The Team & Project:
Cloud First strategy
HSBC have adopted a “Cloud First” strategy in order to meet the growing market demand for speed to market, delivery flexibility and staying competitive in an increasingly challenging marketplace. The strategy is driven by a focus on business value.
Our Cloud First strategy has well established design principles, focussed on extracting the highest value from the cloud market with its associated resilience and security. To support our ‘Cloud First’ strategy, we have established a “Global Cloud Services” (GCS) organisation within Group IT.
