Hadoop, Big Data and The Future of Financial Services

Date: 4th Feb 2016

Venue: City Social, Tower 42, 25 Old Broad Street, London EC2N 1HQ

Risk and reward are the twin watchwords for all in financial services. The ability to seek out opportunities while meeting the regulatory and compliance needs of the industry – as well as the privacy, authentication and security needs of the customer – is what marks out the forward thinking organisation from the rest.

Increasingly opportunity depends on understanding intelligence better than your rivals. Analysing data in large volumes, at high velocity and across multiple streams promises competitive advantage, improves operational margins and insulates against market shocks.

At this CBR Dining Club event, our partners for the evening Hortonworks will make the case for Apache Hadoop, the management engine of Big Data once described as “the most exciting technology I’ve seen in my career since the advent of relational database management systems” by the head of data at one of New York’s leading banks.

The evening will be your chance to quiz a world leading Hadoop expert and to share your views and insights with fellow senior IT executives – all in the breathtaking surroundings of City Social, situated within the iconic skyscraper Tower 42 in the heart of the City of London. We will present use cases from within the big data ecosystem, ranging from AML compliance, trade lifecycle, fraud detection and digital transformation, and introduce our risk data aggregation and compliance initiative. Vamsi Chemitiganti, GM Financial Services at Hortonworks will share his experiences and best practices in working with Fortune 100 financial institutions across these areas.

Do join us for an evening of informal networking, engaging conversation and fine dining.
