Exploring The Evolution Of Data Science In Banking

May 10, 2019 at 10:09 AM

We’re looking forward to attending this year’s Evolution of Data Science in Banking conference. The 2019 conference will be held on the 5th and 6th of June at the Indaba Hotel, Fourways, Johannesburg. The event will explore the use of data and analytical techniques to help financial services providers meet regulatory and reporting requirements. Also to be discussed is how running analytics at a product level can provide a more holistic view of customers across their portfolios.

The two-day conference will have a look at the evolution of data and analytics in banking, innovation and technology; data security and cloud adoption; data management; data and analytics initiatives, and data regulatory concerns.

Trade Conferences International (TCI) has been at the forefront of producing banking and financial services conferences. This conference will be an extension of TCI’s successful Big Data and Analytics Conferences and will discuss the challenges lying ahead while looking at what has been done in the last couple of years since the previous conference took place.

The conference will focus on attracting professionals dealing with big data, product development, regulation, compliance, technology, data management, value analytics, data analytics, customer segmentation, channel integration, solutions, business analytics, governance, data services.

Principa’s Head of Credit, Thomas Maydon, will be attending the conference as speaker on the topic of Actionable Data: The Problems with making decisions without data and how to solve it which will cover a case study on human fallibility and decision making; the different types of data analytics; the difficulty of making data actionable and actionable data for operational success.
