2012 Celent Banking Innovation & Insight Day Roundup

2012 Celent Banking Innovation & Insight Day Roundup
Last Wednesday, Celent hosted its fifth annual Banking Innovation & Insight Day. We had a full house of energetic attendees, and a solid crew of dynamic panelists and presenters. After a brief welcome address we launched right into the agenda with a panel session on tablet banking. We did things a little differently this year, with each of the panelists (from USAA, CIBC, and Stellar One Bank) giving brief demos of their iPad apps. The demos were followed by a stimulating discussion on tablets and how they are changing the digital banking landscape. The mobile theme continued right into the next session – a panel discussion on the future of mobile banking and payments. Panelists from Wells Fargo, SunTrust, and Standard Chartered prognosticated on future mobile innovations and the potential of mobile payments. Right after lunch we were extremely honoured to present awards to the banks selected for our 2012 Model Bank initiative. The audience was also given the privilege of hearing from two of the model bank award winners – Redstone Federal Credit Union and Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Stay tuned for a blog entry on the model bank awards from Bob Meara. In the afternoon session we introduced the topic of industry disruption and invited a bank speaker (from Citi) and a start-up speaker (from Social Money / SmartyPig) to talk about disruptive initiatives in banking. One of the highlights of the day was definitely the energetic and thought provoking presentation given by Yobie Benjamin, CTO of Citi Transaction Services and Citi Enterprise Payments. There were quite a number of tweeters in the room providing an event play by play. We invite you to review what folks had to say about the event on Twitter . Bank Systems and Technology published a couple of articles regarding the event: If you would like to see a few photos from the event please visit our Flickr photostream. All presentations from the event are available for Celent clients to download on our web site. We look forward to seeing you at our next event!
