Cutting-Edge IT Support To Navigate The Rapidly Changing Financial Services Industry
- Audit/compliance assistance
- Timely support
- Information risk and security management
Technology has long played a key role in the financial services industry. Today, however, a number of new and rapidly accelerating trends are emerging that promise to usher in an entirely new paradigm. Information technology can no longer simply be an “add on” at the periphery of the business, but rather must be deeply embedded at its core. These critical issues facing financial institutions today are affecting their entire business. The industry continues to address regulatory reform, financial reporting and implementation costs of effective technologies. These challenges are forcing financial institutions to rethink business strategies.
Those companies that are able to capitalize on the capabilities and opportunities that this changing environment presents will be well positioned to enjoy a distinct competitive advantage.
Several of the factors Blade Technologies incorporates into its solution delivery are one; the clients’ demands for more and faster information, greater transparency, and improved risk management. Another is that the perceived value of data has fundamentally shifted. The globalization of the workforce, which has enabled around-the-clock schedules, the acceptance of open source-based strategies and the use of multiple procurement partners, is also an important factor. Collectively, these changes have laid the groundwork for the emergence of a new business and IT model that will likely upend conventional thinking about the roles and capabilities of IT systems.
Blade Technologies’ focus on the financial industry is a distinctive business practice that encompasses audit/compliance assistance, timely support, and information risk and security management along with our traditional consulting services. Our integrated knowledge enables us to help our clients design solutions that work. Our focus is driven by our philosophy of Making IT Matter.
