  • Building a Successful Omnichannel Strategy for Physical Stores Building a Successful Omnichannel Strategy for Physical Stores Geoff Nairn, Enterprise Solutions Specialist at Openbravo Recorded: Jul 21 2016 36 mins
    Consumers are rushing to embrace the benefits of omnichannel retailing by choosing retail brands and businesses that have adapted the shopping experience to fit their connected "always on" lives. The physical store will continue to play a central if changed role in this new scenario and so bricks-and-mortar retailers need to leverage the strengths of their existing physical store network and their brand to offer customers a transformational shopping experience across all channels.

    What Will You Learn?
    In this webinar we highlight how retailers are using omnichannel to create differentiated shopping experiences designed to boost sales and margins, build loyalty and achieve a sustainable competitive advantage. We explain how information technology can help retailers successfully implement key omnichannel concepts in a way that builds on the advantages of an existing physical store network and evolves at a pace the retailer can decide.

    Join Experis Finance for a complimentary, virtual panel webinar focused on whether or not your AML models for transaction monitoring perform according to regulatory expectations.

  • Mobile Authenitication and Mobile Fraud Mobile Authenitication and Mobile Fraud Kevin Donovan, VP Americas, BioCatch Recorded: Jul 13 2016 38 mins
    As the mobile channel is increasingly becoming the preferred method of banking and payments, traditional biometric authentication solutions such as fingerprint, face & voice recognition introduce friction to the mobile user experience as they require the user's active involvement in the enrollment and the authentication phase. By looking at specific cognitive parameters, Behavioral Biometric Authentication allows banks to protect their users while not impacting the end user experience.
  • Planning for financings in volatile markets Planning for financings in volatile markets Anna Pinedo and James Tanenbaum, Morrison & Foerster; Brian Maier, Geoffrey Goodman and Gregory Ogborn, Wells Fargo Recorded: Jul 12 2016 84 mins
    Volatile capital markets and the rapidly changing financial landscape make it important for issuers to recognise changes quickly and adjust their financing strategies accordingly.

    For example, for an issuer that contemplated an IPO or is in the IPO queue, it is important to become familiar with other financing alternatives, such as venture debt or late-stage or mezzanine debt, as well as institutional equity private placements. Each of these markets is quite different. Familiarity with investor expectations and documentation requirements is essential in order to put your company in the best position to make crisp decisions. For issuers that already have their securities listed on a non-US securities exchange, which may offer limited liquidity, it may be time to consider undertaking a US IPO in order to establish a more liquid market for their securities. Already public companies considering their next capital raise also must be nimble - a PIPE transaction may be an attractive (and available) financing alternative. During this session, the speakers will discuss:

    •Current market conditions;
    •Financing alternatives for pre-IPO companies;
    •The market for venture debt;
    •The late-stage (or cross-over) private placement market;
    •Options to consider on the way to an IPO;
    •The ReIPO™
    •Financing alternatives for recently public companies; and
    •PIPE transactions and other financing alternatives.

    The webinar's speakers will be:

    -Geoffrey Goodman, managing director, equity capital markets, Wells Fargo
    -Gregory Ogborn, director, equity capital markets, Wells Fargo
    -Brian Maier, vice chairman, Wells Fargo
    -Anna Pinedo, partner, Morrison & Foerster
    -James Tanenbaum, partner, Morrison & Foerster

  • 2014-2016 Survey Results: Can Corporate Sustainability save IT from itself? 2014-2016 Survey Results: Can Corporate Sustainability save IT from itself? Julian Kudritzki Recorded: Jun 16 2016 33 mins
    In 2015, less than a tenth of enterprise IT stakeholders had confidence in Corporate Sustainability to affect IT efficiency and costs. One short year later, 2016 is a vastly different matter and the data suggests that the time of corporate sustainability in IT is here now: 70% of enterprise IT organizations actively participate in corporate sustainability efforts.

    Senior executives are increasingly tasking all departments to work together to reduce resource consumption in the name of sustainability. The stakes are undeniably high, as sustainability efforts can impact important financial factors such as stock price and capitalization.

    In this webinar, Uptime Institute COO, Julian Kudritzki will present new survey data, illustrating the sweeping changes facing enterprise IT and sustainability efforts, including:

    -A snapshot of the current state of relations between enterprise IT and Sustainability counterparts.
    -How will Corporate Sustainability shape technology adoption trends as it begins to exercise its influence in IT decision making?
    -The ineffectual metrics and "green" signifiers which are no longer credible responses to increased cost pressures and the business demands for transparency.

    Banking Technology Webinar with Bank Of Irelend and Dell Services:

    In the past 2 years alone, large global banks have been fined more than $3Bn in fines for breaches of AML and CDD. As a result, global regulators have heightened the scrutiny of AML programs. Compliance Officers are seeking enhanced functions and improved processes from their KYC programs.

    Presenters from Banking Technology, Dell Services and Bank of Ireland provide a bank’s perspective on how they solved the KYC Challenge.

    Some of their key challenges include:

    •Lack of a single view for customer KYC information across multiple lines of business (Retail, Corporate, Investment)
    •Manual interventions for KYC processes and lack of automation
    •Non coherent KYC procedures
    •Absence of a risk based approach

    During the webcast we will discuss:

    •What's happening in the regulatory landscape in relation to AML, KYC and CDD/EDD.
    •What are some of the newer KYC approaches and solutions we see in the market today
    •What constitutes a comprehensive integrated end to end KYC integrated solution?
    •What type of automation can be provided for example to assist in searching structured & unstructured web sources
    •What type of governance might be required across business and technology functions to ensure a comprehensive approach
    •Does it make sense to centralise KYC operations onto one platform and to 'best shore' the delivery model?
    •How do you ensure best customer experience during the KYC process

  • Pricing Power: Optimize Retail Promotions for Competitive Advantage Pricing Power: Optimize Retail Promotions for Competitive Advantage Geoff Nairn, Enterprise Solutions Specialist at Openbravo Recorded: Jun 9 2016 40 mins
    Retailers face intense competition for a decreasing share of the customer's wallet and the challenges are even more acute in markets that are deflationary. Promotions now play an increasingly important role in growing sales but an excessive dependence on deep and broader discounts and promotions can damage not only the bottom line but also the brand.

    What Will You Learn?
    In this webinar, we highlight some of the trends that are driving the increased use of promotions and discounts in retailing. We explain how information technology can help retailers develop "smarter" promotional and discount strategies. These seek to influence customer behavior and boost loyalty instead of simply generating a short-lived sales boost or clearing inventories.

  • Policy-driven, Risk-based Security Policy-driven, Risk-based Security Audrey Gilchrist - GRC Team Leader at SureCloud and Amanda Ewing - Security Assurance Manager at Dentsu Aegis Network Recorded: May 11 2016 19 mins
    Policy is the corner stone of any risk-based security programme. Policies are put in place not only to govern the way organisations operate, but also to mitigate risks, and as such require board level backing and sign-off. Yet when it comes to security programmes information risk, both internally and externally, is often presented in terms un-meaningful to the board of directors. Using real world example, this session will present a model for effective risk-based security that engages senior executives.
