Webcast Summary

Just as technological advances led to the emergence of oil as the fuel that powered the 20th century, technological advances are now bringing about the emergence of data as the fuel that powers the 21st century. Financial services firms in particular have devoted much of their attention to data, with a focus on improving customers' access to data on a variety of devices. Yet financial services firms have not always been able to provide their back-office workforces with the same ease of access to data that the firms' customers have come to expect from the front office.

During this Webcast, we will reveal:

  • Why financial services firms are recognizing the need to dedicate resources to back-office operations, with a focus on streamlining access to and management of data,
  • What finance leaders at financial services firms need to know about cloud-based infrastructures and other technological advances that support the emergence of data as the "new oil" powering the back office, and
  • How finance leaders will need to collaborate with other senior executives to identify and develop capabilities that are necessary to elevate the role of the back office in financial services firms.
