The list of banks offering - and customers using - mobile remote deposit capture (RDC), the "killer app" that has helped drive the explosion in mobile banking adoption, has grown rapidly in the past two years. But the real value of this breakthrough is in the lessons and insights banks and digital strategists can draw from mobile RDC about customer engagement, process efficiency and revenue generation. These will yield adjacent innovations: next-generation services and offerings that stem from the elements and principles of mobile RDC.

Leon Panetta, U.S. Secretary of Defense, has said the recent spate of attacks on banks foreshadow a "Cyber Pearl Harbor." Join Neustar and Arbor Networks as we analyze these recent attacks and the implication they have on DDoS mitigation solutions. We'll also review a recent survey of mitigation solutions and their results in practice as well as take a deeper look at why some solutions work better than others.
In this webinar, IDC Financial Insights explores the challenges and solutions the financial industry faces in providing both protection from attacks and strategies that improve the customer experience. While mobile, cloud, social networking provide significant convenience to customers, and business benefits to the financial industry, they also provide a growing base of opportunities for cyber-attacks designed to steal, tarnish reputations, and cause financial harm.
Financial services companies, whether insurers or banks, are not shy about the possibilities for mobile technology to improve their customer relations or organizational agility. But mobile technology advances rapidly, and that puts pressure on companies' development organizations to discover and implement capabilities that leverage the main attractions of the channel -- location awareness and anytime, anywhere access -- on devices of different form factor or capabilities. Indeed, three years after the introduction of the iPad, tablet computers are poised to outstrip traditional PCs and become the major online portal for many financial services customers.
When it comes to gaining competitive advantage, insurers no longer are judged only by how efficient they are or how quickly they can process claims (although those capabilities continue to be essential). Building market share increasingly depends on an insurance company’s ability to provide an outstanding customer experience and enhance engagement with policyholders and distributors. This is particularly important in that ultimate insurance “moment of truth” – claims management, where the ability to create a more responsive, accurate and transparent claims experience for customers is a key differentiator.
Financial institutions spend billions of dollars on firewalls, proxies, routers and other devices to prevent unauthorized access to their network, but security breaches continue to plague the industry.
Today’s investors are more hands on and more likely to actively seek investment advice. Research shows that investors who communicate and collaborate with their advisor electronically pay more for the guidance they receive. But most financial firms -- saddled with traditional, siloed CRM systems -- struggle to engage with their clients through digital channels while maintaining the same level of advice, service and regulatory compliance as traditional methods of communication.
Retail banking is facing many challenges as technology allows customers to choose from diverse banking options, from branch banking to smart phones. Banks have also extended their reach from local to national and global markets. Without the consistent customer engagement models that were successful in the past, how can financial institutions measure and monitor success with a whole new set of engagement models?
IT professionals who work at organizations with fewer than 1,000 employees face a unique storage challenge. Their environment has grown to a size the requires the features and performance of enterprise-class systems, but they have a budget that is barely above the cost of starter SANs that are designed for much smaller businesses. They face a technological gap between these starter SANs and more robust enterprise offerings. Bridging this gap requires a new generation of products that offer enterprise-class features and reliability at a cost that is within the budget realities that these organizations face.
Most organizations that license software such as Windows, SQL Server and Oracle on a per processor or per host basis are spending far more than is required on licensing. Because VM placements are typically driven by basic utilization criteria, and not more sophisticated business or technical policies, these software components tend to spread randomly across physical servers, necessitating a large licensing footprint. This creates an opportunity to save in excess of 50% of existing costs, but achieving this requires a fundamental shift in how VM placements are managed within virtual environments. Join CiRBA CTO & co-founder Andrew Hillier to learn how to contain licenses and control costs with predictive analytics that profile workloads to optimize placements by both:
As global financial markets become more interconnected and diverse, trading environments are increasingly dynamic and responsive to real-time conditions. Participants across the trading value chain seek to capture new business opportunities while mitigating risks associated with the added volatility in today's financial markets. Achieving this goal requires trading platforms that provide flexibility and offer insight and intelligence that feed into optimized trading strategies.
The lack of a standard identification system for financial counterparties makes it difficult for financial firms to develop a consistent and integrated view of their exposures, such as in the case of default of counterparty. This is a challenge not only for firms, but also creates an obstacle for regulators to aggregate and share information to effectively monitor risks. A robust Master Data Management (MDM) solution helps financial institutions implement Legal Entity Identifiers in order to better understand their business and better respond to regulations, like Dodd-Frank.
Insurance customer engagements are growing in complexity as they take place via mobile, email, the web, voice and so on. The volume of information that must be captured is similarly growing. Automating document driven processes, by capturing and digitizing documents upfront, is a key step that insurers must take to manage what could quickly become information overload.

Providing quality, cost effective customer service to policyholders and agents is a challenge many insurers face in today's market.

In survey after survey, insurers identify regulatory and financial pressures as a prime enterprise concern. And it's legitimate: Solvency II, IFRS compliance, and healthcare reform are just some of the impactful events coming down the road. When you couple that with a tepid interest rate environment and a sluggish economy, it's understandable that insurance companies would have anxiety around the bottom line.
