Banking Technology April 2019 issue out now
Fintech spring is here, bringing the world colour.
The latest edition of our flagship magazine – Banking Technology – is out now, packed with news, analysis and insights, case studies, research and expert commentary.
A note from our editor-in-chief, Tanya Andreasyan:
“Most losses are recoverable except for time. Once lost, it remains lost forever.” These were words of Mohamed Horani, CEO of paytech company HPS, at the opening of the recent PowerCARD conference, urging bankers to hurry up with their digitalisation efforts.
Time to market is now measured in days and even hours, he emphasised, not months or years as it used to be. Long-term visions are now built in agile, small increments.
The future is already here, he continued. “So we must work individually, but also collaboratively – together – to enable the future now.”
Our team hopes that this latest issue of the magazine will inspire you to contribute towards hastening the digital future, to innovate and to make your mark on the industry.
And, as our resident thought provocateur Leda Glyptis advises, if your organisation is already blessed with an innovation team that “has the guts and brain fire power to explore different intellectual possibilities, the focus and determination to test options and present you with viable proposals for things never done before”, go over right now and give them a hug.
But if there is no such team – “go out and hire people who can take you boldly forth into the unknown; hire them for their intellectual prowess and old-world credibility; hire them for their creativity and insane work ethic; hire them for their fierce grace”.
There is no time to lose.
