Financial Services Technology Consulting

Make Information Technology Your Competitive Advantage

Financial Services Organizations are Now Technology Providers

Information technology is the crucial enabler for financial services companies.  IT is no longer a “support” or just a “maintenance” item on the budget.  It is now the critical part of servicing customers, protecting customer data, and gaining a competitive advantage.  An IT Consultant, like Synoptek, understands that technology is more than just infrastructure and devices.

 

Synoptek considers technology as a “tool” used to reach business goals and objectives.  However, this “tool” has multiple interdependencies and dozens of moving parts and is continually changing.  Information Technology requires constant monitoring, governance, patching, upgrading, and evaluating.  Synoptek’s 500 employees and 20 years experience will help simplify information technology for you.

The Most Important Goal for the Financial Services IT TeamSynoptek Cyber Security for Financial Services Companies

The primary objective for IT departments in Financial Services firms is to support the “service goals” of the organization.  This means providing an IT environment that supports multiple types of devices in a secure and responsive IT framework.

The 5 Key Components of a successful IT Department in a Financial Services Organization:

  1. Meeting client service demands by providing ways to share information securely and reliably.
  2. Meeting user service demands by using services such as Microsoft Office 365 to promote multi-location productivity and collaboration.
  3. Maintaining the Organizations professional image through the use of leading-edge technology solutions.
  4. Promoting the use of a comprehensive set of security services exuding confidence that all customer data is secure.  Including use of filtering, anti-virus, malware, firewalls, cloud-security tools, network anomaly detection,  mobile device management, malware detection, and security monitoring services.
  5. Staying current with technology changes, service updates, IT training, IT staffing, and new security threats.

IT Consulting Services Driving Performance, Security, and Value

IT infrastructure is probably more important to the financial services industry than any other.  Government regulations, compliance, risk management analysis, and profits are generated and managed by having an efficient and effective IT operation.  Complex regulatory changes, new product launches along with mergers and acquisitions have left many financial services organizations with a complex legacy IT infrastructure resulting in a poor performing back office environment.

As much as it may be needed, most financial services organizations do not have the staff, time, or skills to keep up and manage all of the components of their IT infrastructure.

CFO’s and CIO’s in the financial services industry are seeing the compelling cost savings they can realize using cloud storage, remote monitoring and management and Help Desk Services they are beginning to re-evaluate their IT infrastructure improvement projects.  And to do this they are looking towards managed services companies like Synoptek to provide the answers.
