Driving top-line growth through digital innovation, while simultaneously increasing profitability through optimising costs

Over the past two years, global events have accelerated the need for organisations to adapt, transform, modernise, and innovate. The pandemic raised the bar for more agile, scalable, and collaborative structures, pushing organisations to reimagine services with greater creativity and ingenuity, and relying on digital technology to help them remain resilient to future disruptions.

Macroeconomic factors such as inflation, war, rising interest rates, supply chain disruptions, and more are pushing organisations to reinvent themselves. In today’s rapidly evolving world, resilience, adaptability, and innovation are keys to organisational success.

In light of these developments, how can banks reinvent themselves? What strategies should they adopt to transform and be competitive?

Driving a More Consistent, More Secure, and More Cost-efficient Operating Model Across the Various Clouds 

Organisations all over the world are leveraging multiple public, data center, and edge services to increase flexibility, manage costs, gather more data, and better monetise services. They strive to maximise the value of this investment while contending with complex management of siloed technologies, increased compliance, and changing regulations. 

Managing this complexity is essential to reduce operational risk, which can have a negative impact on capital adequacy. Operational risk is often driven by the business in an effort to enhance the customer experience, but it can come at an expense in terms of money, talent, and resiliency. 

A cloud-smart approach will amplify AI efforts. Why?  Infrastructure will become invisible. 

Banks are leveraging the power of AI to amplify the productivity of enterprise functions like customer service and customer experience. In the future, AI will also be used for risk management, fraud detection and investigation, compliance, and personalisation. 

A cloud-smart approach will be necessary to stay resilient, protect data, comply with regulations, and remain flexible. This approach should be built to change, be evergreen, be automated, and be digital end-to-end. 

OpenGov Asia is pleased to invite you to our exclusive OpenGov Breakfast Insight aimed at imparting knowledge on how to drive a cloud-smart approach to accelerate the delivery of new applications to grow the business while modernising and automating the entire enterprise infrastructure. 

This session serves as a great peer-to-peer learning platform to gain insights and practical solutions to empower organisations to gain a competitive advantage through becoming cloud-smart organisations and navigating multi-cloud complexity better. 

We will be discussing:

  • Cloud-Smart Approach: Discuss how financial institutions can adopt a cloud-smart approach matching business systems to best suited environment. Participants will share their experiences, challenges, and best practices in adopting a cloud-smart strategy and its impact on their business operations 
  • Cybersecurity and Compliance: It is crucial to address the evolving cybersecurity landscape and regulatory compliance challenges. We will focus on aspects such as data protection, secure access, risk management, and compliance with various regulations
  • Innovating with AI, ML, and NLP: We will cover how financial institutions can leverage cutting-edge technologies like AI, ML, and NLP (LLMs like GPT-4, PaLM II, or open source) to drive innovation, enhance customer experiences, and streamline operations. Participants will discuss various use cases, such as fraud detection, risk management, customer support automation, and personalisation in banking services
