CANADA – Today, IBM announced that Home Trust Company (“Home Trust”), a federally regulated trust company based in Canada, has completed the migration of its IT infrastructure to IBM Cloud. By migrating to the cloud, Home Trust now has access to flexible and scalable computing services on demand for a cost-effective solution.

By adopting IBM Cloud, Home Trust can also gain access to storage, networking, servers and other cloud services, while maintaining management over its platforms and applications.

It ensures that new solutions are immediately useable, rapidly deployable and that we can ultimately offer a superior customer experience.”
