The tidal wave of digital financial services driven by the pandemic has put data and analytics squarely at the centre of growth strategies for FSIs. But as customers demand ever-more personalised and efficient products and services many firms are struggling to keep up, with vital data stuck in silos and legacy systems making it a near impossible challenge to draw out key insights.

And as agile competitors complete their cloud transformation, more traditional players risk missing out on the benefits of Big Data, analytics and AI-driven processes. In addition, many are having to focus their efforts on trying to navigate an increasingly complex data landscape and adhere to data governance, regulatory and compliance requirements.

As a result, many FSIs are turning towards end-to-end data platforms, which use AI, machine learning and automation to consolidate data and unlock the potential of data assets to drive efficiencies and create value .This roundtable with senior industry peers will explore the key challenges and opportunities for FSIs as they explore the potential of modern data and analytics platforms to fuel transformation.
