  • Data Analytics in Financial Services: Identifying obstacles and key issues
    Data Analytics in Financial Services: Identifying obstacles and key issues Alex Kwiatkowski (Finastra), Peter Jackson (Southern Water), Jessica Holzbach (Penta) Recorded: Jul 20 2017 61 mins
    In an increasingly digitalised world, the value of information grows ever higher. Winning organisations – whether in financial services or any other vertical sector – will be those who can harness the power of data analytics to develop microscopic levels of insight and foresight into customer behaviours and operational activities in order to make progressive improvements on a continuous basis. Product development informed by factual evidence rather than educated guesswork, or real-time risk management based on a hyper-accurate picture of exposures, bring significant internal and external benefits.

    However, while banks want to get closer to their customers, is the feeling mutual? Data privacy is a very sensitive issue, and the perception of what constitutes intrusion will likely vary between individuals. Institutions, therefore, need to walk a fine line between what’s genuinely useful and what’s genuinely creepy.

    During this webinar, a panel of respected subject matter experts will discuss and dissect the key issues related to the widespread use of data analytics in financial services, identifying the obstacles which need to be overcome and the enablers that will drive FS forward successfully.

    How AI, Data & Analytics are Changing Financial Services Solon Angel, Founder & Chief Strategy Officer, Mindbridge AI Recorded: Jul 19 2017 45 mins
    In the recent years, financial services have made a significant investment in the big data infrastructures but have yet to see adequate returns on applying analytics to them. Artificial intelligence and machine learning bring new capacities regarding data discovery and advanced anomaly detection while helping finance professionals create new efficient workflows around data discovery. The real value of AI is in uncovering new patterns and fully leveraging big-data. By applying fast, AI empowered analytics against data structures, the return on the value of IT investment is quickly realized.

    Technological breakthroughs like Artificial Intelligence is having a disproportionate effect on financial services. It has the potential to introduce new sources of growth and is already changing how work is done. With its advanced self-learning algorithms, it is enhancing the professional judgment of finance professionals in finding “needle in a haystack” fraud attempts and material misstatements that otherwise would go unnoticed with antiquated approaches.

  • How data visualization can deliver clearer insights for the Finance industry
    How data visualization can deliver clearer insights for the Finance industry Eva Murray and Andy Kriebel Recorded: Jul 19 2017 64 mins
    Death to Spreadsheets!

    Despite the growing popularity of data visualization tools across all industries, the finance sector still relies heavily on seeing data presented in tabular form. Analysts in financial institutions often spend a large part of their day pouring over spreadsheets, extracting numbers, pivoting tables, running macros and making adjustments before creating static reports to print for management meetings.
    But what happens if you have another question?


    We argue that there is a better way to approach financial data and to unlock more of the collective brain power of your analysts. We will show you a number of options for visualizing financial results, highlighting trends and developing KPI dashboards that provide real insights quickly. Because there are more valuable things your staff could be doing than wrangling with spreadsheets
