About this talk

Data is becoming more crucial by the day to the financial services industry. Financial institutions are using their expanded data pools and cloud infrastructure to make better loans, improve their services and offerings to customers, comply with regulations, and detect fraud. Many companies, however, are not using data to its full potential. The old ‘data at rest model’ is becoming outdated as new ‘data in motion’ systems provide companies the ability to see how data changes as it flows through their organizations, enabling them to provide new applications and services to their customers and build out more efficient operating systems for their business. In this session, we explore how data in motion platforms empower financial services companies to make better decisions when it comes to the way they conduct operations and offer services. We discuss: -How financial institutions have incorporated data into their operations -The ways a ‘data in motion’ system differs from the old ‘data at rest’ system -How a ‘data in motion’ system helps companies improve their operations and expand their services -What the future of data looks like for financial services companies Our speakers: Duncan Ash is VP of Global Industries at Confluent.
