Future Trends: Transformation of IT Architecture, Open Platforms and Financial Cloud
"Digitalization, the mobile internet and inclusive finance are three major trends that will reshape the financial services industry in the future," said Emmanuel Daniel, Founder and CEO of The Asian Banker, during his keynote speech.
"Huawei is committed to working with our customers and partners in the financial industry to reshape industry-specific IT architecture that will accelerate business transformation and meet evolving customer needs," said David He, President of Marketing and Solution Sales, Enterprise Business Group, Huawei.
"While Huawei has already established several best practices in areas such as cloud, big data and innovative service channels for finance, we will continue to innovate to provide customers from the financial industry with open, resilient, safe and cost-efficient IT platforms, intelligent and comprehensive data systems, and agile service channels," said He.
"As businesses continue to develop, problems triggered by multi-center construction and centralized architecture have become more prevalent. Based on service-oriented architecture (SOA), the China Construction Bank's self-developed next-generation infrastructure with a cloud computing-based hierarchical design supports services with unified management capabilities, said Panshi Jin, General Manager, Information Technology Management Department, China Construction Bank Corporation.
As part of a white paper titled Transformation and Reconstruction of Banks in the Digital Era, released at the summit, Huawei and Deloitte highlighted the need for banks to implement a digitalization strategy supplemented by powerful and supportive systems, and IT capability construction.
