Intelligent Environments, a leading provider of digital financial services software, today announces the launch of The Digital Banking Club in conjunction with Retail Banker International, Cards International, and Electronic Payments International publications.
The heart of the free members-only Digital Banking Club is a website – www.thedigitalbankingclub.com – centred on a knowledge hub that will be the first stop for the latest thinking and information on all things related to digital financial services. The Club will also deliver a series of webinars, as well as face-to-face events.
Digital solutions have transformed our daily lives for the better. It has become the norm for people the world over to expect access to information and their personal data from wherever they are, whenever they want. Bank details and accounts are no different, and consumers have become more reliant than ever before on digital banking solutions. For all players in this space, whether they be retail, commercial, or universal banks, card and payment providers, or even telecommunications and retail organisations, keeping up with the fast moving digital financial services space is time consuming. It is with this in mind that the The Digital Banking Club was established – to be a single place to find all the latest news, research and thinking in this area.
Membership of The Digital Banking Club is free – simply register on the website in order to join – and is open to anyone with an interest in the digital financial services space. Members are actively encouraged to share news, research, views, and opinions – the only rule for members is ‘no selling’.
David Webber, Managing Director, Intelligent Environments, said: “We are delighted to announce the launch of The Digital Banking Club. Intelligent Environments has been at the heart of the digital financial services space for over 15 years and we really understand this constantly evolving market. We are passionate about connecting money to people whenever and however they wish to connect, and The Digital Banking Club is again about connecting people to what they want and need – in this case connecting people to the information required to stay abreast of the digital financial services space.”
Douglas Blakely, Group Editor, Consumer Finance, Timetric, said “We are witnessing a seismic, once-in-a-lifetime structural change in customers’ financial services behaviour, with the volume of financial tranactions via digital channels widely expected to double by 2015. And by 2020, it is forecast that 70% to 90% of retail banking revenues – depending on the market – could be triggered thanks to digital channels. There has never been a more appropriate time for the creation of such a useful and innovative project as The Digital Banking Club.”

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees.

Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...

In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of So...

It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
