Technology is reshaping banking in New Zealand

Globally, as technology companies continue to move into banking, banks increasingly resemble technology companies—the lines are blurring. As the pace of change accelerates in New Zealand, this shift promises the necessary velocity to stay ahead. For banking, that includes the introduction of new transformational strategies, structures, and methodologies.

Some cultural, technological, and procedural developments are challenging, and not everything can change simultaneously. One of the critical debts that can be observed is teams overcomplicating solutions when, now more than ever, simplification is crucial to success. Leaders now look to address several trends that are advancing the simplification of technology capability.

  • How are banks improving customer experience through digital tools and technology? Are banks experiencing digital fatigue?
  • How can banks successfully leverage the benefits of the latest cloud technologies?
  • How can banks become future-proof with a progressive SaaS approach?
