Composable banking: driving transformation in financial services

23 November 2023, South America 10:30 am - 12:00 pm CST

How unlocking the full potential of cloud-native composability is helping financial services companies innovate with speed and stability

As younger generations raised on frictionless digital experiences represent more of today’s customer base, consumer demand is changing. Modern financial services customers want digital products and services that eliminate the friction associated with traditional banking.

Fintechs and challenger banks are emerging, ready to meet this growing demand. They operate more like tech companies than financial institutions, with a single-minded focus on continuously delivering customer value. In this new world, how can incumbents maintain their competitive advantage? How should transformation be tackled in order to support quick product launches, superlative customer experience, automation, scaling, and greater resilience?

One of the most powerful ways traditional banks can meet these demands is by adopting cloud-native composable banking. In this session, experts from Thoughtworks, along with a group of your industry peers, will explore the demand for digital experiences, define what composable banking is, and discuss strategies to deliver your transformation goals and strategic vision for the future.
