The event kick-started with a panel discussion regarding the advent of futuristic technologies into the banking and financial services industry. The entire digital transformation journey of banking institutions, through the years, with the incorporation of AI, Machine Learning, and Robo-Advisors was charted at length. The panellists even shed light on how through the strategic leveraging of ‘Cloud’ services, the Banking and Financial Services Industry (BFSI) was able to accelerate corporate and fiscal growth.
The show proceeded further on with tech-talks and keynote presentations by the industry veterans and thought leaders, whom were representing some of the biggest institutions in the country. At the networking breaks, the delegates were able to unwind from the invigorating discussions and connect with brands personally. Some of the Top brands that were present at the venue were Intel, Fujitsu, Redington, Darktrace, Thales eSecurity, Enquero, Kuliza, Qualitia, Zensoft, KGISL, Neosoft, Just Dispose, Positka and, Finesse IT Solutions.

One of the highlights of the panel discussions was the importance of ‘Customer Experience’ in the banking industry. This was explained in length through a panel discussion which comprised of influential industry experts: Srinivasarao Muppaneni, Group CIO for the Andhra Pradesh & Telangana State Cooperative Banks; Jyothirlatha B, CTO of DHFL; Manoj Mauni, Vice President of IT for Kotak Mahindra Bank Ltd; Nikhil Bandi, CIO & Head of Operations for Vistaar Financial Services Pvt Ltd and Abhijit Shah, CTO for DCB Bank. The panel was moderated by Prasanna Lohar, Chief Innovation Officer for DCB Bank Ltd. During the discussion, Abhijit Shah had mentioned that “Customer experience has come a long as the customer has realised the value of his own needs. A few years ago, an average customer would have been happy to receive a confirmation email stating his account would be activated in 30 days. Today, the customer will be at the competition’s doorstep if such a delay persists”.
The culmination of the event was the ‘BIG 50 BFSI Leaders Awards’ and, ‘BIG 50 BFSI Innovators Awards’, where 50 innovators and 50 industry veterans who have brought about progressive changes in their organisations through the inculcation of future technologies, were honoured in a glamorous awards ceremony.
