RED BANK, N.J., March 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CoreMatrix®, a leading cloud computing consulting company, today announced that the banking and financial services industry is demonstrating increasing confidence in cloud computing solutions.
A common business driver motivating many banks to migrate to the cloud is the need for better customer relationships. Customer-focused applications such as cloud CRM solutions with Social capabilities are a natural fit for financial institutions. Consumers spend so much time using social media, which produces a wealth of data that banks can use to target their offerings and increase personalization.
These trends, along with the combination of cloud computing benefits such as pay-per-use environment, on-demand infrastructure and storage, and unprecedented agility and speed to launch new services are giving banks the advantages they need to compete and win business.
CoreMatrix Co-Founder, Paul Nix, also pointed out that concerns over data security and customer privacy are diminishing as leading cloud vendors continue to prove they can provide secure services that meet regulatory requirements.
"In any industry and in any computing environment, data security is always a concern," Nix said. "But banks and other financial institutions are discovering that their data can be every bit as secure in the cloud as behind corporate firewalls. Cloud vendors are experts in security—their entire business model depends on it."
Nix also said that advances in cloud technology are giving customers the option of implementing solutions in private or hybrid cloud environments. In addition, banks are integrating customer-focused cloud applications with other systems they use, including Jack Henry SilverLake® Financial Systems.
