Stay ahead of the game and in touch with your clients!

Competitors are going global and targeting your clients down the street. Traditional business processes and products and services won't cut it in an environment that demands flexibility, agility and speed. Wherever you look, the latest social network or blog feeds your clients information. This "noise" tells your client what to think, what to buy and who to buy it from. You no longer are the main distributor of product or knowledge. Your clients - whether consumer or corporate - are now in the driver's seat, sifting through the information they need to guide their financial present and future. Your enterprise must plot a course to succeed in this world.

At the 2007 Gartner Financial Services Information Technology Summit, you'll find business and IT strategies and tools to deliver through many alternative client experiences, and deal with clients on their terms - before they deal with someone else.

Building on the success of the 2006 event, the Gartner Financial Services Summit 2007 is packed with European focussed content spread across 3 tracks:

Business Strategy - Financial services institutions must find ways of dealing with the change in the balance in power from provider to consumer. Applying 21st century technology to 20th century processes won't be enough. This track provides scenarios for the future and offers advice and insight on how expected changes in the financial services business environment will affect technology initiatives.

Operational Excellence - Aligning business and IT so that they work effectively together is easy to describe but hard to achieve. Poor linkage can damage not just your operations but also your reputation with the customer. This track provides practical "how-to" advice on how sourcing models, architectures and optimization can all help to realize those synergies between business and technology. Vendor selection criteria and sourcing success stories will give you the tools to put into action what you learned during these presentations when you return to the office.

Technology & Application - New technologies can help transform your business, but if poorly executed or ill-chosen, they can destroy value. This track dissects the technologies and applications most relevant to bankers, investment firms and insurers. Re-architecting for the future will be a key focus, with its consequent impact on sourcing, applications and the vendor offerings that target financial services firms.

PLUS New for 2007

Virtual Track: Emerging Trends & Technologies (New) - The Financial Services industry has long been regarded by other sectors as the leader in the adoption of new technologies. This "virtual" track focuses on the emerging technologies and strategies that must be considered by Financial Services organizations who wish to stay in touch with their customers - and one step ahead of the competition.
