Selecting back office systems is probably a tougher call today than it was even five years ago. The number of options has grown and looks set to continue to do so for some time. While there has been some consolidation in certain areas of the market, the increasing maturity of service oriented architectures (SOA) and the ambitions of vendors, such as Microsoft and SAP, not traditionally seen as suppliers of back office systems, have made buying decisions more difficult.

There is a growing realisation that system selection is just one component in optimising operations. Without a radical examination of the underlying processes within the organisation, banks are unlikely to unlock the true potential of their substantial investment in new and existing technology. If you think you have hit a wall in terms of streamlining and cost reduction, then now is the time to think again

IBS have hand picked the most relevant and knowledgeable speakers - based on qualitative (30-50 banks were interviewed to identify themes) and quantitative (annual Sales League Table of core system selection) research.

In addition to presenting the 2007 IBS Sales League Table, this conference will take a look at the reasons why some organisations have stepped beyond the comfort zone in their system choices and the steps they have taken to limit the associated risks. The conference will also review some of the latest thinking about process change and the lessons that can be learned from other industry sectors, which have pioneered new approaches.

Workshop (available to banks only) – 29th February

Transformation in the back office is not all about replacing point systems. The real quantum leap for many institutions will come from a much wider reengineering, starting at the process and data level. New architectures and strategies are being adopted underpinned by specialist business process components, within an SOA framework. What will the back office of the future look like?
