Disruptive technologies, including cognitive, robotic process automation, and blockchain, will be in use at 50% of banks worldwide by 2020, accelerating digital transformation by 30%

Source: IDC Financial Insights, 2017

Pushed forward by regulations and the new realities of digital competition, the financial services industry has timewarped into the “open era”. Ecosystems are expanding and new partnerships are forged on-the-go, while traditional infrastructures and mindsets must adapt to a different way of doing business.

APIs have not only enabled systems to communicate with each other more quickly and efficiently, but they will ultimately allow organizations to focus on their real value through specialization.

The key themes of the IDC Financial Forum 2017 will look at the digital open era journey, how pioneers are preparing, and what pitfalls face the finance industry.


  • Opening the Core to new partners: How can banks stay on top?
  • Futureproofing: co-opetition with Fintech/Insurtech
  • Human Capital: Recruiting and retaining despite new competitors
  • Technology implementation: Driving profits or cutting losses?
  • Right these ways: integrated experience through branch transformation
  • Mobile payments: smartphones instead of cash economy
  • Cryptocurrencies and Cryptoeconomies: will unregulated currencies come to the real world?
  • GDPR: are we really using what we should be protecting?
  • Robotic Process Automation: can something terrible happen?
  • Where does the journey lead – banking as a platform, open ecosystems, data as an asset or business as usual?
