IBM will be hosting IBM Think 2019 from February 12-15 this year at a new location in San Francisco, CA. And the conference holds an impressive line up of education and activities for financial leaders focused on:

  • Reshaping the customer experience with new business models supporting an integrated ecosystem-based marketplace

At Think, financial services companies can develop a strategic point of view and prospective roadmap to lead their organizations into the future.

In addition to sessions on platforms, cloud, AI & automation, big data, and security, companies will find many financial services specific sessions with customer speakers addressing topics such as blockchain, risk management, and technology adoption for core financial services processes. Financial services leaders such as RBS, Bank of China, Garanti Bank, Lloyd’s Banking Group, UBS, UBank, CLS, ING, Banco de Brasil, Societe Generale, Trustmark, Vpay, Bradesco, Banco BAI, Finanz, Raiffeisen Bank International and many more, will share their success stories and how they are changing the world.
