Gearing up for Sibos (SWIFT* International Banking Operations Seminar), the team here is buzzing with excitement. Banks, FinTechs and software leaders from across the globe will soon gather in Sydney, Australia from October 22nd through the 24th to learn from each other on a range of technology topics. From embracing the decentralization of payments, open banking, and preventing financial crime - to applications of artificial intelligence and the future of banking – financial institutions, and those that support them, will discuss core issues impacting the industry.

The theme this year is ‘enabling the digital economy’ – and with digital transformation at the heart of what we do, a team of Red Hatters and partners will be there to help attendees with their technology considerations and dilemmas. We’ll be showcasing leading solutions for financial services and holding 1:1 meetings – so if you are there, please drop by to say hello.

It’s our goal to bring you into the conversation – so as the conference unfolds, we’ll post to this blog channel on a daily basis, synthesizing material and opinions shared in panels, presentations and participants. And you can also keep a pulse with #Sibos #RedHat as things happen. Stay tuned for the next post on the topic of the status and international impact of #blockchain.
