IBM Cloud for Financial ServicesTM is a solution platform and ecosystem program built on an industry-informed framework of controls, architectures, and operations that mitigates systemic risk in using public cloud for mission-critical workloads with client-sensitive data.

In today’s world, in which technology transformation is a top priority, financial institutions seek to drive improved efficiency and customer experience in an increasingly competitive market. With the IBM Cloud for Financial ServicesTM institutions can balance these priorities including risk management and regulatory oversight making sure compliance is met.

It enables delivery against regulatory imperatives through a consistent set of embedded controls, defined as part of the Control Framework, meeting the needs for chief risk officers (CROs), compliance officers (CCOs), information security officers (CISOs), and data privacy officers (CPOs).

Key considerations and benefits:

  • Achieve continuous risk management and compliance: Benefit from a pre-configured controls framework. IBM has assembled expert C-level councils from industry leaders and regulatory advisors to develop industry standards for the control framework that exceed any single set. IBM tools enable real-time monitoring and reporting to reduce the risks of manual updates.
  • Speed innovation with partners: Access a trusted ecosystem of vetted apps and services. Each meets stringent compliance and security standards, so that you can start using them right away.
  • Safeguard data and reduce risk: get complete data control with a zero-trust approach – spanning compute, containers, databases and encryption — for total data privacy assurance.
  • Operate with agility anywhere: Build and deploy anywhere with IBM Cloud SatelliteTM. Your business can grow without expanding operations, and you can monitor workloads more efficiently.

PTL Limited offers a diverse range of bespoke IT solutions, cutting-edge technology, and a team of highly qualified experts. PTL works with you to understand your business strategies and implement solutions to take your business to the next level.
