Even before the pandemic, the profit margins and traditional business models for many banks, insurance and financial services firms were under pressure. The pandemic greatly intensified this and made it necessary to radically transform operations and address the rapid shifts in customer preferences.
However, traditional approaches to operation and IT are not well suited to the current era's digital reality, which demands customer-centricity and rapid innovation. The post-pandemic operating environment should leverage cloud technology, automation, APIs, ecosystem partners, microservices and AI etc.
Join this HKIB Thought Leadership Webinar to learn how automation and distributed cloud enable faster time to market and superior customer experience. The speakers will highlight what should remain at the top of the agenda for banks when devising their post-pandemic strategies.
