Lower costs and enabling faster responses to evolving consumer needs are key benefits of moving your technology to the cloud. This agility has become a competitive necessity in financial services, where digitally-native fintech firms have seen consumer adoption in Australia grow 100% every two years since 2015, according to EY*.

What key decisions can you make to bring smarter, more personalized propositions to market ahead of the competition (e.g., in use cases for lending, online investment advice, and SMEs)?

In this webinar, you will learn how to hone your investments in technologies such as cloud, integration, and security for agility, resiliency, and scale, with emerging best practices, standards, and strategic deployment and product development options. In doing so, Eric will draw both from global examples and his first-hand experience of over 35 years in enterprise architecture, including at Citibank, helping turn the potential of technology to meet time-to-market and productivity goals, while improving the digital user experience.
