Thursday, April 25th, 18:30 SGT

An expert moderator will guide the knowledge-sharing event, stimulating discussion between participants in a closed, confidential environment. Attendance is complimentary and by invitation only.

Balancing Act: Navigating Agility and Resilience in the Banking and Financial Sector

Fostering agility and digital operational resilience in financial institutions is a balancing act between embracing speed and flexibility and ensuring stability amid disruptions. Cloud-native technologies play a crucial role in driving agility through scalable, flexible solutions like containerisation and microservices, which facilitate modular development and rapid deployment. Conversely, improving digital operational resilience necessitates strategies like reducing software concentration risks through a multi-vendor approach.

This approach mitigates the impact of vendor-related disruptions by diversifying technology stacks, especially for mission-critical applications. For instance, employing multiple Kubernetes distributions ensures continuous operations during part failures. Additionally, the escalating threat of cyber attacks, including ransomware and software supply chain exploits, underscores the importance of digital resilience. By strategically integrating agile practices with robust resilience measures, financial institutions can navigate the complex digital landscape effectively.

  • What are the key challenges financial institutions face in balancing agility with digital operational resilience?
  • What strategies can financial institutions implement to effectively reduce software concentration risks and enhance digital operational resilience?
  • How is the evolving landscape of cyber threats shaping the future of digital operational resilience strategies in the financial sector?

Join leaders interested in pioneering innovative solutions to navigate the complexities of agility and digital operational resilience in the rapidly evolving financial landscape.

Job titles may include Head of Infrastructure, Head of DevOps, Head of Platform Engineering, and other senior decision-makers.
