Migrating the right workloads to the cloud is a powerful enabler of faster, more agile innovation for financial institutions. The measurable benefits for banks include a quick, intuitive experience for customers across the payments ecosystem.

Banking executives can learn more about cloud and hybrid IT at “Architecting cloud solutions for an intuitive payments experience,” a free webinar hosted by CGI and Finextra. The webinar is scheduled for 10 a.m., ET on Tuesday, Sept. 7, 2021.

Banks that integrate historically siloed processes through the cloud stand to gain a long list of advantages, including sustainability, resource elasticity, increased efficiency and lower costs. True migration is not merely putting payments systems in a new environment, but changing the entire way payments work within a bank.


During the webinar, a panel of industry experts will discuss topics including:

  • Digital transformation and the customer experience

  • Deploying cloud solutions within the payments space

  • Running payments solutions in the cloud

  • Ensuring payment solution architecture is fit for business

  • Vendor perspectives to architecture and partnerships

  • Creating additional value through analytics or embedded finance

  • Mitigating risk and defining success
