IDC Financial Services Summit 2021

The Future of the Fittest: How Financial Institutions will Revamp, Rebuild and Reinvest Beyond 2021

Digital Event | Turkey, June 3, 2021

Overview

Lessons of many crises in the past have served to point the financial services industry to the most likely outcomes out of the current debacle. Experience obviously helps.
 
At the onset of 2021, banks, insurance, and capital market firms are already racing – and racing fervently – to fill in the gaps exposed by a growing credit risk event, taking opportunities emerging from hyper-transacting and hyper-digital customers and remaking business models to ensure that respond to the times. The fittest of them all will win the future.
 
Just like in a game of chess, it is vital for financial services institutions to reconfigure, relook at the current pieces and outthink the opponents in order to outplay and win. Join us by exchanging best practices with your peers to be the fittest and win the future.

The Roadmap for the Future of Financial Services: Cloud, Open Source, and Platforms of Innovation

Cyrus Daruwala

Managing Director, IDC Financial Insights Asia/Pacific

2020 was a turning point for banks and insurers, as they strive to stay ahead of competition and compete in a more digital world of financial services. There is a more interesting dynamics in competition too - the fintechs and insure techs: companies that promise to be more agile and more customer-centric than traditional incumbents. In their digital transformation journey, cloud and open source continue to be a key pillar of banks' and insurers' technology strategy and success.

WorkSpace, WorkCulture and WorkForce - IDC’s FoW framework foundational pillars – need to coexist harmoniously to drive work transformation. Some organizations have advanced WorkSpaces strategies but failed to engage and facilitate a collaborative WorkCulture amongst their employees. Others have yet to leverage robotics and AI to augment their WorkForce. An integrated holistic approach across all the three pillars is the holy grail for a successful Future of Work strategy. For a successful digital transformation, it is necessary that all the main components of the Future of Work concept: the workplace, corporate culture and human resources complement each other harmoniously.

Agility and responsiveness are the hallmarks of today’s modern enterprise. Ever-changing technologies put more power in the hands of customers, whose expectations continue to grow. Across industries, increasing amounts of data are transforming markets. Businesses that are slow to wield the combined power of technology and data to meet customer demands and transform operations risk falling behind their competition.

In response to these market dynamics, forward-thinking companies are aligning strategic priorities to Intelligent Operations, a state of maturity that leverages artificial intelligence (AI), big data platforms, real-time analytics, automation, and human ingenuity to achieve a sustainable competitive edge. On their journey to achieving Intelligent Operations, organizations begin to uncover opportunities for business transformation. These opportunities manifest in internal- and customer-facing processes. Infusing data and AI into these business processes enhances an organization’s agility and responsiveness, better preparing it to combat competitive threats and keep pace with customers’ ever-changing expectations. Intelligent Operations puts your business on a strategic trajectory to enable better decision making, customer experiences and business outcomes.

Hakan Ünsal

CTO, Soitron Siber Güvenlik Servisleri
Segmentation is not a new solution, but as networks have evolved to be flatter we see that those existing solutions are no longer the best way to control lateral movement or understand what is happening within data centres. Breaches continue to happen, whilst the issue of lateral movement still persists, whilst there continues to be a lack of visibility as to how the applications talk to each other.
So how can we see what is happening in our data centre and ensure that we control how applications are communicating? Illumio helps to gain visibility of application behaviour, Isolate cyberattacks and stop breaches from spreading across any cloud, data center, or endpoint. Join this session to learn how.
