Digital Banking. Are we about to witness the extinction of the traditional bank?



How to “sell” a digital strategy to a traditional (nondigital) board/culture?

Speaker: TBC


PANEL: Innovation and the added value that smart digital applications can represent in a commercial, environmental and social context

Every business started before the Internet now faces the same challenge: how to transform in order to compete in a digital economy? 

The integration of technological innovations with business practice can enable significant competitive advantage. Digital transformation is not only about updating the technology but also about upgrading the strategic thinking. 

Traditional businesses need to rethink their underlying assumptions in multiple domains of strategy (customers, competition, data, innovation, value), learn how to harness new platforms, big data, rapid experimentation, and disruptive business models and integrate these into the existing organization.

Our entire communication goes social: how to embrace the trend and make it an opportunity



The digital workforce. Are we ready to integrate the new comers in our IT departments?

AI is coming. Advanced learning machines is replacing today low-skill jobs, but AIs will work in the near future collaboratively with human professionals to better and faster solve complex problems. The cognitive era will create new jobs, such as robot monitoring professionals, data scientists, automation specialists, and content curators.


PANEL: Cybersecurity. Open SI vs Secure IT. The Dark Side of the Cloud

The heads of the IT&C function need to adapt to this reality and become one of the drivers of change or, at the very least, a strong supporter. Otherwise their contribution will be questioned and others (chief innovation, chief digital, etc.) might take the leadership generating shadow IT or duplication/non-synchronization of efforts.

The cloud is darkening: Increased could adoption means placing high-value assets such as own customer data outside the organization’s immediate control. Data leaches, Compromised credentials, malicious intruders. Yahoo recently admitted It Secretly Hacked All User Accounts For US Intelligence
