Challenges in Murex digitalization
1. Data security
Security is a major concern for capital market firms, banks, financial institutions on cloud computing. In an on-premises environment, security can be established with data encryption, firewalls, secure ID’s and so on. But, when it comes to the cloud, there is no guarantee that the data is completely secure and cloud can be open target for cyber-crimes.
Although, with reliable security measures in place financial institutions have started adopting cloud computing for core operations, and this is not surprising considering the vast and uncertain regulatory landscape. But, firms need to secure sensitive intellectual property, efficiently. With consumer’s data and transaction data that travels globally, firms even face legacy information technology challenges.
However, network firewalls and application firewall built by cloud service providers and the encryption let us create a private dedicated network connection.
2. Clarity over data storage laws and regulations
Financial regulators and data governing laws have turned their attention to the cloud and digitalization to supervise online storage services that hold information from the world’s biggest banks. Global financial institutions are becoming increasingly reliant on the cloud by using it to store customer account data and their banking system while the leading supervisors are concerned about the results of the bank collapsing.
But, regulations are coming up with hard data security laws for cloud and digitalization to overcome penetration and misconduct.
3. Customization and standardization trade-off with legacy models
Customers are running businesses with current organizations by technical methods, culture and process on digitalization and in the cloud when the operations grow wider and they shift a significant part of their infrastructure and/or applications to a third party. Cloud and some institutions are concerned about this level of dependency on the vendors. Future changes in vendor’s policies or frameworks can add to operational complexities for individual users.
