Webcast: The Future of Mobile Development in Financial Services

by KonyNov 15, 2013

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.

In this webcast, moderated by Insurance & Technology associate editor Nathan Golia and featuring Stephen Drake, IDC's VP of Mobility & Telecom, and Amit Aghara VP from Kony Solutions, financial services technologists will get answers to these and other questions:

  • How can I minimize time to market of new mobile offerings?
  • What does ongoing maintenance of mobile offerings entail?
  • What are tablets most suitable for during the customer experience?
  • And how should I accommodate for them?
  • How secure are the latest handsets and tablets?
  • How do I manage the customer experience across multiple touch points (mobile to web)?

Webcast: The Untapped Potential of Mobile Apps for Commercial Customers

by KonyMay 13, 2013

Study after study has highlighted the rapid adoption of mobile devices by consumers but commercial customers are embracing mobility as well. The desktop and laptop are being replaced or, more likely, supplemented by smart phones and tablets. In fact, the typical employee uses three devices for work daily.

Even though mobility is a phenomena that affects both consumers and the enterprise, the mobility needs of commercial customers has been largely ignored: While much of financial institutions’ focus has been on developing consumer mobile apps for their retail banking business, there is opportunity to deliver enterprise mobile apps to the commercial market as well that can serve as a competitive differentiator.

However, it’s challenging to provide enterprise mobile apps to commercial clients. Not only do the apps need to be secure but they need to work on multiple operating systems and devices. Developing a variety of apps puts a very real burden on IT staffs and increases costs for financial institutions.

When it comes to mobility, think ‘once and done:’ develop the mobile app once and deliver it to multiple devices. This multi-device strategy streamlines mobile app design, development and deployment; reduces IT costs; and improves speed to market of new apps.

Join Bank Systems & Technology and Kony to explore the mobility trends that will have the most on impact how financial institutions deliver enterprise-grade mobile apps to commercial customers and learn strategies for creating a mobility platform that maximizes mobile app development.

  • Understanding how commercial customers differ from retail customers and strategies for designing a mobility platform that can support the needs of both.
  • Addressing mobility issues specific to commercial customers, such as supporting bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies.
  • Selecting the appropriate mobile app development platform: native, HTML5 web-based or hybrid.
  • Considerations for buy vs. build.
  • Realizing cost savings in IT and overall business operations by developing an app once and delivering it to multiple devices.
  • Leveraging a mobile application development platform to deliver a consistent user experience across devices.
