    How Data Science is Actually Transforming a Business 2

    The amount of data is growing exponentially. The rise of computing power has enabled the field of data science to execute advanced data analysis at scale. Data is the new oil and data scientists have sexiest job of the 21th century. That much for hype.

    In this presentation, Tim Faber (product owner data science) will share with you some real-life experiences with the application of data science. The Sociale Verzekeringsbank (Social Security’s Bank) in the Netherlands started about 2 years ago setting up a couple of data science pilots, to see what it could bring to the business. Within a couple of months everyone was convinced, but then the real challenge begun.

    This is a down-to-earth talk about the challenge to find the right business problems / opportunities, translate those into data science solutions and build the right team to deliver those insights that help organisations work smarter and become more customer-centric.

    How FinTech is Innovating and Transforming the Financial Sector and Other Industries

    Join us on November 9th for a Fireside Chat on how FinTech is transforming not only the financial industry but many other business sectors involving transactions, and the implications this has for our business activities. This chat welcomes guest Gabriel Leiva von Bovet, EVP Global Services at Zafin Labs AG, a worldwide leader in digital banking, in conversation with Ken Fulmer, President and CEO of IIBA on how Fintech is impacting your role.

    FinTech redefines the whole spectrum of how banks engage with customers. Not so long ago, banks were offering products and services that they claimed no substitute existed for. Now we have cash-less payments such as Apple Pay and Bit-coin that change the landscape for a wide range of companies. Once viewed as fierce competition, traditional banking is now working with FinTech companies to offer new products and services to customers, saving time, cost, and delivering overall better customer experience.

    It is almost impossible to predict exactly how FinTech will ultimately redefine traditional banking but one thing is for sure, no one will be unaffected by those changes.

    Innovation in the Fast Lane

    Well-intentioned leaders, in their attempts to boost innovation, are inadvertently destroying it. What if “thinking outside the box” actually kills innovation? What if failure is not a necessary component of innovation? It’s time to innovate the way you innovate.

    During this interactive keynote, you will discover that innovation isn’t just about generating occasional new ideas; it’s about staying consistently one step ahead of the competition.

    You will discover why:

    • You don’t want to innovate everywhere. Avoid trying to improve every aspect of your business. Instead, “innovate where you differentiate.” Focus your energy where there is the greatest potential impact.
    • Asking for ideas is a bad idea. Avoid suggestion boxes or abstract questions. They create a lot of noise and wasted energy. Instead, provide well-framed challenges to increase creative output. “Don’t think outside the box, find a better box.”
    • Expertise is the enemy of innovation. Breakthroughs are rarely developed by experts within your industry or area of specialization. Instead, reframe your challenge to find solutions elsewhere.

    The pragmatic approaches shared have increased innovation ROI tenfold or more at Stephen’s clients.
