One of Australia’s largest financial institutions is making a major move towards Software as a Service (SaaS). This move will affect up to 50,000 inboxes, resulting in the most significant commitment to cloud computing by a financial institution in the world. This change signifies a new era in IT – will your organisation be part of it?


“The decision by this institution to move their messaging service to a SaaS environment is indeed a significant one. There is a lot of risk involved in this move and their management of it will be watched keenly by other financial institutions and the media,” commented Kareem Tawansi, CEO of software development provider, Solentive Software.

“This action will provide many decision-makers with the confidence to make a similar move for their own organisations. If a major financial institution is able to overcome the security hurdles they face, as well as the issue of data sovereignty, then any organisation will have the capability to follow,” stated Kareem.
