For financial organisations operating in the UK there is another challenge on the horizon; namely the planned overhaul of the regulatory landscape. With companies set to become answerable to multiple regulators, there are growing concerns over escalating costs and the additional resources required to comply with the new systems.
So how can Azzurri help?
Control costs: Evaluating the existing infrastructure can help organisations sweat existing assets and meet the challenges of consolidation.

Centralise global operations: Multi-national organisations headquartered in the UK can consolidate all global networking through one organisation responsible for coordinating with multiple international carriers.

The centralised route also enables an organisation to impose control over the acquisition of network infrastructure driving up overall resilience. Find out more »
