Financial services organizations are accepting the advantages of cloud deployment because they are seeing that unified ecosystems, more agility, and better management of investments are all great for business.

If Your CRM Doesn't Take Integration Seriously, How Can It Offer Seamless Access To All Data?

Working with data is always tricky because there's so much that can go wrong so quickly.

This is what makes relationship hierarchies so important.

Disruption in Motion: Chief Data & Analytics Officer Financial Conference 2018

The customer experience, now more than ever, is the bar we use to predict the health and growth potential of a business. Most major financial institutions are taking this to heart by adapting their services to deliver the “delightful” customer experience we’ve come to expect as consumers (think Amazon, Netflix, and Uber.) I was reminded of the sea change that is moving our industry towards intelligent customer management while at the Chief Data Analytics Officers (CDAO) event in Boston last month. I contributed to a panel discussion about the emergence of machine learning in financial services, where I was joined by industry peers with first-hand experience transforming their business with data-driven insights. The efforts of fellow panelists and thought leaders, like José Murillo of Banorte, were on full display. Our lively exchange made clear that the disruptive forces of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning are here to stay.
