Injecting agility and flexibility in your financial services infrastructure strategy

Voir le replay du 20 février 2020

The world of banking is changing fast, as open banking and digital transformation evolve quickly. This forces banks to deliver new, personalized, digital customer experiences and to become much faster in developing and modifying new and existing products, services, and value propositions by themselves as well as in collaboration with the ecosystem. Legacy IT and the lack of a digital, innovative culture remain the main obstacles to address these new customer expectations. While there are no shortcuts for the cultural change, there are various new methodologies, technologies, and an expanding partner ecosystem to support and guide banks along their transformation journey.

Join this webinar to learn more about how IDC and Red Hat envision the future of infrastructure and the key building blocks to make this vision a reality.

Thomas’ core research coverage includes digital transformation in banking, retail payments, global transaction banking, and wealth management. His key focus for the next year is open banking and the emergence of an interconnected, collaborative, and accelerated ecosystem. This spans dealing with new regulations such as PSD2, readying legacy infrastructure and systems for the open API challenge, identifying and managing third party risks, and new operating models such as banking as a platform, the super backoffice, etc. Another key focus will be around the rise of machine intelligence and its impact on workflow automation, contact center and web chat automation, robo advisory, and business intelligence.
