GFT – A Nomination to Confirm Our Success


All of us at GFT are delighted to have been shortlisted for The Global Business Tech Awards ‘Tech Company of the Year’ (large), in association with Don’t Panic Events.

The Global Business Tech Awards recognise, reward and celebrate all things technical in the business world and our nomination demonstrates our continued growth, tech expertise and delivery achievements.

Transformational change

We work in some of the most complex and risk averse industries and organisations in the world, transforming not only the technology and systems that underpin them, but their cultures too. 

By collaborating with partners and FinTechs, at GFT we have been able to continually develop ground-breaking solutions that defy expectations and help our clients not only become agile and innovation-hungry, but keep them one step ahead of their peers.

Driving innovation in risk-averse industries such as banking, is far from easy. However, at GFT we utilise our deep experience to engage some of the world’s most fast-paced, complex and tightly regulated industries and organisations.

As a cloud-agnostic partner, we collaborate to identify the best sustainable solution that will support the client’s long-term strategic goals. Before proposing the specific cloud adoption framework of a particular cloud solution provider (CSP), we undertake a thorough evaluation process.

Addressing challenges across industries 

As well as solving the challenges faced by specific clients in bankinginsurance and manufacturing, we’re often tasked with helping to change the mindset of the entire organisational culture as they seek to embrace cloud. In the words of our Global Head of Cloud, “Firms must put aside old structures and forget the way things ‘have always been done’.”

To overcome this, we employ DevOps by default, embedding agile processes into our clients’ businesses by:

  • training ALL stakeholders (beyond IT) in DevOps, ensuring everyone’s ‘speaking the same language’
  • implementing ‘big-room planning’ with all stakeholders (including senior leaders), making the wider business an extension of the Tech team, in order to accelerate decision-making and development processes

At GFT, we have a history of challenging conventional thinking and proving people wrong. By combining the spirit of a challenger brand with the scale and expertise of a multinational, we’re successfully delivering ambitious projects that are transforming some of the world’s largest organisations.

And there’s more to come…

We’ve had a supercharged last 12 months at GFT that has enabled us to grow our core sector of banking and to further diversify our client base. We intend to continue this trajectory with plans in place for further accelerated growth in 2022, and exciting opportunities involving innovative technologies across all sectors. 

So stand by for more announcements of our upcoming achievements! 

All the winners of The Global Business Tech Awards will be announced on Thursday 5 May 2022.
