How APAC Firms Will Lead Globally in Digital Transformation
Watch the Webinar Covering This Award-Winning Project
The APAC region continues to lead industrial digitalization by showing outstanding enthusiasm for technological development and utilization. In the latest BloombergNEF’s (BNEF) 2020 national industrial digitalization ranking report, South Korea and Singapore take the top spots with China taking fifth place.
The tech-savvy APAC image is reinforced by innovative banks and financial service firms across the region. As experienced firsthand by the speakers at this session, APAC leads the digital transformation in terms of policy, technology, investment, education levels, venture funding and many more aspects. And there is great interest in topics like Artificial Intelligence-driven customer insights automation.
Financial institutions have to deal with massive amounts of unstructured data, such as call notes, emails, expensive premium data, analyst reports, earnings call transcripts, and much more. The textual nature of this data makes insights extraction nearly impossible, resulting in almost 99% of this data hardly being touched. This is where an insights engine such as Squirro comes into play, as it understands the data and uses AI-driven technologies to discover valuable opportunities that would otherwise be lost.
Watch this webinar to hear from our partner and financial data provider Refinitiv and our implementation partner Synechron about how Squirro helps turn data insights into business revenue.
