Digital transformation is continuously disrupting industries, particularly financial services organizations, in an unprecedented way. Why? Two key reasons: customer demand and business agility. The monolithic databases that enterprise organizations have relied on for decades for core business operations cannot support the requirements of the financial services industry today. To be competitive in the market, FinServ applications must be immediately consistent, continuously available, able to scale out and in on demand, and agile enough to maintain compliance with changing regulations. While legacy database infrastructure powered much of the banking industries’ applications to date, to do so many organizations have accumulated significant technical debt. As forward-thinking enterprises move to the cloud, experts like you are seeking solutions to reduce technical debt while increasing business agility. So what can you do to transition more seamlessly to the cloud?
Scale Out. Still SQL.
