Ushering Next Generation Financial Services Through Data Innovation
Successful digital transformation relies on how data is stored, protected and optimised for compliance, risk management and improved customer experience


Companies that make up the Asia Pacific banking and financial services sector face similar set of challenges.Everyone from the largest foreign-owned commercial bank to the smallest local thrift bank is saddled by repetitive, costly and ever-changing compliance policies.

Data protection is another challenge. Highly vulnerable to increasingly-complex security attacks, financial institutions allocate significant funds and resources to mitigate threats and guarantee the integrity of valuable customer data.

Digital Transformation (DX) levels the playing field in the highly-diversified FSI space. It allows early movers to benefit from the cultural and mindset shift necessary to support ongoing transformation, while enabling late adopters to transform rapidly, outpace competition and even disrupt the industry.

Asia Pacific economies are at various stages of DX maturity. In some countries, the disparity of digital adoption among companies are more evident. In the Philippines, for instance, digital-only neobanks are at the front line of DX adoption competing head-to-head with digital-savvy local and foreign universal and commercial banks in reinventing the banking experience. Constrained by limited resources, thrift banks
and most rural banks have been slow to catch up on the trend but competitive pressures may force them to act on their digital transformation vision sooner than later.

Efficient data storage, protection and analytics are crucial to Digital Transformation. Data is extraordinarily powerful it can bridge the gap between technology and line of business if harnessed into actional insights and delivered securely to the right people at the right time.

Digital Transformation is just the beginning of the journey and it doesn’t end with the launching of digital infrastructure and platforms. Bigger challenges lie ahead and data is a powerful change agent financial institutions can use to their advantage.
