“Can you imagine getting a server for 10 cents an hour? Today, cloud computing has made this a reality,” says Ashok H. Mittal, President and Co-Founder of The Beast Apps. The agile framework of the cloud has enabled many organizations to innovate faster and keep a thorough check on their capex and opex cost structure. However, cloud-enablement in the finance industry still is challenging due to the lack of additional infrastructure needed, the absence of which is hindering their efforts to launch products and solutions quickly into the market. Banks and other financial institutions in general, today face challenges in terms of cost, newer regulations and growing demand of information availability on-the-go. Tackling these challenges is The Beast Apps, a fintech company that provides finance companies, established and entrepreneurs both equally well, with the software infrastructure needed to build, deploy, and deliver innovative products and services to their customers in quick time, in a pay-as-you-go model.
