Sim Tshabalala, Group CEO of Standard Bank commenting on Standard Bank selecting AWS as it’s preferred cloud provider this week:
“Our vision is to be Africa’s leading financial services organisation and to achieve this we have chosen to work with the world’s leading cloud. For Standard Bank Group to remain a leader in African financial services, we recognize we need to adopt a cloud-first approach to our business. AWS Cloud technology will create a springboard for Standard Bank Group, helping us to rapidly roll out our digitisation and data strategy to better cater to customers whose needs are constantly evolving. The combination of AWS’s rapid agility and high levels of security, combined with Standard Bank’s customer obsession and desire to constantly raise the bar, will allow us to build Africa’s financial services organisation of the future and to be positioned as more than a bank.”

Ron Kalifa OBE commenting on Network International’s impending IPO and his appointment as Chairman:
“The global payments sector is undergoing a period of rapid change. Businesses have to demonstrate deep local market expertise together with sophisticated and innovative technology solutions. Network International has a long successful history of combining both these factors.”
