Financial Services

Less cost. More resiliency. AWS Financial Services is How.

AWS provides financial services institutions across banking, payments, capital markets, and insurance the secure, resilient global cloud infrastructure and services they need to differentiate themselves today and adapt to the needs of tomorrow. Through continuous innovation, AWS delivers the most stringent security requirements in the world, the greatest breadth and depth of services, deep industry expertise, and an expansive partner network. Building on AWS empowers organizations to modernize their infrastructure, meet rapidly changing customer behaviors and expectations, and drive business growth.

AWS is working with financial services institutions around the world to help tackle the challenges to the global economy that COVID-19 presents. AWS has a set of services and solution that can help financial services organizations enable remote work, maintain the operational resilience of mission-critical applications, scale global market systems to process exceptional volumes, ensure that digital engagement offers an enriched and easy user experience, and optimize applications and environments for cost-effectiveness.

AWS services and solutions to quickly scale technology and infrastructure

Amazon WorkSpaces is a managed secure Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) solution that helps mobile and remote employees access the applications they need. Financial Services institutions need to meet security and data sovereignty requirements for desktop applications and mobile workers. With Amazon WorkSpaces, remote workers receive a fast, responsive desktop of their choice that they can securely access anywhere with an internet connection, anytime, using any supported device.

Amazon Connect enables financial services institutions to stand up a fully operational contact center in minutes and operate it virtually anywhere. Agents, supervisors, managers, and administrators can work at home and still perform all their normal contact-center activities. Agents can make and take calls. Supervisors can monitor and coach agents in real time, as if they were sitting in the same office. Managers can view dashboards, run reports, monitor service levels, listen to call recordings, and track performance, all from home.

AWS Grid Computing provides everything needed to quickly and easily build and manage HPC clusters in the cloud. Particularly during times of high market volatility, this enable financial services institutions to scale to peak processing demands at a moment’s notice, automate features to minimize manual processes, and lower costs with a pay-as-you-go consumption model.

These are just some of the resources we have available to support you. We will be updating this webpage, the Amazon Day One blog, and AWS Initiatives and Response to COVID-19 with new information frequently.
