The Australian Banking & Financial Technology Innovation Summit will be held on 17-18 September 2012 at the Shangri-La Hotel in Sydney, Australia. The Summit is a national gathering of leaders and offers insight into the transformation and business optimisation that is gaining momentum in the financial sector in Australia today.
There is a strong desire for great customer centricity and the push to consolidate IT and operations that are key drivers in the future roadmap of the banking and financial services sector. The combination of these trends has serious implications for financial services organisations. They can no longer maintain the traditional parameter-style defences around their corporate networks and ignore the seismic shift. The next frontier of financial services will embrace social media and cloud computing, consolidation and use-as-you-please systems but still the most challenging will be to foster trust and recapture loyalty among the discerning customer base.
It has never been a more exciting time to be working in the financial services with the need for transformation and business optimisation gaining momentum amid market pressures and growth in super regions like Asia. Computer savvy customers continue with their insatiable appetite for technology consumption and their need for immediate responses to their requests. User-friendly online services and 24/7 access is now the norm so customer- centricity focus for financial organisations is the key factor in maintaining a competitive edge.
Asian multinationals are also driving economic growth with aggressive global expansion strategies and are innovative users of technology. Our financial organisations will need to allow more centralisation of IT and operations, enabling organisations to reap the benefits of technology innovations like cloud computing.
This two day conference will address issues that are driving these changes and forecast emerging trends in the financial sector as well as view the latest systems in technology.
A look at some of the issues that will be addressed include:
• Predicting the next big thing in the banking and finance world – will it be in
• Super-regional financial institutions – the emerging trend for 2012
• The next frontier – visualisation intelligence and why
• Social media strategy – what are the best tools and what the risks?
• Collaborative Online Services (COS) project – what is its value?
• Overcoming security concerns around cloud computing.
The Australian Banking & Financial Technology Innovation Summit will showcase an impressive line-up of speakers who will provide important information on the latest trends in place and the opportunities that exist to drive change through innovation now and into the future.
The Australian Banking & Financial Technology Innovation Summit will host up to 150 senior level executives from the private and public sectors and will partner with international corporations such as IBM Asia Pacific, Infosys and SAS.
