How banks should think about technology and innovation
Speaker: JP Rangaswami, Chief Scientist, BT Group
Banks are critically challenged by market stability right now and so will any be thinking about innovation, or should they be? For many, the answers will be 'no' but these banks will be seriously weakened in terms of competitiveness and customer attraction by the banks that are innovating. But even if a bank wants to innovate, what should they do and is all innovation about technology? Find out on 4th November by joining us for an evening with JP Rangaswami, the Chief Scientist of BT Group and former CIO Innovator of the Year with DRKW.
