT systems that fail to fulfil business requirements while consuming hefty IT resources and generating ever-growing IT technical debt. This presents a chance to acquire a "competitive advantage" in a crowded, digital banking industry by satisfying customers' increasingly demanding expectations. Modernization of core banking systems becomes a strategic requirement for all types of institutions.
Transformation in banking includes technology adoption, such as cloud adoption, as well as business process improvements, such as hyperautomation and RPA, which enable banks to reduce their time to market, operational complexity, and assist them in delivering exceptional digital customer experiences.
