Cloud transformation in the financial services sector

Some financial services providers are already well ahead of the curve in their use of the cloud. What can others learn from the pioneers for their own cloud transformation? Download our study now.


Cloud use is still very heterogeneous in the financial industry. Some companies in the industry are already far ahead, and already relying on the public cloud. A private cloud-only strategy is still, however, widespread at many financial services providers.

For our study, we surveyed those involved in cloud transformation processes in the financial services sector in Germany on implementation. We describe

  • where the pioneers stand regarding cloud use,
  • what distinguishes the laggards from the pioneers,
  • and which aspects are critical to a successful cloud transformation.
In doing so, we address the specifics of cloud transformation in financial services. One thing is clear: there's no getting around using the public cloud in the future.
