The next paradigm shift in banking will witness the transformation of branch-laden, product-centric organisations with legacy systems into digital-heavy, customer-centric ones. The entrance of fintech and bigtech players into the landscape also promises great potential for competition and collaboration. What are some sustainable approaches to digital innovation and customer satisfaction? How can we increase operational efficiency and derive new revenue streams? More importantly, how do we enable innovation in a safe way?

This power panel will explore:

  • Challenging legacies and thinking outside the box
  • Accelerating digital innovation and transformation
  • Unleashing the innovative capabilities of an enterprise, while ensuring user and data safety
  • Expanding the digital ecosystem through integration and strategic partnerships
  • Attracting new customer bases and creating new revenue streams
  • Breaking the security vs. innovation cultural bias
