“The pandemic has left corporate banks grappling with significant loan losses and reduced capital investment but an increased expectation to economically accelerate new digital services,” said Oracle Financial Services Executive Vice President and General Manager Sonny Singh in the release. “Our first three corporate banking cloud services provide a clear path for corporate banks to migrate critical business functions to the cloud with reduced cost and increased digital scalability. This will provide a better experience and capital clarity for their corporate clients.”
Treasury functions have had a lot on their plates in recent times, with new factors to juggle.
According to PYMNTS, solving the cash management issues will come with first admitting the problems, which are often exacerbated due to companies not switching to digital. Less than 14 percent of chief financial officers (CFOs) are using digital technology in their operations. And as many as 91 percent say they lack visibility when they work.
The visibility that many of these CFOs need now often takes place on the cloud. The pandemic has shown the viability of the cloud for helping to keep finances flowing at a time when people could not be in the office.
