Black Swan Events: Impact and Implications
We speak to execs, commentators and industry thought leaders to get their thoughts on how Covid-19 has impacted industries already, expected and surprising outcomes, any hindsight learnings to be taken from previous black swans, what to expect in 2021 and get insights into what smart people and firms are doing to get ahead.
Throughout season 3 we've continued to chat through our well-trodden topics of data, intelligent automation and digital transformation but with a Black Swan lens. For our last episode of the season, we've pulled together some of our guests' thoughts on learnings so far, what we can expect in the near term and what the power of hindsight has really taught us.
Jibran Ahmed, Executive Director at Capco, has a passion for people, technology and organisational change. We look at the effect a human-centric approach to change can have on digital transformation at some of the largest banks, why top-down approaches to change are still hampering transformation and why we have to put power into the hands of the business user.
Sam Riley is a member of the executive board at Clearstream and Head of Investor Services and Financing. Listen as Sam outlines an industry vision for tax services, and the key role automation and digitisation play in creating a standard by which tax reclaims, relief at source and other tax items are processed.
Puma Energy's Tanay Tiwary thoughtfully outlines the challenges still facing firms in the arena of digital transformation, the promise vs reality of RPA technologies and takes us through some of his more recent no-code automation projects.
Xceptor's very own Product Director, Trevor LaFleche calls for more Automation Ambition, with plenty of scope left for improvement across the enterprise. We discuss the value of end-to-end automation and why task-based RPA tools can only get you so far.
The DTCC's Val Wotton gives us the inside track on the realities within the post trade ecosystem, the impact of the pandemic and whether firms have finally reached an inflection point on Operations investment.
PJ Di Giammarino, CEO & founder of JWG Group, shares invaluable insight into the future of regulation, what key challenges remain, and which have been exacerbated by the pandemic.
This season we're speaking to leaders from the likes of EY, the DTCC and JWG, covering regulation, intelligent automation and the power of hindsight, as we remain in a global pandemic.
