Coffee Break 1: Transforming culture with Communities of Practice
Innovation is the foundation of success for financial services institutions. To optimize workflows across the organization, it is important to increase conversations between groups, share best practices and customer feedback, and provide transparency of information and materials necessary for all to do their best work. Doing so allows individuals and teams to build on each other's ideas and discoveries and enhance innovation.
Join us to discuss how a Community of Practice (CoP)—a forum for exchanging best practices, customer challenges, technology and business solutions—can help you:
- Transform your culture.
- Remove barriers and enhance cross-functional teams.
- Increase holistic feedback.

Coffee Break 2: Develop self service solutions with microservices and containers
Adopting microservices and building and running containers offers challenges to some teams. At the foundation of those challenges are tackling new technologies and working in traditionally isolated organizations.

In this session we’ll discuss:
- How a new approach can help you adopt microservices.
- The benefits you will realize.
- Considerations to explore as you adopt microservices and automation.

Coffee Break 3: Core modernization for Insurance
Insurers must constantly innovate to meet the needs of their policyholders. Hybrid cloud has become a critical part of an insurer’s plan to modernize and extend core systems, while maximizing existing infrastructure. This approach supports efficiencies and new innovations in critical functions like policy administration, claims, and underwriting.
This discussion will focus on examples of how insurance companies are implementing hybrid cloud to:
- Containerize core functions.
- Add security, portability, and flexibility.
- Develop and deploy new products and services.

Coffee Break 4: Strengthen your cybersecurity position
Resources have always been a challenge when it comes to cybersecurity. You are not always rewarded for doing security the way you are when you develop a new business application quickly. This usually leads to security teams being understaffed and overworked. This lack of resources can be a bigger threat than the criminals who have their sights set on stealing organizations’ data, money, time, and reputation, increasing the need to focus on cybersecurity.
This discussion will include four steps on how to strengthen your cybersecurity position:
- Establish internal security training and certification programs.
- Encourage security cross-pollination.
- Look at your security tooling.
- Put a consistent automation strategy in place.
