Westlake Villiage, CA, United States, 2014/07/17 - According to Cloud Computing Expo’s website: “94% of enterprises are using some sort of XaaS software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.” But this number doesn’t tell the whole story - SOFTPRO.de. NASDAQ & LSE: KFX
An October 2013 report by the Aite Group, LLC, Cloud Computing for Banks: Evolution or Revolution?, shows that banks are adopting cloud solutions, but for non-mission critical applications. According to the report, the more complex the application the more likely it will be deployed on-premise versus in a public cloud. This obervation is also confirmed by a survey of "Bankmagazin" a German Finance IT media, publishing a rerport about the willigness to adopt cloud computing in June 2014.
SOFTPRO’s SignDoc ESignature Software Suite is successfully deployed by banks worldwide who are leading the digital banking transformation. These financial institutions are using SignDoc to transact electronically regardless if the approval process is completed online through a standard browser, or esigning in-branch with a tablet.
“Large organizations, including banks, are constantly evaluating their technology and must modernize their legacy systems, sometimes dating back 20 years,” explains David Albertazzi, Senior Analyst and author of the report. “One of the recommendations made in the report is for banks to become familiar with cloud solutions by starting with non-critical systems and non-sensitive banking activities such as office productivity, email, and procurement.”
The Aite Group report also addresses the US and European regulatory issues surrounding cloud computing services, highlights the banks’ perceived risks, and identifies the differing attitudes towards the cloud depending on the deployment options: public, private, community or syndicated cloud.
