Financial institutions are tired of the proliferation of technology innovations. They also by now realize that rapid, iterative software development is not enough as it addresses a need already replaced by a new one.
What is required is a holistic approach to seamlessly integrate development and operations via automation, standardization and resource management, which is the mantra for futuristic financial institutions. When they have reached this stage of stability they will realise that new innovations are often an offshoot of existing ones making it easy to integrate when required.

This White Paper deals with security and privacy of cloud computing and SaaS applications. Segments of cloud computing (i.e., SaaS, PaaS and the physical facility) are being secured and protected today. Moreover, the security best practices are typically superior than those provided by most small and mid-size organizations because of their limited technical resources and budget constraints. The cost, return and extensiveness of the aforementioned security best practices are spread across multiple customers and would be a challenge to be afforded or deployed by an individual small and mid-size organization on a stand-alone basis.Download White Paper
