Based on our extensive knowledge of Cloud adoption and its challenges in the UK Mid-Tier Financial Services market, we pulled together a range of hand chosen, complimentary, “best of breed” technology and solutions providers who had been proven in real engagements with our client base over the previous 12 months to deliver value, and address specific cloud enablement and adoption challenges.

We also organised a wide range of speakers from our UK FS client side community to discuss the challenges they faced (and still face) – and how some of the solutions providers we have introduced them to had helped solve these problems.

Positioned right next to the exit of the first ever CEE industry specific speaker’s theatre (Finance and Banking Technology) –  at stand number C1853 – this hub of FS focussed activity became a hub concentrating on discussing and addressing various firm’s specific problems and concerns, and expressly NOT on flogging the latest widgets.

Open discussions explored the many themes addressed in our thought leading Blogs over the previous 12 months, including (click link to read):
