The real success of the financial institutions when adopting the public cloud comes with transformations across their organization to adopt new technologies, to develop new skills and to transform the workforce towards agility, performance and speed. The traditional processes that governs the enterprise are disrupted by the new approaches in the business, in the application developer teams and in the traditional IT. The intent of the session is to illustrate the impact of the Public Cloud Adoption at scale, to learn from the real life thru concrete examples, to share point of views and experiences with peers and partners. Some key takeaways of the session will be a way to evaluate the maturity of an organization in its cloud adoption journey, the current patterns of adoption in the industry from technical resources deployments, to the most advanced digital scenarios already implemented successfully in the public cloud. The session will introduce the “typical” journey to the Cloud for the financial institutions, leveraging the best of the cumulated experience.
