Cloud technologies are a catalyst for global change in the financial sector; offering the same advanced levels of operational flexibility, developmental agility, and transformational abilities that challenger banks and niche fintechs make such successful use of. DSP cloud services are tailor-made to enable financial organisations to level the playing field and develop new services rapidly to meet new customer behaviours and needs. We are the leading UK provider of Data Platform Managed Services’ and the UK’s leading Oracle Platinum Partner.
Technology is causing beyond recognition disruption in the financial world. Non-traditional players and agile challengers are gate-crashing the market in increasing numbers. As they do, they are re-shaping, elevating and then satisfying new customer expectations.
The cloud drives the competitive advantage. Industry studies find that companies adopting cloud computing, on or off premise, experience 45% higher growth than companies that don’t.
The fundamental question before embarking on any sort of cloud strategy – total, partial, private or public – is what can it do for your business? The Cloud Security Alliance conducted a global survey in March 2015 to explore strategies and motivations among financial organisations.
Banks moving to cloud services are finding that they can reduce their budget spend on IT infrastructure from 75% to 26% and reduce the time taken to procure a new server from a few weeks to 90 minutes.
"Digital transformation touches every function within business and demands end-to-end process integration. According to Sunday, many companies are not interested in incremental improvement—instead they want complete integration across the entire enterprise to transform their business."

"Tier One institutions are very much focused on reducing costs, getting to market faster, whereas the Tier Two and Three banks want to roll out services like trade finance that they wouldn’t be able to do alone."

"Reduced total cost of ownership, reduced time to market and increased infrastructure flexibility are some of the key reasons Finance organisations are moving into the cloud."
