The Roadmap to Enterprise Scale Intelligent Automation
Virtual Platform
|
Masterclass

Description:
Many financial services institutions are built on complex process architectures that have evolved over decades, especially for major product groups such as loans and credit cards. The sector has traditionally deployed large volumes of people to undertake repetitive and mundane tasks, often using old and non-interoperable technologies. Over time, this approach has introduced high levels of manual handoffs, bottlenecks, staff attrition and data inaccuracies. And it has inhibited productivity, profitability and competitiveness. Most importantly, this traditional operating model, where people have been used as the glue to unite systems and processes, created barriers that have prevented employees from investing their unique human skills in areas where they can make a real impact.

In this session, you will gain key insights from global research uncovering the digital workforce opportunities in financial services and insurance.  You will also get to understand what to focus on in Trust, Culture and Change management when considering a hybrid workforce, and lastly, what to consider when establishing, governing and scaling a digital workforce at pace.

FRACTALS & CHAOS in Nature & Finance
Virtual Platform

Masterclass

Description:
An educational masterclass about Fractals and Chaos. Fractals can be found everywhere in nature. Plenty of easy to understand examples are given and explained like the famous Mandelbrot set. Fractals can also be used to describe not just nested and rough objects but also complex processes and dynamical feedback systems such as capital markets and population dynamics. The spontaneous emergence of chaos in such systems is often observed even though they may be caused by some very simple rules and deterministic mechanisms. The interplay of fractals, multi-fractals and chaos is one of the key reasons why financial markets are mostly unpredictable.

Description:
As businesses increasingly go digital, what are the knock-on effects on Asia Pacific’s (APAC’s) networks?

We wanted to find out whether these networks – the high-density cabling systems snaking across oceans and between data centre campuses – are becoming increasingly stressed at the edges as they support more users, more devices, more applications and more services. Just how resilient and readily available to users are they? And what are the implications for those APAC businesses seeking to use or offer cloud and other on-demand services, including ultra-fast transactions informed by real-time intelligence?
