Synopsis and overview of the session
IT leaders in the Financial Services Industry must find ways to accelerate digital transformation and application development cycles to stay competitive. Application development and testing cycles are too often bottlenecked by complex processes used to manage and deliver test data.
In fact, recent estimates suggest that test data delivery for Fortune 500 companies is best measured in days or weeks, instead of minutes or hours. Best-in-class IT departments, though, are discovering new ways to overcome these inefficiencies. If organisations can achieve this, it eliminates one of the biggest bottlenecks enabling them to quickly build or update software for trading, risk management, mobile banking apps, analytics and more.
Focus Network, in partnership with Delphix, will be bringing leading IT executives from financial services organsiations in a live discussion that will dive into these issues and the answers around how they can accelerate their digital transformation and gain a competitive edge through data delivery.
