Agenda | Location

This event will feature a series of seminar presentations, followed by a panel discussion. The seminar presentations will include a lineup of cutting-edge technologies from blockchain and other ledger technologies to quantum computing and cryptography. The panel discussion will provide guidance from peer organizations and other experts on a practical approach for digitally transforming your organization to compete and stay relevant in the NextWave.


Emerging Technologies Seminar

Participants will learn:
• What technologies will have an impact in the next wave – 1,3, 5 years and beyond.
• How companies can best organize to tackle the impact of these emerging technologies.
• Strategies and best practices for assessing the business value of these technologies.
• New approaches to implementing innovation and driving transformation throughout the organization.

Digitalization Panel Discussion

This panel will explore how the current pace of technology acceleration is impacting digital transformation efforts throughout the enterprise. With technology doubling in maturity and efficiency every two years, virtually every technology is legacy from the moment of implementation. Financial services firms focused on staying relevant and competing in the marketplace need a new playbook for legacy modernization — one that combines aggressive digitalization with a new framework for value creation.

Participants will learn:
• The importance of building technology solutions which enhance the customer experience and address their needs and preferences.
• Why adopting digital ecosystem thinking is critical for financial services today.
• How integrating technologies like artificial intelligence can drive value creation.
