About the summit

Infosys Finacle is pleased to invite you to Digital Banking South Africa 2019, an exclusive closed door meet on the latest in banking technology, on Tuesday, January 29, 2019.

The banking business is undergoing fundamental shifts driven by digital forces, multiple new channels, nimble new competition and new technologies like Blockchain and AI. All of this is re-shaping banking, to make it more open, collaborative and more invisible. How equipped is your bank to embrace these shifts, and continue to be relevant and succeed in the emerging ecosystem?

With the theme of ‘Transforming for the future’, this meet will feature seasoned subject matter experts from Forrester and Infosys Finacle, and senior banking executives, to deliberate on emergent developments and what it will take for your bank to be ‘fit for the future’. At the meet, expect to discuss case studies of Finacle client banks from across the world, on how they are adapting to the industry shifts to create new revenue streams and innovative ways of customer engagement.

We request you to please confirm your participation by registering. We look forward to meeting you at the Digital Banking South Africa 2019.

We look forward to meeting you.
