Oxford University and Strategic Blue have joined forces to create a knowledge transfer partnership focusing on Fintech. Not only will this help businesses improve their competitiveness, but it also allows technology organisations to obtain knowledge, technology, and skills.
The Knowledge Transfer Partnership
Gaining and exchanging knowledge is of immense value in the Fintech industry, and the collaboration between Oxford e-Research Centre and Strategic Blue will go a long way in this regard. Cloud computing will play an increasing role of importance in our society, and it is always good to see players in the industry explore the boundaries.
However, consumers are facing a lot of difficulties when choosing the right cloud technologies for their specific needs. Additionally, there are a lot of different providers to choose from, even though the cloud market is still not as resilient as it could be. Through this Knowledge Transfer Partnership, new ideas will be created and applied to the development of a more robust cloud ecosystem.
This is not the first venture into the world of Knowledge Transfer Partnership collaborations for the University of Oxford. Associate Director – Innovation at the Oxford e-Research Centre David Wallom explained it as follows:
“Our work with the CloudWATCH and CloudWATCH2 projects has demonstrated the benefits of gaining a good understanding of the cloud ecosystem. Within this KTP, in partnership with Strategic Blue, we will extend quantitative methodologies by which we can better understand a particular use of cloud computing and who is the best fit provider for them. This has the possibility of transforming the current use of cloud and, we would hope, support the development of a complete market”.
Strategic Blue is a leading London-based Fintech business, and they feel they have what it takes to guide the cloud industry towards a better business model. Implementing fair resale and trading contracts will help increase market confidence for cloud buyers. Additionally, the company also offers financial cloud brokerage services, which can benefit from the University’s KTP experience to apply this technology to a wider industry.
Knowledge Transfer Partnership is one of the UK’s largest graduate recruitment programmes, which allows the selected Data Science Research Associate to be mentored by industry experts and academic professionals. Any outstanding Ph.D. graduate interested in learning more about innovative data products and the cloud market should get in touch with Strategic Blue regarding this open position.
