Financial Sector: How to Make the Right Innovation Decisions

About this event

Innovation is critical for financial services companies to stay relevant and competitive in our fast-changing tech-driven world.

While 84% of executives agree that innovation is important to their growth strategy and 80% believe that their current business models are at risk only 6% are satisfied with innovation performance.

Effective innovation performance begins with asking the right questions and making the right decisions for your organisation, such as: 

  • What is the role of innovation in financial services companies?
  • What inhibits innovation, vendor selection, and third-party collaboration?
  • How can you overcome these challenges - internally and via third party collaboration?
  • How do you evaluate vendors while remaining compliant...always?
  • How do you evaluate your options to make the best-informed choice? 
  • How do you eliminate risk before you deploy new technology in your production environment?
