Date: Thursday, October 22, 2020
Time: 08:00 PT (Los Angeles) / 11:00 ET (New York) / 16:00 BST (London) / 17:00 CEST (Paris)


Banks are building their modernization strategy around the movement of their payments services to the cloud, which offers the benefits of scalability, agility, and cost containment under the ‘pay as you use’ model. A cloud migration strategy may involve one or several of the following approaches in combination:


  • Re-Hosting (“Lift and Shift”) – Lifting the applications stack and shifting it from an on-premise location to the cloud
  • Re-Platforming – Making a few further adjustments to optimize use for the cloud
  • Re-Factoring (“Re-Architecting”) – Building applications from scratch
  • In this webinar, we explore the efficiencies of moving payments to the cloud and methods for achieving them while addressing these frequently asked questions:

    1. Should banks look at cloud modernization as a catalyst for transforming their payments business?
    2. What are the potential risks of migrating payments applications to the cloud?
    3. Would banks benefit more from moving their entire payments value chain to the cloud or only targeted workflows?
    4. What is the thought process for deciding between a Greenfield and commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) build out?
    5. How is the cloud bringing innovation into the payments value chain for enterprises?
    6. How can exponential technologies like blockchain, AI or machine learning help with innovation?
