Market Overview

A public cloud service is an IT model in which providers contribute to the availability of computing services like data processing and storage, develop-and-deploy landscapes, and applications to organizations and individuals via the public internet. Cloud computing has become a popular choice for banks seeking to reduce costs, increase flexibility, and accelerate digital growth. Adopting front-end and back-end operational models for digital banking has been made possible by cloud computing technologies in the financial services sector.

In addition, the rising popularity of AI and machine learning fuels its growth and global market expansion.
