Executives to Gather in Colorado for GDS International's Sixth FST North American Summit in April

Feb 11, 2013, 05:43 ET from GDS International

DENVER, February 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Taking place this April, GDS International will host their sixth Financial Services Technology Summit US, which will serve as a platform for the most senior professionals within the industry to discuss the real-life challenges and issues affecting their organisation.

Analysts predict that 90 per cent of organisations will support corporate applications on personal devices by 2014. Although a well designed BYOD program can increase employee satisfaction and speed up the rate of technology adoption throughout the enterprise, there are also a number of complex and hidden implications.

Big data is also having a significant impact within the financial services arena with a recent survey revealing that over 50 per cent of respondents listed ''gaining better customer understanding'’ as the main motivation for big data programmes.

Over the two and a half days of the FST US summit delegates will have the opportunity to discuss these, and other topics including enterprise architecture, social media and BI, in an intimate setting with 65 fellow executives. The event will also play host to a series of one-to-one meetings, interactive workshops and a roundtable program designed to help facilitate more in-depth conversation and aid the implementation of effective solutions and strategies.

Past and present event attendees include:

- CTO, Morgan Chase
- CTO, Citigroup
- CIO, MetLife Global Technology
- Managing director, BlackRock
- Chief Innovation Officer, U.S. Bank
- Chief Scientist Information Security, Bank of America

The FST 20, a senior steering committee of industry experts, have created a cutting edge and educational program for the summit, ensuring that the event sessions address current issues relevant to the entire audience. With our experienced delegate team hand-picking all attendees, these discussions will produce high-value, practical content for everybody involved.

The FST Summit US - http://www.fstsummitus.com - will take place on the 23rd - 25th April 2013 at the Omni Interlocken Resort, Denver, Colorado.
