Overview: In the ninth installment of DataTalk, an interactive monthly forum of the Institute of International Finance and knowledge partner the Oliver Wyman Forum, experts from IIF member firms, leading tech firms, and other partners and officials explored the challenges and opportunities of adopting cloud computing.

With its recent emergence and prevalence in discussions across sectors, cloud has become a fast-approaching necessity, rather than just a nice to have, in many industries. Cloud, a foundational technology, has the power to dramatically transform the financial services industry, act as a catalyst for innovation, and reduce negative environmental impact. Although many barriers to cloud adoption remain, such as data localization requirements and talent gaps, this discussion solidified cloud’s vital role in digital transformation for the financial services industry. 

The series includes two leading global experts as co-chairs:

Douglas Elliott, Partner, Oliver Wyman, and co-head of the Oliver Wyman Forum's Future of Data initiative

Tom Wilson, Chief Executive Officer, Allianz Ayudhya
