The future of cloud banking & payments | A roundtable discussion

Global banks and financial institutions are migrating to Cloud to accelerate their payments modernization and to stay ahead of the curve, particularly in the current space where digitization has become a prerequisite to scaling up payments services.

Cloud-based payments are a key enabler for banking agility and innovation, yet certain challenges including security, regulatory compliance, and control are slowing down the MENA-based industry from completely adapting the technology.

OPEN TO SENIOR REPRESENTATIVES FROM BANKS & FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS

MEA Finance, in cooperation with Oracle Financial Services, invites you to a roundtable discussion to be held on the 3rd of November 2022, at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Dubai. The key discussion on “The Future of Cloud for Banking and Payments” aims to unravel how Cloud-based solutions provide universal access to payment schemes and efficient management of substantially increasing payment volume across multiple timescales. The discussion will also present insights on different Cloud infrastructures that meet the distinct operational requirements of banks and financial institutions.
