Efficiency as a service (EaaS) – The SWIFT community cloud
Over the past few years, application and service providers have made much of the concepts of Software as a Service (SaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (IaaP). But after all this time in the spotlight, a key question remains: have such hosted solutions really disrupted the way we do business and operate IT solutions?
Cloud has indeed brought elasticity for business requirements combining rapid implementation, cost efficiency and scalability. Since 2010, SWIFT has continued to evolve its offering, with cloud solutions enabling direct connectivity to the SWIFT Network to more than 1600 customers.
This session brings together four professionals from differing markets – a corporation, a stock exchange, a bank and a service provider – to discuss their varying experiences of the cloud, and how they see the future impact of hosted solutions on the financial world.
