Digital transformation is not one-size-fits-all. There are no technology vendors selling a Digital-Transformation-as-a-Service solution. So, how can financial institutions implement a successful digital transformation strategy that delivers on strategy, increases operational efficiencies, reduces operating risks, and fosters higher levels of interaction and integration?

But, as you'll hear in our conversation, a successful digital transformation strategy goes beyond deploying technology and stresses the importance of full-firm operating model changes and a commitment to creating open environments, including digitally native offerings.
During the podcast, we discuss:
