The financial services industry is transforming rapidly and the COVID-19 pandemic has tested financial services firms’ resilience in unforeseen ways. Phenomenal growth in digitisation, convergence of industries, and blurring of product constructs is reconfiguring the global financial system. To prepare for the next normal, financial services CTOs and their teams need to ramp up technology innovation, modernise their platforms, and increase technology productivity to unlock success in digital transformations.
Containerisation and Kubernetes have become inextricably woven into the digital transformation imperative. Cloud-native infrastructure enables banks and financial institutions to leverage the latest technologies and development practices, such as containers and microservices, to build and deploy applications faster and more efficiently. This can help banks innovate more quickly and bring new products and services to market faster.
