This Third Annual Event Will Feature Industry and Banking Experts, as well as Executives from Amazon Web Services, IBM, Salesforce and More as They Address the Financial Industry’s Most Pressing Challenges and Opportunities
NEW YORK, NY (September 28, 2023) — Sopra Steria, a European tech leader recognized for its consulting, digital services and software, and Sopra Banking Software (SBS) the global financial technology software company that more than 1,500 financial institutions rely on to digitally transform the way they operate and access new revenue streams, today announced the complete agenda for their third annual Sopra Banking Summit.
The event, set to be held from October 10-12, will gather global executives from companies including Société Générale, Mercedes-Benz, World Bank, Vero Technologies, Standard Bank, Toyota, Nationwide Building Society, NatWest Group, Argenta, and BMWFS for three days of panel discussions, roundtables, demos and workshops. Attendance at the 2023 Summit is currently on track to surpass last year’s 15,000 participants, and includes 40 of Europe’s top 50 leading banks.
The emergence of fintechs and digital-first financial providers has completely evolved the financial landscape—and driven banks and financial institutions to redefine their roles in the industry. As part of this, these traditional organizations have started to embrace new digital infrastructures, enabling new business models of their own. The challenges they faced in a once unknown, digital-first ecosystem have now transformed into entirely new opportunities to grow their customer base and market share—both in the financial industry and beyond.
Now one of the finance industry’s largest privately-owned summits, the 2023 Sopra Banking Summit will host technologists, financial industry decision-makers, cutting-edge fintech executives and more, to discuss the future of finance and decode the latest industry trends. This year’s event will equip attendees with expert insights and knowledge to formulate a digital finance roadmap that builds a lasting impact on customer retention and revenue growth.
The digital agenda features a series of discussions and roundtables with leading global companies, covering topics including finance, cloud-based banking, financial regulations, future mobility, open finance, cybersecurity in banking, and more:
- Amazon Web Services’ Yves Eychenne, Senior Manager, Solutions Architect, on “Looking for elasticity and scalability: move SaaS”
- IBM’s Christophe Sorré, CTO Financial Services France, on “CxOs dialogues with IBM: Decoding AI-enabled Banking”
- Salesforce’s Paulin De Boysson, Regional Director Marketing Cloud, on “Marketing for banks: retaining continuous attention”
- Newgen’s Runki Goswami, Global Marketing Head, Newgen Software, and Varun Ghai, Head Of Consulting And Presales UK & Europe, on “Digital lending: edge of automated origination”
- Axway’s Emmanuel Methivier, Business Program Director, on “TechFuel for Revenue Growth: Unleash Open Finance”
- Sopra Banking Software’s Eric Bierry, CEO, on “Financial technology at Summit: better banking now”
“Banks are no longer in the pioneering phase of their digital journeys. They’re now starting to see the tangible results of their investments in digitization—by way of new customers, business models and streams of revenue—which are all powering a new sense of digital momentum among traditional financial institutions. But these new digital opportunities won’t come without new challenges. We’ve designed this year’s Sopra Banking Summit to address both sides of that coin.”said Eric Bierry, CEO at Sopra Banking Software.
