For most industries , the first concerns about moving data to the cloud started years ago . As a result , we have seen a widespread shift to multicloud architectures in the last decade as organizations have learned to deal with this technology in search of greater agility to keep up with both the growing expectations of customers and the demands of their rapidly changing markets .
However , for highly regulated financial services companies , the reality is different . Only recently have the benefits of the cloud begun to outweigh the security and integrity arguments used to keep many of their operations ’ workloads in on-premises environments . Only very recently , we have been able to track an accelerating shift in the IT departments of banks and insurance companies to the cloud .
Today , given the variety of services in the market , most of these organizations use more than one platform and have workloads distributed across multiple environments . These multi-cloud strategies with multiple clouds combined provide the agility and scalability that finance sector companies need to stay ahead , innovate more quickly and continuously optimize .
While it is true that choosing multiple platforms offers greater flexibility to financial organizations , it is also a fact that each cloud implemented in a multi-cloud environment equally increases complexity and adds a new source of data to monitor . In other words , this means more work for IT teams to deal with infrastructure management .
freeing up professionals ’ time and energy . In this case , time and energy can be reinvested in driving Digital Transformation and delivering the high-quality , safe and efficient experiences that customers want .
Indeed , having more time available for innovation is essential . Financial institutions should keep our money

These multi-cloud strategies with multiple clouds combined provide the agility and scalability that finance sector companies need to stay ahead .
Not by chance , numbers from a recent independent survey conducted by Dynatrace show that IT specialists in financial organizations spend almost half of their time ( 42 %) on manual and routine tasks dedicated only to keeping the infrastructure running .
In this context , IT teams must have a more sustainable approach to managing environments and networks , safe and accessible , and that also requires them to sustain and develop a constant flow of innovations .
Whether customers are checking their account balances or transactions , requesting a loan or transferring money between accounts , users expect a seamless digital experience . Otherwise , they may switch to the competition .
