Modernise or Die: Updating Business Critical Applications to Remain Top of Mind

22nd June 2022, Europe 11:00 - 12:30 CET

Are you on the journey to Hybrid Cloud?

Balancing innovation and regulatory compliance can be challenging. On top of that, several industries are dealing ongoing issues due to the pandemic, the shortage of skills, and an increase in security breaches which is slowing down modernisation efforts. So, how can adopting the right architecture approach help speed up innovation and meet customer needs?

The Pan African Banking and Financial Group, Attijariwafa Bank, adopted a hybrid cloud platform to help advance the digitisation of its banking operations, bring new services to customers, in a secure and flexible environment. Overall, it helped the bank streamline and integrate front-and back-office processes to modernise business and IT operations.

With an increase in security breaches / hacker attacks etc., companies have to balance speed/modernization/agility with security considerations and complying to regulatory requirements. So how are you ensuring that security and regulatory compliance requirements are met?

Join IBM and a select group of industry experts to discuss how to meet customer needs, deliver innovation at scale, and build and manage applications on an open hybrid cloud.
