Financial Cloud Summit

March 7, 2024 | UK

Cloud is no longer a nice-to-have. Cloud is a must-have technology that is at the crux of operations across the financial services industry. Over the last few years, banks, fintech firms and technology providers have established a holistic strategy, migrated to cloud, and optimised their omnichannel services. The foundation is now in place. Gone are the days of resistance and hesitance to cloud: in order to succeed, every company handling core business-critical workloads across payments, clearing and settlement must utilise cloud today. Today, organisations must place impetus on strategising with their multiple cloud providers, system integrators and technology providers to offer the best experience to their customers; migrating infrastructures to platforms where financial firms can align on speed, agility, and innovation; and optimising cloud platforms to empower brands to create intelligent, revenue-generating products. The Financial Cloud Summit will help decision makers across the banking, payments and fintech sectors to bridge the cloud strategy, migration and optimisation gap, offering actionable solutions to speed up their journey.

Transform Payments Europe 2023

November 28, 2023 | UK

Europe's payment industry is at a pivotal moment. A reshaping of the landscape that has created new opportunities for incumbents and disruptors to win customers, develop new solutions, and claim market share of a global payments system that is set to reach $3 trillion by 2026 (McKinsey). Yet if leaders don't get ahead of major regulatory and infrastructure upheaval, we won't fully unlock the worldwide market potential for frictionless payments. These challenges set the stage for incredible product innovation, as leaders respond to the 2023 Financial Services and Markets Bill, New Payments Architecture, UK CHAPS migration to ISO 20022, and PSD2/3 initiatives. In this context, achieving widespread Open Banking adoption, seamless Instant Payments integration, Digital ID implementation, and effective fraud reduction presents a formidable challenge for payments leaders.  That's why, at Transform Payments Europe 2023, our impact agenda will delve deeper than ever before into the critical issues keeping payments leaders awake at night. This approach means going beyond the superficial discussions typically held at conferences to unlock the all-new insights, tools, tactics and connections you really need for success.  Join us to explore the profound implications of impending regulations, facilitate instant and cross-border payments, adapt infrastructure for future needs, seamlessly migrate legacy tech-stacks, drive product innovation, and fortify fraud prevention measures.
