The next chapter for APAC financial services: Build adaptive enterprises with cloud-native (Webinar – English)

As financial services organizations in APAC advance, they must contend with familiar forces that continue to disrupt the industry: growing legislative requirements (including open banking), fierce competition (including incumbents and new entrants), and accelerating customer expectations. Financial services organizations in APAC sit at a crossroads, where they will either: 1) minimize further disruptions and follow established processes that have evolved, or 2) continue disrupting their own status quo, encouraging adaptiveness and tech-driven innovation to grow.

Join Red Hat’s guest Charlie Dai, Principal Analyst at Forrester Research and Pierre-Yves Bouillaud from DBS Bank, as they discuss the role of cloud-native adoption for financial services organizations in APAC.

This discussion will include findings from Forrester’s recent study including:

  • The importance of cloud-native adoption as a way of meeting disruption with adaptiveness to drive growth.
  • Three critical challenges hampering cloud-native adoption in financial services organizations today.
  • Choosing a multicloud container development platform to accelerate cloud-native adoption and digital transformation.
