CIB and CIWM leverage predictive analytics, machine learning, deep learning and Watson technology to create actionable insights that allow financial institutions to deepen relationships with retail banking and high-net worth individuals. Enriching IBM’s solutions with Segmint’s KLIs will provide a holistic set of customer insights at an individual level that can be put directly in the hands of front office personnel or used to drive targeted marketing and personalized offers.

This partnership combines the insights of IBM’s CIB and CIWM platforms with output generated by Segmint’s proprietary technology, KLIs. Within minutes, insights are generated that tell the unique financial story of each, individual customer including a complete picture of a customer’s:

  • Financial product utilization
  • Products with competitive institutions
  • Onboarding break points
  • Behaviors
  • Transactional spend patterns

Instead of grouping customers together solely by age, gender or location, Segmint optimizes a bank’s data and assigns KLIs to each customer based on real-time transactional behavior, actual activities and interests. Through KLIs, Segmint empowers banks to provide customized information and offers specific to each customer’s financial needs and goals.

“The ability to have a partner like IBM is a game changer, and ultimately we believe this endeavor will bring new business value to the retail banking space while enhancing the customer experience,” said Rob Heiser, president and CEO of data-driven, software solutions company, Segmint. “Every step of the customer journey is important and ultimately we want to unlock deeper customer insights that create more interesting conversations for financial institutions.”

The process of preparing data, performing analytics and delivering insights through the collaboration between IBM and Segmint will provide companies with all the information needed to responsibly grow, cross-sell customers and reduce churn. These insights and Segmint KLIs can:

  • Identify attrition risk
  • Strengthen customer onboarding
  • Increase financial wellness
  • Reveal a complete financial picture
  • Expose competitive insights

Customers are demanding these capabilities as 80 percent said they expect their bank to provide them with information to help them make better financial decisions. However, just over a quarter (28 percent) of bank customers feel their bank provides them with information that helps them reach their personal financial goals and life events such as paying for college, saving for a down payment on a home, etc., according to the 2017 Segmint Consumer Bank Marketing Report.

IBM Customer Insights for Banking or Wealth Management enriched by Segmint Key Lifestyle Indicator® (KLI) technology is available now. For more information please contact Rachel O’Neill.

Serverless applications increase developer productivity and time to market, by freeing engineers from spending time on infrastructure provisioning, configuration and management. Serverless also simplifies Operations and reduces cost - as the Kubernetes container infrastructure required to run these applications is automatically spun up and scaled precisely with the workload, to optimally handle all runtime requests. Recent advances in open source technology now allow organizations to run Serv...
Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications. It's the most prominent and widely known software container platform, and it's particularly useful for eliminating common challenges when collaborating on code (like the "it works on my machine" phenomenon that most devs know all too well). With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...

While a hybrid cloud can ease that transition, designing and deploy that hybrid cloud still offers challenges for organizations concerned about lack of available cloud skillsets within their organization. Managed service providers offer a unique opportunity to fill those gaps and get organizations of all sizes on a hybrid cloud that meets their comfort level, while delivering enhanced benefits for cost, efficiency, agility, mobility, and elasticity.
Kubernetes as a Container Platform is becoming a de facto for every enterprise. In my interactions with enterprises adopting container platform, I come across common questions: - How does application security work on this platform? What all do I need to secure? - How do I implement security in pipelines? - What about vulnerabilities discovered at a later point in time? - What are newer technologies like Istio Service Mesh bring to table?In this session, I will be addressing these commonly asked ...
The KCSP program is a pre-qualified tier of vetted service providers that offer Kubernetes support, consulting, professional services and training for organizations embarking on their Kubernetes journey. The KCSP program ensures that enterprises get the support they're looking for to roll out new applications more quickly and more efficiently than before, while feeling secure that there's a trusted and vetted partner that's available to support their production and operational needs.
Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Th...
When you're operating multiple services in production, building out forensics tools such as monitoring and observability becomes essential. Unfortunately, it is a real challenge balancing priorities between building new features and tools to help pinpoint root causes. Linkerd provides many of the tools you need to tame the chaos of operating microservices in a cloud native world. Because Linkerd is a transparent proxy that runs alongside your application, there are no code changes required. I...

With the rise of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container technologies, the growth of microservices has skyrocketed among dev teams looking to innovate on a faster release cycle. This has enabled teams to finally realize their DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model. Why containers are growing in popularity is no surprise — they’re extremely easy to spin up or down, but come with an unforeseen issue. However, without the right foresight, DevOps and IT teams may lo...
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
Kubernetes is an open source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. Kubernetes was originally built by Google, leveraging years of experience with managing container workloads, and is now a Cloud Native Compute Foundation (CNCF) project. Kubernetes has been widely adopted by the community, supported on all major public and private cloud providers, and is gaining rapid adoption in enterprises. However, Kubernetes may seem intimidating and complex ...
