Financial Services: Transform the Future with IT

The financial services industry is on the brink of massive transformation as companies grapple with a host of new challenges. They must race to mobilize their businesses and build customer-centric systems while battling increased competitive pressures and expanded government regulations. And while these innovative products and services must be delivered quickly, IT budgets remain tight.

For many, the answer lies in fundamentally revamping core systems and processes with an eye towards simplification, security, and consolidation.

Highlights

Attend Financial Services and Insurance—Industry Central @ OpenWorld to discover how financial services institutions are building for innovation while optimizing for efficiency.

  • Modernize core systems for better business efficiency while reducing overall costs for infrastructure, operations, maintenance, and support
  • Provide a consistent, personalized experience across the complete customer lifecycle—supporting information-driven cross-channel engagement, selling, and service
  • Analyze and revamp risk-management processes and systems to massively reduce IT-associated risks from threats such as denial-of-service attacks, data breaches, and service outages
