Core banking systems renewal is no longer a matter of if, but when.
Cliche as it may sound, if you go to any number of analysts, vendors and industry experts, they're all saying the same thing: Right now, core systems is among the hottest topics in banking technology.
From identifying it as one of the 10 game-changing trends of 2011 to it the focus of the February digital issue, Bank Systems & Technology has certainly spent some time focusing on core banking systems in the recent past. Tomorrow, I'm excited to be moderating a webcast dedicated to core systems.
Wednesday's free online event, "Future-Proof Your Bank: Prioritizing Core System Upgrades for 2011 and and Beyond" will feature a short presentation on Bank Systems & Technology's recent core banking coverage, along with analysis from Bill Bradway, Managing Director of Bradway Research LLC and Paul Leadbetter, CSC Banking and Credit Services Global CTO. The hourlong presentation will cover how banks are looking to core renewal as a means to address regulatory needs, customer centricity and reduce costs, while at the same time growing executive and strategic reporting abilities. In it we'll cover current industry challenges in the wake of the financial crisis and new regulation, how core affects growth and the case for core systems renewal. Having seen the material our presenters plan to share, I can say with confidence that this event is jam-packed with relevant content for any bank exploring a potential core systems renewal or looking to do a little reconnaissance on what other banks are up to.
Event registration is open now, and in case you can't attend the live broadcast, feel free to register anyway and gain access to the recorded presentation later this week.
