Financial Tech

Deutsche Messe Worldwide’s Financial Tech 2013 on Day Two of CeBIT Australia 2013 began with a Plenary Session shared with the Cloud and eGovernment conferences.

Featuring a high-profile technologist from the Obama for America 2012 team – the campaign’s Chief Technology Officer Harper Reed – as well as two ministerial keynote addresses, the plenary session was a highlight of the entire CeBIT Global Conferences program for the 2013.

Harper Reed’s sharp and insightful presentation was full of anecdotes of the technology challenges that were overcome as part of the Obama re-election. These insights, which related to rapid application development, to cloud roll-outs and scalability issues, were as relevant to a political campaign as they were the broader business technology challenges.

The ministerial address was presented by New South Wales Finance Minister Greg Pearce.

Minister Pearce outlined how the NSW Government has consolidated its data centre infrastructure and added significant Cloud expertise to improve service delivery.

Deutsche Messe Worldwide was able to draw on its global expertise in the financial conference sector in Europe, most recently taking the lead from the banking forum conducted at CeBIT in Hannover and sponsored by NORD/LB.

 

 

Other Financial Tech 2013 highlights included:

  • A keynote from ANZ bank Chief Technology Officer Patrick Maes addressing strategies to “Maintain Customer Relevance in a Digitised Future.” Maes is a coveted speaker, and is responsible for defining the technology direction for the bank, ensuring it aligns technology investments align with business strategy.
  • An international keynote from DBS Bank (Singapore) Chief Innovation Officer Steve Monaghan on “Looking From the Outside In – Driving Innovation From A Customer Perspective.”
  • Credit Union Australia Chief Information Officer David Gee on “Reaping the Benefits of a Fundamental Infrastructure Overhaul.”
