Using the cloud to unlock a bank’s innovation

Old IT infrastructure and operations were unable to keep pace with agile application teams at a major European bank.

Together, we embarked on a major cloud transformation that enabled new ways of working while lowering costs.

A joint team of McKinsey and client experts designed a fresh and flexible approach to cloud.

What we did:

  • Mapped the current infrastructure landscape and end goal: a hybrid cloud and two public clouds
  • Designed new operating model, teams, migration plan and providers
  • Created plan for evolving agile teams toward full DevOps capabilities
  • Piloted the new approach and kickstarted the transformation
