Virtual Panel: Cloud in Asset Management Operations

Join us for a panel discussion covering the potential that cloud-enabled technologies hold for asset managers, emerging innovation, and how operations and technology teams can define their own cloud-first strategy.

In an industry where it is increasingly difficult to compete, the bread and butter for the asset manager of the future will lay in the sophistication of their data toolset and the ability to enable revenue optimization and cost reduction. It is clear that the cloud holds the promise of unlocking that potential—through scalability, accessibility, and sheer computing power.
