“This transformation is hoped to reduce time to market for new digital products from 18 months to three to four months, while optimizing operating costs,” Global Banking & Finance Review reported about the company’s new cloud initiative.

Specifically, KIBS, which is owned by 12 regional and multinational banks, will use IBM Cloud Private to bring existing systems to the cloud while maintaining regulatory, security and availability standards.
