Agenda | Location

This event consists of 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 legacy infrastructure.

Seminar | The financial services industry itself is a product of technology-based disruption and innovation. Emerging technologies open new doors and bring the ability to disrupt the market. But to take advantage of these technologies, technology professionals need to understand not only what they are and how they work, but how they can be implemented effectively. This session includes a lineup of cutting-edge technologies and technology categories running the gamut from blockchain and other ledger technologies to quantum computing and cryptography. It also encompasses new service delivery mechanisms, new or enhanced products and how firms are finding new ways to combat risks to security, data privacy, and effective operations.

Participants will learn:

• What technologies will have an impact over the next 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 transforming their organizations

Panel Discussion | While much of the attention and hype is focused on forward-looking technologies, most financial services firms have a “dirty little secret”: Legacy systems. Legacy systems—and the outdated processes associated with them—inject drag and complexity into organizations. They can hinder innovation, and reduce the firm’s ability to compete effectively.

For financial firms to succeed, they have to address the challenge of legacy systems. That means digitizing legacy systems and streamlining operational processes enabled by new technologies. This sessions provides guidance from peer organizations and other experts on a practical approach for digitally transforming your legacy infrastructure.

Participants will learn:

• When to replace legacy systems, and when to streamline them
• Operational strategies for minimizing the impact of legacy systems
• How blockchain, automation, and advanced technologies can bring legacy technologies “into the fold
