This dialogue is by invitation only, and will observe Chatham House Rules. It is designed as a collaborative, constructive discussion between the private and public sector to accelerate FSI cloud adoption in Singapore.

About the Roundtable:

The financial services industry is one of the most highly regulated, and many financial services institutions (FSIs) have found it challenging to make the move to the cloud. Moving workloads to the cloud would reap productivity dividends, cost savings and other benefits, and as a result, many policymakers are working to rectify this policy gap to ensure companies have an easier time adopting new technologies like cloud computing.

Join us as we learn about the progress on the industry’s journey to the cloud. Representatives from FSIs and cloud providers will share their developing practices and the Monetary Authority of Singapore, Infocomm Development Authority and Association of Banks in Singapore (ABS) will update us on the regulatory environment, including updated MAS guidelines for outsourcing for the financial industry.
