CSI selects Microsoft Azure as a platform for its public cloud solutions
By Edlyn Cardoza
Computer Services, Inc. (CSI), one of the leading providers of end-to-end FinTech and RegTech solutions, announced it is working with Microsoft to rebuild its solutions in the public cloud on Microsoft Azure. Working with Azure allows CSI to seamlessly integrate and execute its long-term strategic vision for cloud solutions that provide financial institutions and global organisations with scalable technologies to meet evolving customer needs, increase revenue and improve speed to market. Solutions developed through the collaboration have already been adopted by customers such as Iowa-based Marion County Bank.
CSI’s public cloud offerings create more dependability than the traditional data center model by providing digital solutions that reduce on-premises mainframe dependencies. The company’s solutions allow financial institutions and other organisations to improve product speeds and responsiveness to evolving customer demands. CSI’s cloud solutions also ensure greater agility, flexibility, and scalability while mitigating cybersecurity risks.
“The shift toward digital adoption and experiences has forced financial institutions to respond with new solutions across digital banking, payments and other critical areas that meet heightened demand for access and flexibility,” said Vijay Reddy, Chief Technology Officer of CSI. “Collaborating with Microsoft Azure to establish cloud-based solutions and applications across our product suite allows us to provide clients with leading-edge technologies to help them more rapidly respond to unique customer needs.”
Technological enhancements integrated into CSI’s public cloud solutions include AI technology for aggregating and analysing customer data, enhanced customer-facing experiences, and improved security and compliance services.
“CSI’s commitment to build cloud solutions on Microsoft Azure aligns with our ambition to be the preferred cloud partner of fintechs, by accelerating their growth using the power of Microsoft and its ecosystem. I’m pleased about the opportunity to further the digital transformation of our joint customers in the financial services industry,” said Tom Feher, FinTech Director, Microsoft.
CSI’s cloud initiative has included extensive customer consultation to ensure a smooth transition for the company’s hundreds of existing clients throughout the country. Multiple CSI clients have already transitioned to solutions such as CSI Cloud Services, a modernised and holistic IT infrastructure to secure and simplify digital services, and WatchDOG Premiere, the company’s cloud solution for sanctions screening.
“Our move to CSI Cloud Services provides peace of mind based on CSI’s expert management and Microsoft Azure’s scalability and security. The CSI and Azure integration provides us with a strong combination of services that allows us to better serve our account holders,” said Brent Gaulke, Marion County Bank’s Vice President of IT and Operations Officer.
Advancing CSI’s technology infrastructure with Azure simplifies processes for current and future clients while also enhancing data security. Organisations that embrace CSI’s public cloud solutions will enjoy a more responsive platform that delivers compelling value and greater system reliability as industries migrate to cloud-based services.
“Establishing our public cloud platform with Microsoft expands on our long-term strategy to build solutions that deliver value to our clients and their customers faster, easier and at greater scale,” said David Culbertson, CEO and President of CSI. “We are excited about the additional opportunities that cloud integration presents. Working with Microsoft Azure directly supports our growth initiatives, reinforces our mission of customer service, and allows us to reach new customers while supporting our current client base.”
