Hybrid-cloud Technology For Financial Services

Red Hat's Tim Hooley, Chief Technologist for Financial Services, EMEA will be the keynote guest speaker on Hybrid-cloud at the FS Club Dinner on the 18th September. 

Financial Services, like almost every other industry, is in the midst of a disruption ignited by new technologies, regulatory direction and age demographics. Increasingly, commercial success depends on out-innovating your competition in order to attract and retain customers with your platform or ecosystem. It is important, therefore, that your platform or ecosystem is built on a base that facilitates open-innovation, makes 'Day-2' operations and future growth easy, and doesn't get in the way of your business' ambitions. Is using licensed software from a vendor the answer? Maybe, but are you confident that the vendor will innovate as quickly and in the direction that your customers need? Is outsourcing to a Public Cloud provider the answer? Maybe, but why have so few mission critical workloads moved to the public cloud at large FSI players? Tim will explore Hybrid Cloud, a refreshing alternative approach that takes the best of open-source, coupled with rigorous automation to optimise the delivery of your innovations to customers and ultimately your commercial success.
