The new “I” in CIO and IT

David Berlind, Editor-in-Chief, ProgrammableWeb

Track: All

Over the last five years, the physical barriers to almost every major IT problem have evaporated. Connectivity is omnipresent. The Internet is now a bottomless pit of compute and storage. Machine learning models and artificial intelligence for routine business tasks are one millionth their former cost. APIs can stream the right data at just the right time to the right imperative. All that’s really left for you to do is to organise the enabling ecosystem, and put the new “I” in CIO and IT to work.  In this session, led by ProgrammableWeb Editor-in-Chief David Berlind, learn about how to create and set in motion API strategies and create thriving ecosystems.

Inventive banking – how to get ahead

Colin Payne, VP and Global Lead, NextGen Financial Services

Track: All

Hyper-connected customers are driving the development of the open digital economy. Banks have a fundamentally different role to play in this new world where ownership becomes sharing, product is experience, data the asset and we partner rather than build or buy. Those that adapt successfully to this new open architecture will look beyond regulation, beyond product silos, beyond segments, even beyond banking, to build new value propositions underpinned by data, trust and identity. How can banks make this leap successfully? How do they fend off competition from technology giants and other challengers, and develop their partner ecosystems? This talk will explore how leading established banks, challengers and FinTechs are redrawing the boundaries of banking and how they can position themselves for success in an age of open everything.

How APIs are reinventing the transportation industry

Arvind Pal Singh, Head of Europe Business Consulting - Energy, Utilities, Transportation and Logistics, Cognizant, Sanchit Khandelwal, Head of Group Digital Products, National Express

Track: All

The transportation sector is undergoing a tectonic shift due to Digital. Empirical evidence show that, in next 5-10 years, there will be a sea-change in the way transportation services have been consumed in the past. And this future is already being shaped by digital technologies such as IoT, Cloud, Robotics, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. One element that is corner stone for this transformational journey is data. Sharing accurate, high volume, high velocity data seamlessly between the members of the transportation ecosystem is becoming a key success factor for delivering safe, secure, punctual movement of people, goods and services and a hyper personalised experience for the passengers. The role of intelligent integration tools, middleware and Application Programming Interfaces (API) have become critical to enable this success. Cognizant is working with transport industry leaders in the UK and across the globe helping them navigate this digital shift.
