How partnerships can enable digital transformation
Optimizing Collaboration for Financial Services Firms
Financial services firms increasingly trust cloud-based solutions that are more agile, cost-effective, connected and efficient than legacy systems.
In a recent webinar, David Gurlé, formerly of Symphony, and Steven Quick, Principal Solution Architect – Financial Services with Amazon Web Services (“AWS”), discussed how many financial institutions are working to transform faster while also meeting ever more stringent compliance requirements on data safety, security and transparency.
Solving the paradox: agility with transparency and trust
Financial services firms are in the unenviable position of catering to sophisticated customers that expect the highest standards of privacy and security while also complying with stringent regulations that require absolute transparency on-demand whenever needed, often for transactions that occurred years ago. At the same time, rigid processes and legacy technologies can inhibit the digital transformations underway at most firms.
The financial sector faces a unique paradox. It needs both the utmost transparency but also the utmost security (and of course compliance). How do you solve this? David Gurlé
From “chats” to communication-powered financial services workflows
Always fascinated by an industry he sees as the epicenter of the world economy, Gurlé realised that in the digital era, the seemingly basic “chats” occurring between – and within financial institutions – and their clients were in fact complex messaging and conversation workflows that serve as the central nervous system of the industry and the economy. Symphony continues to evolve from a secure chat platform into a critical market infrastructure provider where deep workflows are seamlessly integrated and connected, increasing efficiencies across transaction lifecycles, client lifecycles and more.
