Are disruptive innovations transforming the financial services landscape, or are we simply in the middle of a new technology cycle?

Since being propelled into the spotlight in 2009, the FinTech industry has grown exponentially and now stands at more 12,000 FinTech companies worldwide.

Education: Cyber 101 – Artificial Intelligence for Information Security

InfoSec (information security) professionals are facing cyber threats that are increasing in both volume and complexity. Over the past year many discussions have taken place with security leaders about the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in InfoSec. Those discussions have highlighted a level of confusion concerning AI concepts.

Forward compatibility

Forward compatibility is a capability to plan ahead for gradual adoption by an ecosystem. This is about knowing HOW to get to the new/next destination:

• How do you rally the main stakeholders of the ecosystem into a rigorous system and process innovation? Process innovation is different from process-, datamodel-, or messaging standardisation. It is not about standardising the existing, and guaranteeing backwards compatibility. It is about co-creating a new reality
