Swedbank Robur shares why SaaS is the right move to reach sustainability goals
Swedbank Robur, Sweden’s largest fund company, aims to become a world leader in sustainable value creation, alongside great fund performance. To achieve this, they have decided that moving operations to the cloud will help them manage costs and CO2 emissions while providing an incremental increase in data management capabilities.
Fredrik Ulfhielm, CFO Swedbank Robur, points out that you don’t just choose a SaaS platform for cost savings, but to have the right foundation in place for long term growth— and this is why they are considering our SaaS platform for their growing data needs. In this video he shares their motivations for choosing SaaS.
I think if you're a company today and not looking at Software as a Service or similar type of set up, you're probably going to have an issue a couple of years going forward. I usually play the game, what if I started the company today? How would it look? And there is no way, if I were to restart, reboot an asset management business where I would invest into my own computing capabilities.
