It is a relatively young department within the Platforms & Technology (P&T) unit that successfully drives the development of this strategic and highly automated Azure based cloud platform, one of the largest deployments within Europe. The PCP community consists of highly motivated professionals sharing one ambition to make the Platform the best public cloud implementation within the financial services sector and empower our consumers in their IT transformation journey.  The third generation of the platform has been released last year and apart from new migrations of ABN AMRO and Subsidiaries, there is currently a lot of focus on the transition of existing workloads to this latest version (FSCP 3.0).

The publicated role is placed within the Enablement pillar within the Public Cloud Grid. The Mission of PCP Enablement is to maximize the adoption of Microsoft Azure (FSCP) within ABN AMRO Bank. We enable our stakeholders to use modern Cloud Technology and contribute to ABN AMRO’s Vision: Banking for better, for generations to come.
