Banking And Finance Congress 2018

Accelerating Digital Thriving Amidst Digital Disruption

Dubai, December 11, 2018


Over 50% of banks and financial services organizations in the Middle East, Turkey & Africa region are currently undergoing Digital Transformation. As customer expectation shifts towards highly personalized services, anytime-anywhere banking, and digital banking, new disruptive technology paradigms such as artificial intelligence, robotics and Blockchain are enabling services that were previously unimaginable. The rapid emergence of Fin-techs is further accelerating innovation and competition in the industry.

However, in order to achieve digital success, they need to develop relevant capabilities in technology, skills and processes, while at the same time strengthening digital trust and complying with ever-increasing regulations.
