Webinars: The banking industry’s need for digitisation

Share this post:

As stated again a few weeks ago in my last blog post, I will continue to aim for arranging insightful and hopefully inspiring webinars around technology, digitisation etc.

Today I would like to present two webinars that are definitely worth watching. The first one has already taken place and is available on-demand and the second will take place on Wednesday 30th September. Both webinars are dealing with the banking industry and what customers and stakeholders are expecting and demanding from a technological perspective.

On-demand Webinar: A Look At The Post-Pandemic Bank & The Need For Extreme Digitisation

In this webinar, the CTO of Financial Services Nordic and Banking Industry Technical leader, Pål Krogdahl, discussed the future trends in banking following the pandemic.

Krogdahl addressed the disruption that the banking industry is enduring and the consequent need for rapid and comprehensive digitisation.
The new innovations of fintech and its impact on technology, regulations, and people were elaborated on while considering how this affects performance and the overall customer experience. Likewise, the applications of AI in the banking industry was examined, in which the advantages of the disruptive platform business models are elucidated.

The Clients Are Changing Habits – What About The Banks?

Digital and mobile technologies have been changing customers’ banking behaviour. Most banks have already found it difficult to catch up. The struggle worsened overnight with the COVID-19 outbreak. Now more than ever banks must become more customer-centric.

In this webinar, Danny Tang, IBM Industry Academy Member and the Global Banking Front Office Transformation Leader, will discuss the challenges and trends in digital banking and how banks can transform progressively. Danny will share IBM’s point of view and how leading banks are taking on this challenge by building a hyper modular architecture leveraging open platforms.

Sign up for the webinar!

I am very much looking forward to presenting Danny to this webinar next week, and I hope you will join us for an exciting session. If you have any questions or suggestions for subjects to cover, please feel free to contact me at
