Overview 

Open technology’s momentum across cloud, IoT, mobile and big data has accelerated beyond our wildest dreams. Just when it feels like we have seen it all, along comes another year like 2015, where open technology innovation and adoption are growing like wildfire. On the other hand, the FinTech and payment sector in particular is going through a rich period of innovation. Incidentally, this causes the explosive growth in FinTech startups cloud adoption, “Cloud computing and FinTech reinforce each other and together they are a huge driver of high speed innovation in financial services… Investments into FinTech startups recently quadrupled, growing from just over $3 billion in 2013 to over $12 billion in 2014”. (Source: CGI Consulting 2015)

 

According to a 2014 Goldman Sachs Report, Cloud accounted for 5% of the $300 billion enterprise IT market, will climb up to 11% by 2018. One of the key players in the cloud platform battle is OpenStack, an open source project focused on building software to create infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) clouds. OpenStack initially cut its teeth in the service provider market but is now spreading to the enterprise with the backing of most of the key enterprise vendors. This broad industry support is important to OpenStack, as one of its key goals is to create an interoperable platform that can become a de facto standard in a highly fractured cloud market. However, OpenStack for the enterprise is still a work in progress…

 

In the 2015 Executive Cloud Forum, we are going to bring you two panels – one is to look into the interoperability cloud through the OpenStack & Open standards, and the other one will discuss the challenges & opportunities of “Cloud+” for the FinTech among the providers and the early adopters.
