    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."
