Panel Discussion Overview
The financial services industry is in transition, pivoting from regulatory driven transformation to innovation driven enterprise transformation. At the heart of this pivot is the sustained and accelerating pace of change driven by the myriad of technology advancements and disruptions that are reshaping the industry. Strategic plans of years past targeted with siloed thinking about FinTech, Digital, AI/Machine Learning, Cloud, and Automation as individual topics must now be coordinated in order to unlock the true potential of the disruptive technology agenda. Innovation Acceleration will form the critical core of the new transformation agenda that financial institutions undertake as the pivot from regulatory to growth continues. Firms undertaking Digital Transformation will need to better integrate advanced analytics and new cloud-based, API driven ecosystems. Firms adopting RPA will need to evolve into more AI/Machine Learning based capabilities to drive Intelligent Automation. The Intelligent Automated enterprise will be the new business model and firms that can embrace this new operating model will win while those who do not may not survive.
