Mambu’s APAC MD Talks To Us

July 4, 2020

Recently, Mambu announced a global partnership with Google Cloud to accelerate customers’ move to cloud. Mambu customers can now launch and extend banking and lending operations in more countries on its cloud agnostic platform.

The partnership allows Mambu to operate end-to-end on Google Cloud bringing its SaaS offering to a host of new financial services institutions looking to make the leap to the cloud, particularly in countries with local data residency requirements. We had a chance to get Myles Bertrand, Managing Director, APAC, at Mambu, to talk to us about the current state of affairs.

Firstly, thank you for taking the time to talk to Asia Blockchain Review. We greatly appreciate your time and consideration in this matter. First and foremost, how are things with you and the company as we navigate this new normal?

The past few months have been a bit unsettling, but for Mambu it’s been fundamentally business as usual. We’re in a unique position in that we were already geared up to work from home, and we have the ability to deliver all of our solutions remotely, whether that’s project work, staff training, or even workshops and sales presentations.

All of our projects are currently being delivered on time and on budget. While there’s been some slow-down in the sales pipeline, we’ve been pleasantly surprised to see increasing interest from new areas as well.

Moving on to Mambu. As a leading cloud banking platform, it recently announced its partnership with Google Cloud. Tell us more about this. How does the SAAS paradigm fare these days in this uber-digital environment that we have these days?

We’re really excited about our new partnership with Google Cloud – it’s the next step in a strategic pathway for Mambu. We have always indicated we wanted to be multi-cloud by the end of 2020, in order to give our customers choice, and our partnership with Google Cloud is the next stage in our evolution.

Google is a clear market leader in certain geographies and having Mambu’s suite of products available via Google Cloud will particularly help in countries with data residency requirements such as Indonesia, where the latest Google Cloud Platform has just gone live.

In terms of SaaS, we’ll definitely continue to see a drive towards this service delivery model in all regions. Our SaaS model benefits customers with lower costs, greater scalability, access to new releases and upgrades, and reduced implementation time.

The entire Mambu banking platform and all services including the various banking and lending engines, process orchestrator, payment integrations, ecosystem connectors and supporting services is now available on Google Cloud. Mambu currently operates in over 50 countries offering core capabilities including current accounts, loans, deposits, mortgages and other financial products with a wide range of third-party services easily integrated into the platform. The companies began integration in February 2020 and went live in May 2020, collaborating with a customer launching a new digital bank in Asia Pacific.

Stay tuned for our second part of the interview with Myles soon!
