BBVA, a U.S. bank holding company from Alabama, has announced the creation of a new cloud-based tech solution as a result of its partnership with Amazon Web Services and Bloomberg.

The bank has been a RippleNet user since 2017 and a subsidiary of Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria since 2007. Now, BBVA is enjoying another major partnership that has provided it with a top-tier platform for the financial markets sector.

BBVA C-Fit is built with AWS and Bloomberg

The new solution, BBVA C-Fit, has been developed in collaboration with Amazon Web Services and Bloomberg to be used by the banks' Corporate & Investment Banking unit to work with equity markets.

BBVA has decided to make a bet on innovation so as to successfully work with large amounts of data and attract new customers.

The new cloud-based solution combines Amazon's technologies (Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service and Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka) and B-PIPE from Bloomberg.

BBVA C-Fit will enable the bank to not only manage market data, book risk and set equity prices, but also to scale-up these processes and add some crucial functions heresuch as mass pricing of the bank's products to distribute them via electronic channels.

Back in 2017, BBVA began experimenting with blockchain; apart from entering RippleNet, it also joined Ethereum Enterprise Alliance, Hyperledger and R3 consortium.
