Event Details

Nowadays, building societies operate against a disruptive landscape of competitors, regulators, threats, and other agents of change. Leading by example, CSI’s partnership with Darlington Building Society has become a compelling case for using cloud modernisation as an optimal platform for growth.

Many financial services providers in the UK are considering re-platforming to multi-cloud environments, accelerating meaningful digital transformation from the inside out. Not without risk, however, there’s a reason cloud adoption is delivered through a rewarding “journey”, which has become a moniker for the kinds of ambitious change that enterprises need in order to remain competitively relevant.

CSI is proud to host Darlington’s COO, Chris Hunter – in conversation with CSI’s own CTO, Nick Westall – for an insightful reflection on what it takes to achieve effective cloud modernisation in today’s competitive, tightly regulated marketplace.



  • Introductions
  • The “story” of Darlington journeying to the cloud
  • “Lessons” – a candid forum on the outcomes, pain points, and successes
  • Conclusions
  • Questions
