While opinions vary as to just how strong and sustained the economic recovery is, the banking industry for the most part is moving forward. Industry reports show modest increases in IT spending -- and much of that investment focus is on core systems. Bankers no longer need to be persuaded that their legacy systems are holding them back from the kinds of targeted, speedy and compliant efforts that make the difference in today's competitive environment. The questions now have more to do with how to make an effective business case for core systems transformation, how to identify and mitigate the risks of such a project, how to track and measure the results, and what it means in terms of customer relationships.

You can hear top executives from leading firms including North Shore Credit Union, The Payments Authority, Farm Bureau Bank, Accenture and Celent debate these questions at Bank Systems & Technology's second annual Virtual Event , "The Optimized Enterprise: Creating a More Competitive and Efficient Bank," taking place this Thursday, June 23, 2011. Topics to be covered during the Virtual Event include:

  • Seizing the Moment: Organizational Transformation for Competitive Advantage
  • Improving Collaboration and Communications to Support Transactional Proficiency and Customer Relationship Excellence
  • Calculating the New Value Proposition for Core Systems Strategies
