TechMarketView Webinar – Clarity of Purpose: How the pandemic helped financial services to focus on what really matters!

The UK financial services industry has just experienced a “Black Swan” event like no other in living memory. Similar to previous crises that have affected this industry, COVID-19 has already proven to be a catalyst for significant change. When we finally look back, we will almost certainly conclude that the pandemic helped to fundamentally reshape this sector. The impact of COVID-19 has seen the vulnerabilities of heritage technologies brought into sharp focus, whilst an over-reliance on analogue methods has also been exposed. As a result, many organisations are now ‘shining a light’ on a new set of priorities as the imperative for technology-led change has become almost uniformly apparent.

End-user clients are increasingly targeting technology that is real-time, API-enabled and cloud native, and can facilitate, continuous product development (CPD) and remote deployment. Ultimately, the vast majority of technology supporting business processes within the financial services space will be consumed “as a Service” via hybrid/multi cloud environments. As some UK financial services firms consider wholesale transformation of their business processes and operating models, this webinar will discuss the key priorities for the industry and the crucial areas that are helping to drive SITS spend within the sector.
