Disruptive Start-ups and Innovative Business Models Support Cloud Adoption in European Financial Services

Industry will start to shift core services to the cloud within three to five years to harness emerging growth opportunities, finds Frost & Sullivan's Digital Transformation team

LONDON, May 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Cloud adoption in the financial services industry in Europe is finally picking up pace. Overcoming initial hesitation caused by extensive legacy infrastructure, lack of clarity on regulations, and concerns related to compliance and data security, the industry will start to move core services to the cloud within the next three to five years. Cloud can assist stakeholders with challenges related to high cost, lack of innovation and personalization in products and services, time to market, low consumer confidence, and lack of operational efficiency.

Cloud Platforms Powering FinTech in Europe, 2017, part of Frost & Sullivan's Digital Transformation Growth Partnership Subscription, finds that by providing access to relevant data for better insights, Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud enable faster and better-priced financial services. The use of cloud platforms also drives partnerships, use of application programming interfaces (APIs), different pricing models, and free offerings for consumers. Leading cloud platforms include Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform, IBM Bluemix, and Microsoft Azure.

"Start-ups using cloud at the core of their strategy are disrupting the way businesses are organized, forcing incumbents to rethink their cloud and data storage and usage strategies," said Digital Transformation Research Analyst Deepali Sathe. "Emerging opportunities include new business models, such as peer-to-peer (P2P) payments, and data analytics to launch innovative products and services that will increase convenience for consumers. As regulators step in with specific cloud-related guidelines, adoption is expected to accelerate."

Use of cloud enables access to a larger pool of data and new markets and business models will enable a variety of services and products, to drive several growth opportunities:

  • Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) will help channelize services like authentication and card and account aggregation
  • Cloud platforms will be fundamental to providing blockchain services
  • Payments is the largest market sub-segment and the P2P model, which is cloud based, will see massive growth
  • As the ecosystem evolves, the regulatory technology (RegTech) services market will take off as the catalogue of regulations for cloud adoption is expected to go beyond 300 million pages by 2020. Services such as anti-money laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) will be leading applications

"The cloud ecosystem is a complex web of stakeholders," noted Sathe. "Innovations across the board will make available the best possible solutions and competitors will compete to strike a balance between security and innovation, even as commoditisation of services occurs rapidly."

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it?

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
