Conference Deep-Dive:

Banking & Investment Services Industry CIOs and IT Executives

Join Banking & Investment Services CIOs and Senior IT Executives for the must-attend leadership conference of 2018

Throughout 2018, the core of all the research done by Gartner’s Banking and Investment Services team has been “How to become a digital bank.” The focus of the banking track at Symposium/ITxpo on the Gold Coast is no different. Banks are convinced about why they need to change — now they need guidance on how to make that change happen. So this track presents a mix of the visionary and the practical on subjects such as scenario planning, digital key performance indicators (KPIs), artificial intelligence (AI), cloud, digital maturity, innovation, data centricity and data monetization.
