Red Hat Financial Services Institutions Digital Boardroom
Accelerate Innovation – automation for financial services
14th September 2021 – 4:00pm GMT
Is Automation any longer an option if you want to keep up with the Markets Demands?
Operational complexity has dramatically increased through enterprise adoption of multi-cloud, hybrid IT architectures, DevOps continuous integration and deployment lifecycles and container and Kubernetes platforms for production applications. As applications are deployed using microservices and workloads are more distributed, the end-to-end application lifecycle is dependent on many interconnected compute, network, database, storage, source control and related resources.
IT operations teams are unable to keep up with the demands of today’s complex hybrid environments.
Join SCC and Red Hat where we will share findings from research conducted by the IDC showed that Financial Services customers realised significant benefits by adopting an enterprise automation platform:
● 68% more productive IT Infrastructure teams
● 68% faster deployment of storage resources
● 135% more applications developed per year
● 25% more efficient security teams
● 53% reduction in unplanned downtime
