Adopting Work-From Anywhere
Being into financial services, customer profile data, portfolio etc. are extremely confidential and critical. There are areas in which we have never thought of remote management. Regulation was not allowing to access data from outside, closed and protected networks.
Overcoming many traditional and constrained regulations was done with collective efforts of industry. Regulators also acted fast.
Acceleration of digitisation of onboarding, subsequent services and risk management helped us to continue the business as market demands
There are times only 20 people were on-premise and the remaining 3000 employees worked remotely.
Enhanced security, increased the frequency of DR drills and made application device agnostic.
