IBM | Cloud Kings in Financial Services: An Insider's View
25 January 2022
About the Series:
In this series, Celent interviews a diverse set of service providers, ranging from hosting services and infrastructure provides to platforms and consultants. We want to give an FI a sense of what a company offers, how it distinguishes itself, and what its perspective is on where an institution should focus its cloud efforts today. We’re intentionally non-evaluative in these interviews, incidentally; other Celent formats analyze and assess particular solutions. The format is straightforward: an interview with the cloud company lasting 20-30 minutes. While the full conversation is available only to Celent clients, any registrant can view a short introduction. These interviews let FIs get a sense of how a company thinks and what it offers today; these perspectives can then inform the institution’s cloud strategy.
About the Interview:
In this video interview, we sit down with Kiran Panja, Managing Director, Financial Services Digital Transformation at IBM.

IBM Cloud for Financial Services is a first of its kind - a cloud built to help financial institutions de-risk and accelerate cloud adoption for their mission-critical workloads and data sensitive applications. To address growing cybersecurity risks and regulatory complexity, security and controls are built-in to the cloud platform to help clients automate their security and compliance posture - across IBM Cloud services, their own workloads and partner apps and services — and monitor it through a single dashboard. The result is a secured environment, engineered for financial institutions to be able to lower the risk and cost of moving sensitive data to the cloud, modernize workloads faster and innovate with agility.
