Jan. 6 (Bloomberg) -- Barclays Plc will reduce its IT spending by billions of pounds after developing its own cloud-based technology, the Sunday Times reported, without saying where it got the information.

Shaygan Kheradpir, the chief operating officer for retail and business banks, is introducing the new system across the bank’s other divisions, the paper reported without citation.
