Financial Services has been a digital industry since the introduction of the computer to mainstream business, but in recent years, advances in technology and cultural changes have placed customers firmly in control of the relationship. Financial Services, like almost every other consumer-facing industry, is being forced to evolve at an unprecedented pace, just to keep up with its customers’ evolving expectations. This change, often referred to as a “digital transformation” is more than just a change in IT infrastructure, it requires a fundamental change in mind-set and a reinvention of its services as a more customer-centric, personalised and adaptable partnership between business and consumer.

Join us in Rome on 12 – 14 July for Global Banking Perspectives 2016, FIS’ annual international client conference, as we explore the latest thinking and practical examples from some of the world’s leading financial services companies that will help you empower your digital bank.

Complimentary Registration Now Open – Attendance is free to FIS clients, but we need you to register so we can plan our activities based on the needs of our attendees.

Redefining digital with Digital Customer Enablement from FIS

Digital Banking is making news across the globe as the central principle for a new and improved banking experience. However, ‘digital’ is not just a delivery mechanism and cuts deep into your banking technology strategy. The amalgamation of digital delivery mechanisms (Omni/United) with componentised customer enablement drives a compelling story for digital transformation. Join us as we articulate FIS’ approach to moving from being just Digital to full Digital Customer Enablement.

Open Banking:; Open APIs. FIS’ Open Banking Framework

Join us as we explore the FIS ‘Open Banking’ revolution.

Bank payments hub: Evolution, not revolution

The payments industry has grown increasingly complex, with banks creating unwieldy silos that are causing them to question whether they should be in the business of payments. Since the advent of the Internet, opportunities have arisen for payments processors to change their approach and view payments as a valuable asset as opposed to a costly commodity. The bank payment hub is a centralised payments infrastructure derived from the Open Payment Framework (OPF), allowing you to manage payments from origination through instruction management to execution across the enterprise.

Warren Gardiner

Enhancing the Customer Experience through the integration of the cards business into the wider bank

From digital wallets to customer-level controls to transaction level consumer finance, integrating cards into the digital bank of the future requires putting more control back into the hands of the customer. This session covers the functions that are available to start the journey and talks about some of the challenges around integration and testing in this fluid and demanding area.

Matt Collicoat

Case Study: Examples of effective on-boarding for payment schemes and banks

Implementing new rules and regulations can be a pain-point for banks and corporations who have to test and verify at multiple stages of their implementations. This session will highlight how FIS partnered with a payment scheme to confirm their quality at different levels of a new payment switch implementation and include examples of how FIS supported banks with an easy on-boarding of their customers, resulting in customer loyalty and a faster migration.

Client interest in blockchain technology is accelerating significantly. This session will provide insight for interested customers on the FIS view of blockchain and how the technology would or would not fit within our solutions. We will also update the clients on our own pilot and proof of concept activity surrounding blockchain.

Barry Rhodes

Retro is chic! Why relationship-centric banking is critical to competing in today’s financial services marketplace.

At FIS we have worked to help our clients become focused on their customers as a “market of one”. Over the years, as technology has expanded and banks have grown, there has been a natural movement to a product-centric organisation. Decades ago, banks were very customer focused and customer loyalty was driven by establishing strong relationships. That approach is important to re-establish. In this session we will focus on how, by leveraging a strategy focused on relationship analytics and pricing, financial institutions can return to the relationship-centricity that creates success in an environment where fintechs are “in your face” and must either be partnered with or leap-frogged to achieve success.

PSD2 as an opportunity to redefine your payments strategy

PSD2 proposes a set of rules which enable third-party providers to initiate payments and access account details on behalf of the customer, resulting in a more open and inclusive payments ecosystems. Existing payment service providers should see this as an opportunity to rethink their strategy when it comes to customer engagement. What changes are required to comply with this new regulation? How can banks mitigate security risks and maintain control over who accesses their systems?

Marijke Koninckx
Tim Van der Wee

What does tokenisation, host-card emulation (HCE) and .pay mean for me?

The growing use of HCE and tokenisation, as well as the emergence of .pay has implications for banks on a global basis. This session will look at developments around mobile payments in the last 12 months and provide use cases of how FIS solutions have empowered our clients join the .pay revolution.

FIS Financial Crime Management solutions are evolving to meet these and other emerging trends. In this session FIS experts will discuss:

  • Global AML, fraud and sanction trends

Enabling banks to adapt to the new world of Treasury

Attend this session to hear how FIS is helping banks meet these challenges and enabling treasurers to rethink and transform their treasury.

Where do YOU stand on the utilities platform? And where are your peers today on the road to pooled utility model adoption?

Capco have recently conducted a global survey into banks’ attitudes towards the utilities platform. We define a ‘pooled utility model’ as utilisation of an external party that serves multiple customers, to provide a pay-for-usage service in technology, data or process management and asked 69 financial institutions, distributed across 26 countries about their attitudes towards utilities, their progress towards adoption and the key obstacles to implementation. Now the results are in and they are insightful. Join us to learn the full story. You’ll find commentary, insight and some provocative views of what lies ahead for utilities.
