“The financial services industry is undergoing major digital disruption. The risk from financial tech startups and the emergence of the ‘age of the customer’ have refocused financial services organizations efforts and strategies towards embracing digital transformation,” said Sean Catlin, CTO at Atos. “What the financial services sector will look like in 2020 is being defined by moves that are being made now. How well financial services organizations embrace key cloud building blocks such as the software defined data center in private and public deployment models will define whether they exist in 5 years, or are if they are Uber-ized. The biggest barrier to cloud adoption is security.”
