Data estate transformation is hard! Financial institution leaders must navigate an ever-expanding network of tools and technologies, and increasingly stringent regulatory and security requirements. Even when they find what they are looking for, implementation can be stymied by resource requirements and availability, budget concerns, and adoption fatigue.

Passerelle invited three regional banking IT leaders, who will share how they helped plot the course for scalable, future-ready data management with security and data governance at its core. Our Regional Banking Roundtable features:

During the Regional Banking Roundtable, panelists will discuss how they chose their technology stack, what they learned during implementation, and identify a few items every technology leader should know before they start a modernization project.

Panelists will close the Roundtable with some information about a community project their bank supports – all event attendees can vote for their favorite project, and Passerelle will contribute $10 per vote. We will be sure to leave time for Questions and Answers – our Panelists know their stuff and have so much to share.
