AWS for Industries
Goldman Sachs, an established financial services firm, transforms its operations on AWS
Goldman Sachs is a leading global financial institution that delivers a range of financial services across investment banking, securities, investment management, and consumer banking to a large and diversified customer base that includes corporations, financial institutions, governments, and individuals.
Goldman Sachs uses Amazon Web Services (AWS) solutions to transform the way it operates internally—from automated digital forensics to digital supply chain and procurement—and externally by serving customers through innovations such as the Goldman Sachs Financial Cloud for Data. The latter is a suite of cloud-based data and analytics solutions for financial institutions that integrates with AWS Data Exchange. It helps financial institutions securely integrate data alongside Goldman Sachs’s curated financial markets data to improve decision making.
“One of the main focuses for us is data management. It’s critical to everything we do in financial services. We’ve been re-platforming our core data architecture onto AWS, enabling us to deploy at scale, take advantage of the latest cloud technologies, and really increase the speed and scale that we can operate our business. AWS allows us to achieve the kind of business velocity that we can’t achieve on premises.”
