IBM Cloud Satellite & Financial Services Workloads

In a recent client conversation & demo, the topic focused on how to run Financial Services workloads across a hybrid cloud environment. The compliance issues alone prohibited their progress, and they didn’t know how they could deliver these workloads in many locations around the world.

I talked through how IBM can help:
1) Build, deliver, and manage applications across a hybrid multi-cloud environment
2) Bring the best of cloud wherever it’s needed – in any location – and still experience a simple “as a service” experience
3) View common compliance across the entire platform

I felt the topic (and demo) was worth sharing here. In it you will see IBM Cloud Satellite in action, along with Security & Compliance on IBM Cloud, OpenShift, and Azure.
