The work will be carried out in two major phases, defined based on the study that B3 carried out on the characteristics of its systems and the needs of our customers. In the first phase, with a horizon of up to five years, systems that are currently more adaptable to this environment, such as vehicle liens, Exchange Clearing, Banco B3, insurance, branch, among others, will be migrated to the cloud.

In the second phase, after the first five years, B3's partnership with Microsoft and Oracle will focus on the development of new technologies for migrating systems where there are no already built and ready-made solutions on the market today.
