USA agricultural credit lender to present at BPM in Banking, Finance and Insurance Conference 2014

Bizagi Business Process Management
Our decision to choose BPM was a strategic move to deliver agility within changing market conditions

Bizagi customer AgFirst Farm Credit Bank will host a session at this year’s BPM in Banking, Finance and Insurance Conference 2014.

The event, held at the DoubleTree in Chicago, September 29 – October 4, is an expert-led forum focused on leveraging Business Process Management technology to reduce risk, optimize outcomes and deliver a superior user and customer experience.

Bala Sivankoil, Director of Application Development at AgFirst, will take the stage alongside other industry speakers involved in leading BPM programs at top banks and financial services firms, including Credit Suisse, Morgan Stanley Wealth Management, and many more.

The case-study style presentation will feature AgFirst’s first-hand experience of implementing an enterprise-level BPM solution at a financial institution, and will explain:

  • How the bank transformed its loans transmittal process in just 16 weeks using agile methods;
  • Why an adaptable business model is critical in order to deliver cost-effective solutions - enabling AgFirst to deploy core business logic to the bank’s other cooperatives in 25 percent of the time;
  • The role played by Bizagi’s powerful Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) capabilities such as web services, data virtualization and replication; and
  • Challenges faced, obstacles overcome and shared best practices.

Bala Sivankoil, AgFirst, commented:

“Our decision to choose BPM was a strategic move to deliver agility within changing market conditions. Above all we wanted to be able to create solutions in a short amount of time. We look forward to sharing our story with other financial institutions and demonstrating how, even with limited time and resources, you can achieve both short- and long-term results with the right BPMS.”

The four-day event, which features tutorials, round table discussions and the now famous “BPM Bootcamp,”will be highlighted by the annual Global Awards for Excellence in BPM and Workflow gala where AgFirst is nominated as a finalist alongside fellow Bizagi customer, Generali PPF Holding.
