According to an IDC prediction, 40% of technology spending in 2020 will be reportedly focused on digital transformation, with enterprises spending in excess of $2 trillion. With this in mind, it is crucial for global businesses to learn how to leverage new opportunities and join the digital movement in order to remain competitive. Here, we’ve prepared an overview article for you to understand the ‘ins and outs’ of digital transformation alongside the impact it has on financial services.
Digital transformation in the financial industry is spurred by two main factors: changing consumer demands and the growing threat from disruptive challenger banks. In order to stand out from the competition, digital transformation professionals face questions including how to predict ever-changing customers’ expectation and technology advancement; cater appropriate digital products for different customer segments’ demands; deliver services for the unbanked segments; offer differentiated value-added services for customers beyond prices; improving customers’ adoption of digitalized distribution networks; monitoring and assessing returns on digital investments through specific KPI measurement metrics.
This 10 Days course is designed for bank and finance executives who have the present and future responsibility for implementing digital changes in an era when transformation will undoubtedly be rapid, and its effects far-reaching and permanent.
