Banking On The Cloud

Cloud computing has ushered in a revolution in the way companies develop and manage their IT services in recent years. We believe it can help solve our customers’ challenges. Cloud computing has gone mainstream – most companies now use a cloud-based service and many increasingly do so as their core approach to IT. Customised cloud solutions enable companies to rapidly develop and deploy tailor-made IT products and services, without the costs and risks associated with traditional IT development. These cloud-based solutions are flexible enough to address specific needs, so businesses don’t have to make do with a one-size-fits-all approach. Cloud allows companies to start small with new services and ideas – then scale them up rapidly once the concept is proven.

PwC Global 100 - Software Leaders

The state of the software industry appears relatively calm. On the surface, that is. The well-known trends—cloud, softwareas- a-service (SaaS), mobile devices and consumerisation of IT—are making their own individual waves for software vendors. Dive beneath the surface, however, and you will find a strong undertow created by the combination of all these forces, pulling the industry in new directions. It’s a multiplier effect that is redefining how software vendors develop, market, sell, distribute and support their products.
