Recently we released a new e-book, “The Data Center in 2018: New Technologies and Trends,” and it is available for download now.
We’re continuing this blog series to highlight aspects of the e-book, and the second one starts with Digitizing Financial Services. In 2018, we are starting to see blockchain going mainstream. With the CBOE and CME launching Bitcoin futures in December 2017, the currency continues to spark many conversations as Bitcoin continues its path as a potentially credible currency. Awareness and interest in blockchain’s other applications is increasing across the globe. With the blockchain surge comes faster digitization of the financial services industry.
Typically among the slowest to adopt new technologies and processes due to rising data security concerns and regulatory issues, the financial services industry is now faced with having to innovate through digital automation and enhanced customer experience because of blockchain technology, the rise of cryptocurrencies and new regulations. Banks, even with the help of artificial intelligence and other innovations, continue to cite siloed data and confusion on ownership of the emerging technologies as deterrents.
