GFT is deeply committed to developing cloud and cloud-based solutions (including big data, analytics, Artificial Intelligence Machine Learning (AI/ML), agile, and DevOps). The company continues to invest in recruitment, training, and certification of cloud and data engineers on a number of platforms. Moreover, it continues to perform cloud migrations as well as native cloud POCs, innovations and developments (for e.g., blockchain for payments and cloud-based Consolidated Audit Trail (CATS) regulatory reporting). GFT’s partnership ecosystem is extensive and strongly partnered with both AWS and Google Cloud Platform in the cloud for the financial services market space. For instance, in 2016, GFT partnered with AWS, where AWS is a provider of IaaS and PaaS cloud solutions, and GFT leverages AWS services to support clients in cloud adoption and migration, in order to reduce costs and improve the business agility. Furthermore, GFT is building out its own Azure capability.
