Cloud-native? Cloud washing? Let’s decipher the terminology around cloud in the investment management industry.

Thomas Phipps of Cutter Associates and Win Franke of Enfusion weigh in on the real differentiators in cloud-based SaaS solutions.

Key takeaways:

  • Cloud-native software is not the same as on-prem software that has been lifted and shifted to the cloud.
  • While both have potential benefits – including cost savings and risk management – solutions built natively for the cloud offer better efficiency and scalability than migrated cloud-based software.
  • As vendors jump on the cloud bandwagon, equivocation on the meaning of cloud-native is common (known as “cloud washing”). Buyers need to be vigilant.
