The Cloud Acceleration Program (CAP) helps financial services firms establish a Google Cloud foundation safely and at speed.


How to speed the journey to the cloud for
Financial Services

We know that setting up a cloud infrastructure can be complex and challenging. And it’s especially true for the specific and unique challenges faced by Financial Services organizations.

Multiple teams and stakeholders across the organization — Engineering, Data, Security, Risk and not least, Compliance — have their own needs and requirements.

There are hundreds of cloud products and services to choose from making it challenging to find the right suite of products for your needs. This means that it often takes many months and even years to create and launch a cloud platform that’s fully integrated with your business.


CAP significantly shortens the time to build a safe and scalable foundation, so that banks can start utilizing the power of the cloud in months.
