Mahmood Kapurwala, CEO, Avanza Solutions, was a part of the panel discussion “Banking in the Clouds”.

Cloud provides great cost advantages to companies achieved by avoiding capital and infrastructure expenses. Avanza Solutions has recently added Cloud Services to its range of advanced products and has started to offer its solutions on Cloud, like Ambit.
Kapurwala said at the panel discussion, “Banking in the Clouds”, “Banking is becoming more and more convenient with technology; today consumers can take care of their banking requirements from their homes, offices or on-the-go. Things like viewing account statements, summaries, transferring funds, paying bills, and topping up mobile connections can easily be done by a few key strokes on your computer or swipes on your smartphone.”
Kapurwala went on to say, “E-Banking has become something easily available to any institution; so acquiring this resource isn’t the challenge. The challenge is integrating it into the customers’ lives in such a way that it becomes a vital component; the trick is to engage technology in such a way that it simply transforms into an extension of their selves.”
