"Banking customers today expect secure access to their funds, without downtime, and delivered through the modern experiences they receive in other aspects of their lives," commented Thomas Kurian, Google Cloud, CEO. "We are proud to work with such a storied institution as Lloyds Banking Group, which helped to create—and continues to redefine—the next generation of financial services."
