Tracking fintech, banking & financial services innovations since 1994
Great digital experiences can showcase the unique differentiation in your banking products and services. But such great digital experiences can’t be bought – they have to be built. And customers need this great digital experience to choose you to do business with.
However organizations often struggle to assemble the needed development and deployment tools to create these great experiences, and to scale them successfully.
While you may not be able to buy a great digital experience, you can buy the platform on which to build one. This platform is known as a Digital Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), running in the cloud. The Digital PaaS provides everything you need to reduce the innovation time for cloud-based digital applications, resulting in the ability to iterate quickly and continuously improve the experience.
Watch this webinar, in collaboration with WSO2, to explore:
Better techniques to speed up innovation and meet client demands
How to simplify the complexity of modern innovation platforms
The benefits of the cloud or digital applications, and how to implement a PaaS solution into your strategy
Q&A with the speakers, addressing your burning questions and thoughts
Featuring Eric Newcomer, CTO at WSO2 and David Penn, Finovate Research Analyst.
Upcoming Webinar: AI in Fintech: Driving innovation, inclusion, and impact Date: Thursday, April 28, 2022 | Time: 02:00 PM British Summer Time
Artificial intelligence is more than just the latest buzzword – using AI has a meaningful impact on decisions across the entire customer lifecycle. From improving fraud detection and decisioning accuracy to optimizing pricing and managing bias, AI has a key role to play in changing the way financial services products are developed and offered to customers.
Artificial intelligence and automation have been at the forefront of the financial services industry. This rapid digital acceleration driven by the pandemic has forced lenders to modernize their lending ecosystem to stay relevant in the new normal.
Today you know that the success of your business depends vastly on your ability to use technologies to harness the power of data and provide hyper-personalized products and services to your customers. However, only 40% of lenders believe they have the required digital capabilities to undertake such a transformation.
Watch for this intriguing discussion as top experts from Quantiphi discuss how AI-first digital engineering can re-imagine traditional lending processes to help you enhance customer lifetime value and reduce operating costs in this highly competitive business environment.

Title: Gloss without the undercoat? The longer-term results of digitizing without the right foundations Duration: 1 hour
With staff costs at around 50% of all operational expenditure in some banks, it’s easy to see why reducing the human element from the banking relationship can be attractive. Digital take-up rates received a massive bump during the recent pandemic, which has added weight to the notion that banking employees are not as necessary as they once were.
But can you reduce your resource levels once you’ve pushed customers to the digital channel?
Recent evidence suggests that the drive towards digital without careful attention being paid to the experience the customer receives can lead to unexpected costs.
Catch up on this #FinovateWebinar with Bob Meara, Senior Analyst for Retail and Corporate Banking at Celent, and Andrew Stevens, Global Principal for Financial Services at Quadient, as they analyze new research results, uncover critical gaps in the customer experience, and recommend practical steps to join digital transformation with longer term sustainable cost savings.
Title: How BMO is reimagining the Commercial Banking digital client experience using real-time analytics Duration: 1 hour

Working with Quantum Metric, BMO leveraged real-time data to build an experience for its commercial customers that replicated the ease and usability of its retail platform, but reflected the needs and behaviors of its commercial clients.
Watch this webinar, featuring Quantum Metric and BMO to hear our experts discuss:
Building a data and analytics strategy that supports an iterative approach to product development
Identifying user frustrations, errors, and confusion on commercial sites with real-time data
Quantifying the long-term impact of negative user experiences

Upcoming webinar Date: Tuesday, August 17, 2021 Time: 1:30pm Singapore Time Duration: 1 hour
Digital identity is establishing itself as one of the most significant technology trends, and certainly one to make big waves in the financial services and fintech industry in the years to come.
As the world’s shift toward digitization has accelerated, customers expect faster and better access to virtual onboarding for new brands and services, and the financial industry must now deliver. Plus, a new and significant market demographic – Gen Z and younger Millennials – is emerging for financial services providers. Converting these prospects into customers is essential to long-term success because of the substantial lifetime value they offer your business.
This move to digital does not just open up new worlds of opportunity. Businesses have also noted increases in the volume of digital transactions and interactions, which fraudsters are quick to take advantage of. According to AITE, attacks manifested as first-party application fraud, third-party application fraud, and synthetic identity fraud, so it is becoming critical for FIs to address this trend and develop their approach before it takes a strong hold on revenues and reputations.
An effective digital identify solution can be the answer, but are FIs and banks fully embracing the technology and leveraging it effectively?

Once we’ve overcome the pandemic, the next crisis regulators will be turning their attention to is climate change. Unlike Covid-19, climate change isn’t something we can develop a vaccine for – and it is here to stay. Climate change risk will therefore be a key focus area for regulators going forward, so banks need to be thinking about how they’ll address and analyze climate-related risks and opportunities at a portfolio level.
