    Date: 18 December

    Days to go: 5

    Time: 11AM London

    Open Banking is placing huge pressure on financial services providers.
    They face “death by a thousand cuts” as insurgent fintechs steal their thunder with personalised services and snazzy apps.
    Complex legacy IT environments don’t need to stop progress.
    You can experiment and “fail fast” by composing and integrating business apps using APIs and microservices that layer on top of existing systems.
    This webinar will explain how, and provide “lessons learned” from delivering such digital layers in financial institutions.
