The adoption of cloud technology provides an opportunity to address a number of these issues &ndash; providing flexibility and agility, enabling new data-rich services, increasing efficiency and cutting costs.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Despite cloud being a major part of today&rsquo;s digital agenda, <a href="https://www.pwc.co.uk/financial-services/assets/clouds-in-the-forecast.pdf" target="_blank">financial services (FS) organisations have in the past struggled to keep pace with the adoption of cloud computing</a>&nbsp;and there remains a number of perceived barriers holding back wide scale adoption. These may barriers may include, a lack of clarity on regulatory guidance at a European and UK level, the implications for security and concerns over the risk implications for banks in migrating data to the cloud.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Join us on 1 November for an in-depth roundtable discussion focusing on the opportunities for financial service organisations adopting and deploying cloud services, the barriers preventing the sector from moving to the cloud and how these can be addressed.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Opening remarks will be provided by:</p> <ul><li>Sue McLean, Technology and FinTech Partner, Baker McKenzie</li> <li>Rich Radley,&nbsp;Head of Customer Engineering, Financial Services, Google Cloud</li> <li>Darren Earnshaw,&nbsp;CIO / IT Director / Head of Lending Technology, Barclays UK</li> <li>Matthew Field,&nbsp;Senior Public Policy Manager, Digital, HSBC</li> </ul><p>&nbsp;</p>Contact: <a href="mailto:katherine.mayes@techuk.org">katherine.mayes@techuk.org</a> http://www.techuk.org/events/roundtable/item/13986-uk-india-tech-forum UK India Tech Forum http://www.techuk.org/events/roundtable/item/13986-uk-india-tech-forum Tue, 25 Sep 2018 13:12:42 +0100 CRM Sync noreply@techuk.org The forum is a platform to allow businesses to engage with key stakeholders for business growth <p><strong>About</strong></p> <p>Hosted by techUK, the UK-India Tech Forum is a platform to allow businesses to engage with key stakeholders in government and business in areas of UK-India trade, policy and market growth in both countries.

We will bring together a wide range of providers, users and policy-makers to examine the following types of issue:</p> <p>&bull; The emergence of Open Banking should provide new ways for individuals to manage their money and access greater choice in services. What types of service might most enhance financial inclusion and how can local communities and public services foster their development? <br>&bull; What is the role of the banking sector in ensuring all citizens have access to the financial services they need? <br>&bull; How can existing local advice services use technologies a) to reach those in need and b) to give them the assistance they need?<br>&bull; How can new technologies contribute to financial education and the prevention of debt?<br>&bull; How can the Inclusive Economy Partnership best deliver at local level? And how can technology companies and local communities best work with the new Single Financial Guidance Body which will join together the Money Advice Service, Pensions Advisory Service and PensionWise.</p> <p><br>This event will be of interest to techUK members, government, local public services, consumer bodies, think tanks, academic institutions and charities.
