Digital Reinvention Workshop details

Schedule details on Tuesday 27th June

09:15 - 09:45 - Session 1: Blockchain is here, now! (Arnaud Le Hors)

Blockchain is no longer just an abstract concept or a technology that is relevant only to Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. Financial institutions are now reimagining their fundamental business processes based on the possibilities provided by blockchain. Join Arnaud Le Hors for a round-table discussion of real business examples and key lessons learned.

With over twenty years of open technologies experience, Arnaud has worked in every aspect of the standards development process. He previously served as editor of several key web specifications and participated in various open source projects such as Xerces, the Apache XML parser, and currently the Hyperledger Project.

10:00 - 10:45 - Session 2: Reimagining identity through Blockchain (Greg Wolfond, Chuck Hounsell)

Current models for identity management can be costly, disjointed and unsustainably flawed. In response, IBM is collaborating with SecureKey, TD Bank and other FinTech partners to develop next generation blockchain solutions that help consumers conveniently and privately assert their identities. Cutting-edge technologies like Hyperledger Fabric connect consumers to critical online services through existing trusted digital credentials, helping to ensure that information is shared securely and only with explicit consent. This session will discuss how these capabilities are driving improved consumer privacy while increasing security, confidence and cost savings for businesses.

11:00 - 11:45 - Session 3: Outside in – designing for digital natives (Gareth Mackown)

As more services become available online, open banking emerges and generation Z enters the workforce, brands are increasingly defined by their digital presence. As a result, providing a seamless and engaging consumer experience online is more important than ever. Join Gareth Mackown for a round-table discussion on applying the latest in UX/UI design to drive organizational transformation and improve customer engagements.

Gareth regularly consults with banks, insurance companies and FinTechs across Europe on their mobile and digital strategies, helping them embrace the possibilities that these technologies bring to the financial services sector. Within IBM, he is responsible for the end-to-end mobile capabilities and offerings within retail banking, wealth and insurance. Gareth is also an associate partner within IBM Interactive Experience, IBM’s leading global interactive marketing agency.

12:00 - 12:45 - Session 4: How to make money in the open banking world (Bharat Bhushan)

Across Europe, several well-established financial institutions view PSD2 and open banking as threats due to the cost of compliance, fear of disintermediation, loss of revenue and potentially increased liability and risk. However, PSD2 can open new horizons to those that go beyond minimum compliance requirements. With a proactive approach—embracing changes and new business models—companies can disrupt the industry and reap the rewards. This session will focus on the potential of PSD2 to help enterprises create new revenue streams, gain more customers and become technology companies with banking licenses.

13:00 - 13:45 - Session 5: Adapt faster to new threats (Maxim Shifrin)

As an industry leader in fraud prevention, IBM’s FinTech solutions can help organizations transform how they detect, analyze and take action against fraud by assessing risks and making corrective recommendations. These technologies are designed to help financial service providers gain the flexibility to apply new countermeasures quickly, welcoming new customers while keeping fraud out. Join this session to learn about how IBM Trusteer Pinpoint can deliver the visibility, control and flexibility needed to rapidly respond to everchanging threats.

15:45 - 16:30 - Session 6: A cognitive approach to staying ahead of AML/KYC (Vivek Bajaj, Paul H Govoni, Sam Kalyanam, Constantin von Altrock)

IBM is now using the power of cognitive computing to help financial institutions prevent financial crime and address the challenges of AML, KYC and safer payments. IBM’s solutions are designed to reduce false positives, streamline alert processes, improve understanding of risk and enable real-time fraud prevention with rapid deployment and modeling. These technologies can also automatically screen, extract and link relevant content from structured and unstructured data sources to improve understanding of entities and related risks. Attend this session with Vivek Bajaj to find out more about three IBM offerings that are helping transform crime prevention and improve security operations in the financial industry.

16:45 - 17:15 - Session 7: How to handle risk management and regulatory compliance (Yadu Kalia)

Your technology infrastructure cannot adapt to the demands and pace of change in risk management and regulatory compliance. FRTB is highlighting huge inefficiencies caused by non-collaborative technology stacks and siloed infrastructure. What can Software-Defined Infrastructure do to help you fix this problem?
These mandates have for years been putting technology infrastructure on the back-foot when it comes to managing demand and operational flexibility. In this session we will look at how organizations are adopting a Software-Defined strategy to address these ever growing pressures and business needs; thus achieving the following - increased business efficiency, reduced operational risk and massively increased time-to-market.
