The world of Finance is being digitally disrupted across areas such as mobile payments, money transfers, loans, fundraising, and wealth management. Traditional financial firms are fighting back, but they struggle to keep pace with the FinTechs. Financial Technology is facing a daunting challenge of changing ecosystems, ever growing big data, and the rationalization and access of big data insights. Speed of change is critical, and software has become the tip of the spear in this disruption with a new model called microservices, an approach where large applications are broken down into small, loosely coupled and composable autonomous pieces. Join us as our guest speakers Randy Heffner, VP and Principal Analyst at Forrester Research, and Stephen Murphy, CEO at Genesis Global, explain how microservices improve speed of execution, key emerging practices for doing microservices well, and how microservices are enabling disruption in financial services.

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • How Microservices serve as a key underpinning for Digital Business
  • Architectural shifts and advantages of Microservices in FinTech
  • Emerging best practices and Dos & Don’ts of Microservices
