Technology can be a fantastic tool for advancing social and economic development.
Innovations in branchless banking, mobile, cloud computing and payment systems are changing the way people access financial services, especially those who have previously been excluded from formal banking services or those in hard to reach areas.
However, innovation is being stalled due to some major infrastructural barriers such as poor connectivity, a lack of political support, incorrect regulation, awkward industry partnerships and a lack of capital.
This year’s inaugural ICT Infrastructure Summit will address:
• The main telecommunication infrastructure hurdles in increasing banking access
• The role of industry players including development banks, telcos, software providers, national governments and MFIs
• Tomorrow’s newest technologies including the next stage for mobile, branchless banking, cloud based systems, biometrics and mHealth
As growth economies begin to develop increasingly complex ICT infrastructures to increase the accessibility, efficiency and reliability of banking, it has never been more important for all the stakeholders to gather in one place to address the challenges and hurdles they are facing.
It is only through multi-discipline knowledge sharing and collaboration, that real solutions can be found and real progress be made.
The ICT Infrastructure Summit: Banking Solutions in Growth Economies in London this November, provides a solutions driven forum for debate on up-to-date progress-critical issues. Leave the event with invaluable new contacts, an in depth understanding of the newest technologies and regulations and use the information to inform your upcoming infrastructure growth strategies.
Topics to be covered and Challenges to be solved:
• Work together to find a solution to poor connectivity: Addressing the impact of satellites, upgraded cabling networks and changing regulation at a national and regional level
• Hear directly from the world’s largest central and development banks on their role in upgrading current ICT infrastructure
• Understand the infrastructure needed to support a continuing alliance between telecoms and banking providers
• Explore the role of Microfinance Banks as a delivery channel when providing banking to those in hard to reach regions
• Find out how tomorrow’s infrastructure is being prepared to cope with the next stage of branchless bank
