The supervisory authorities, e.g., NBP, EBA, forces financial institutions to prepare detailed periodic reports. Reports are prepared in particular applications, which in practice are used by bank employees for a short period. Depending on the type of report, it may be, for example, three days per month or twice a year.
Some regulatory reporting applications use cloud infrastructure, where you pay for the actual use of resources. However, this is a costly solution for SaaS product owners. They must keep stable applications on standby, which are only used for a few days, and at the same time ensure continuous access for many supervised institutions (in multiple instances).
Therefore, you need a solution that allows you to manage cloud infrastructure more effectively, ensuring access to the proper application 24/7/365 and a positive experience for the end user.
