IBM, Atos Partner To Help Financial Businesses Migrate To Cloud


IBM has partnered with Atos to help boost the digital transformation and cloud migration initiatives for banks and insurance companies in Atos Cloud Centre of Excellence.

Finance is one of the most regulated industries and, therefore, one of the most reluctant to move to the cloud. The centre aims to increase security and regulatory compliance for financial services companies worldwide that wish to advance their workloads to the cloud.

Atos and IBM said the centre would provide technical and financial services expertise for clients, backed by dedicated Atos professionals trained on IBM Cloud for Financial Services, IBM Cloud Paks and Red Hat OpenShift.

Atos is taking the lead by offering migration and modernisation of customers’ mission-critical workloads to the IBM Cloud for financial services using the platform’s built-in security and compliance protocols designed to help clients address compliance risk and deal with regulatory barriers to their digital transformation efforts.

The IBM Cloud for financial services features security capabilities including confidential computing technology and Keep Your Own Key encryption designed to help financial institutions retain control of their data. The core of the service is the IBM Cloud Framework for financial services, which provides a set of pre-configured security and compliance controls explicitly built for and with the financial services industry.

Also part of the centre is Atos OneCloud, a set of 10 offerings to help clients accelerate migration to the cloud. Launched last November, OneCloud featured consulting services, multi-cloud orchestration across private and public clouds, application development, cloud artificial intelligence, machine learning, and edge solutions.
