This will be our fifth Banking Technology conference, one of the most prominent intellectual workshops of the banking and IT sectors and fintech companies. This year's event will focus on the digital transition of banks and the major business and technological development paths taken by the sector.
Digital service has never been more important to banks as the coronavirus pandemic brings masses of customers to online channels, where they expect the same high-level digital customer experience in this tightly regulated industry as they are getting from Facebook or Google.
The big questions of the year include what novel services will be launched this year based on the recently introduced instant payments system, what the future of debit card payment solutions will be, and how banks plan to create value in the payment market.
Utilising existing data assets is also a key issue, with extra emphasis on the implementation of new technologies supporting digitalisation and agile operation. Meanwhile, PSD2 service providers are becoming increasingly active, the fintech ecosystem is developing nicely, and open banking has reached Hungary. Where will incumbents and their suppliers move next?
