    How is the cloud participating in the transformation of financial information services?

    "The cloud" is the new "go to" place when institutions revamp applications and infrastructure; everybody loves the scalability, the "share-ability" and the "pay per drink" model.  But are institutions putting all the necessary tools into place to protect their assets in the cloud and to integrate them with "private assets" efficiently?

    • Are Australian financial institutions feeling pain when it comes to the costs for cloud resources and security infrastructure?
    • How does hybrid (“private" and “public") cloud work?
    • What’s the journey been like? Have there been operational and financial benefits of going to cloud?  Any nightmares?
