Enabling ‘Pay per Use’ in the new investment cloud platform

As asset managers face challenges around fee compression and growth in passive funds the focus is now on managing operational expenses to reduce costs. Cost pressures are also a driving factor in the movement towards consolidation in the investment industry where scalable platform(s) are consolidated to gain scale and enable growth.

Legacy systems pose a key challenge in this fight to contain costs as keeping them operational can be a significant expense.

If firms can adopt a business model where increased operational costs are incurred only if volume increases then this can be a key competitive differentiator from the current state.

This dynamic cost model is the new ‘Pay per Use’ model applied to the cloud services today by firms such as #snowflakedb.

The new model can be enabled by having a roadmap to build applications that use cloud native architecture.

Key features of this model as it relates to ‘Applications Software’ are :
a. Software licensing costs – fixed/tiered
b. Storage costs – dynamic
c. Compute (CPU/memory) costs – dynamic

Adopting the ‘Pay Per Use’ model will allow firms to make operational costs ‘elastic’ which can be key to stay competitive in this dynamic market.
