Whitney McDonald 10:18:49
Nice. Properly, thanks once more for being right here. And for sharing a bit of bit about your background. I’m excited right here right now we’ll be speaking about cloud migration. And naturally, together with your background and within the function that you simply’re in right now. I’m certain that it’ll be an awesome dialog. So with that, why don’t we simply begin right here with the place we stand right now with cloud migration? What are you listening to from financial institution shoppers? Is there nonetheless this large push for cloud migration? What are what are you sort of following and listening to out of your shoppers? Yeah,

Rodrigo Silva 10:19:18
completely. So so with the there’s extra confidence than by no means proper? The general public clouds has has now a stronger presence in, in all over the place in banking, tons of funding by the hyperscalers. Financial institution see price reductions and innovation being key for for the banking world. These days, adopting cloud is a should. We we see future, the way forward for banking is within the cloud. Our newest economics economist impression research confirmed that about 51% of bankers consider banks won’t personal any information middle in 5 years, as a result of they are going to be shifting a lot of the functions to the general public cloud. That’s that’s extra so in North America than wherever else. We noticed out of the respondents that that 36% of banks are prioritizing, shifting their home core banking to the cloud, in comparison with 26. Banks. globally. We additionally noticed that the 79% of North America respondents mentioned that multi cloud technique might turn into a regulatory prerequisite within the subsequent 5 years, in comparison with about 60%.

Our shoppers are, are contacting us shoppers which might be right now on on prem options, operating on their very own information facilities are shifting to the cloud, both their very own cloud suppliers or shifting to our SAS operation the place we handle the hyperscalers on behalf of our shoppers a

Whitney McDonald 10:21:09
couple of issues to interrupt down there, after all, nice stats, so thanks a lot for placing some numbers to it, however perhaps like a break down a bit of bit what these conversations seem like when a shopper approaches Temenos and says, You already know what, I do wish to migrate to the cloud. What’s that the first step? In fact, it’s it’s costly, and it may be a giant enterprise. So what are these conversations initially seem like?

Rodrigo Silva 10:21:33
It’s all about the advantages, proper that our shoppers will see with the cloud. And at first, what we have to perceive is the banking surroundings as we all know has modified. Proper? We’ve got demanding clients which might be searching for companies 24/7 Um, we have now the rise of recent rivals, proper, you’re speaking about fintechs, you’re speaking about new banks, you’re speaking about bass suppliers, you’ve gotten regulatory pressures out there, we have now very powerful nonetheless very powerful market circumstances with rates of interest being excessive. So all of that put pressures on the banks to turn into extra progressive to alter the methods they’re doing issues. Additionally, you’re new efficiency metrics and efficiency drivers, proper innovation, buyer centricity, operational efficiencies, threat, compliance, synthetic intelligence, AI, is in all places. So so there’s a whole lot of pressures within the banks to do issues in another way in rethink the best way they’re working right now. And cloud brings precisely that with Cloud, they’re going to see price efficiencies, they’re going to see and be capable to present enhanced buyer expertise. They’re gonna have scalability benefits, adaptability benefits, you’ve gotten, you’ve gotten a whole lot of automation, inside inside the cloud world deployment velocity, the hyperscalers have invested quite a bit in safety, enterprise agility. So once more, the cloud is the place the banks will be capable to compete and thrive within the digital world. You have a look at the wave of cost suppliers and Neo banks on the market, they usually’re constructed from scratch on the newest cloud know-how. And within the incumbent, which might be utilizing nonetheless these legacy methods that spaghetti methods as we joke, are, are actually not suited to to the calls for of this digital period. So so it’s fairly frankly, a race in opposition to obsolescence. The transfer to cloud will give the banks the agility, they should go to market with new merchandise and, and cater to their shoppers wants, and actually future proof their know-how stack.

Whitney McDonald 10:23:48
Yeah, you simply talked by a couple of advantages. In fact, the aggressive aspect, you talked about that fintechs are constructing on Cloud, they’re probably not having to do this elevate. So from from the good thing about speaking by the advantages, and the necessity to keep aggressive, is certainly key right here. So perhaps we will speak about what these issues are. There’s clearly the professionals that we simply talked by. Nevertheless it’s not simply as simple as okay, we’re going to maneuver to the cloud now. So how do you actually contemplate price? How do you contemplate what it’s going to ivolve a time dedication? What does that sound like while you’re while you’re discussing that together with your shoppers?

Rodrigo Silva 10:24:24
Yeah, you’re completely proper. Proper. It’s it’s a whole shift to a brand new set of various practices. You’re speaking about automated testing, design, a extra of a buyer centricity mannequin, that the necessity for accelerated manufacturing environments, shorter supply cycles, larger high quality, so So the effective establishments, the banks, they must be ready for it, be sure that they’ve the precise sources in place to tackle the world of cloud, in addition they must be sure that they’re working with with distributors with companions, they’ve a broad and deep set of cloud native banking capabilities. Similar identical requires that we simply talked about for the banks you’ve gotten internally with their very own sources, it is best to anticipate that out of your distributors and out of your companions, proper. So having having confirmed cloud supply confirmed is scalability, confirmed migration credentials expertise doing so. So after I look internally at 10, home windows, proper, we have now expertise of working with 700 SAS shoppers right now, they’ve already migrated or began in our SAS surroundings. So huge scalability, proper, we’re a corporation that has been doing this for for a few years now. We’ve got each on premise shoppers and SAS shoppers, and in a whole lot of our on prem shoppers is X have really applied the our functions on their very own cloud suppliers, proper, that being AWS, or your or, or what have you ever, as a result of we’re an software that day. That’s that’s cloud agnostic. So once more, deep expertise, understanding of the regulatory surroundings, understanding of the safety surroundings, ensuring that you simply’re compliant, and having a few years in our case, 30 years working with with financial institution IP is vital for, for our shoppers to to achieve success. And they need to be contemplating all of that after they’re making their transfer to the cloud.

Whitney McDonald 10:26:28
Quite a lot of the conversations that we have now is about that vetting course of and ensuring that the distributors that you simply do choose have those self same, whether or not it’s safety and even simply values and sort of what you’re attempting to perform all line up. So yeah, that positively resonates. I do know that you simply additionally simply talked about tendonosis cloud agnostic So perhaps we will speak a bit of bit extra about the place terminos suits in. So if in case you have a shopper that as mu is shifting towards the cloud, what does that seem like for terminos? How do you guys assist alongside that journey? Yeah,

Rodrigo Silva 10:27:01

So one single platform that caters to retail, small enterprise, company non-public wealth, we have now an finish to finish channel resolution that does each the digital piece on-line banking, but in addition originations onboarding, we have now options for fraud monitoring AML. So funds hubs. So we, in all these options are cloud native, and in in cloud agnostic, which means that we may also help our shoppers in that journey into the cloud, not solely with their core, but in addition with these additionally supporting options that revolve across the core. And the composability of our functions is essential, as a result of when a shopper is testing the waters with the cloud, they might not be keen to maneuver all the platform directly.

Whitney McDonald 10:29:30
Which makes it much less daunting, proper? You don’t need to do it you possibly can sort of do it piece by piece and see the way it works after which decide okay, what’s the subsequent piece that we should always transfer over? You don’t need to do it multi function fell swoop.

Rodrigo Silva 10:29:45
That’s completely appropriate. So you possibly can take your time. And relying on your small business technique and your threat urge for food, and the way comfy you might be with the transfer, you possibly can resolve which items to maneuver first. And once more, that’s these are the kind of conversations that we like to have with shoppers. I’m very lucky that in my function, I’ve an opportunity to talk with many banking executives and speak to them and with them about, you recognize, what are their urge for food to maneuver to cloud? And we confirmed some stats earlier on it, everybody’s speaking about it. And the query is, how shortly can we transfer? And what ought to we transfer first? And who’re we going to be working with and we’re glad to see that there’s a whole lot of belief in what we have now been in a position to present the market. And, and we’re seeing a whole lot of curiosity in, on this transfer.

Whitney McDonald 10:30:32

Rodrigo Silva 10:30:56
Yeah, so what we’re seeing is the market is altering. And so is the best way the banks devour know-how, proper? They’re shifting to SAS, we finish with a SaaS providing, you might be principally allocating all these high quality, the obligations round managing the infrastructure, managing the safety, the the monitoring the daily operations, the shut of enterprise, the updates the upgrades, placing that within the arms of a of a vendor, proper, a corporation like like dominoes on a cloud surroundings. So we’re seeing them transfer increasingly that may be very, it’s a mannequin that has been in place, particularly in North America for a few years. However we’re seeing that increasingly all over the world as properly. That took a bit of longer to adapt and to undertake that information. Name it the the SAS mannequin or simply placing With all that duty within the arms of a vendor, now, what we’re seeing as the subsequent wave is, is de facto is Cloud Analytics, proper the quantity of name it what the banks can do with all the info that may be accessible within the cloud, as a result of cloud means that you can permits the scalability to essentially transfer super quantity of information in and in with the velocity and scalability that you want to, to have the ability to handle that.
