BRW: What do you hope the audience will learn from this webinar?
With so much data available at our fingertips, it can be really difficult to discern useful information from background noise. And while there are tremendous lessons to be learned from other peoples’ experiences, it can be really challenging to find examples that are relevant. In this webinar, I hope to take the audience on a journey – starting with customers’ expectations, moving through the latest developments in technology, leading to the implications of the change, the challenges that arise and crucially how to turn those challenges into opportunities. I hope the audience will be able to leverage our experiences for their benefit, helping them smooth their journey to becoming the digital bank of tomorrow – today.
BRW: What discussions do you look forward to having with the audience?
I look forward to hearing from the audience about how their digitization journey is evolving – whether they are just starting or are well into the journey. It would be interesting to discuss the challenges that they face and how technology can help them overcome those challenges.
BRW: What do you enjoy most about your role?
As I get to work with people all over the world, it gives me a unique opportunity to see where global trends turn meet local needs, and more importantly how our customers are translating those trends into products and services that their customers need.
BRW: How did you get into the industry?
I’ve always been interested in using technology to solve problems, so I trained as an application programmer. However before I sat my final exams I was offered a role in professional services – implementing core banking systems in Africa, the Middle East and Asia. As a 20 year old I was intrigued – travelling the world and meeting new people. And while I didn’t spend much time using my programming skills I did spend a lot of time figuring out how to use technology to solve problems. Ever since then, over 25 years ago now, I’ve been helping people get the maximum return from their investment in technology.
BRW: Where is your favourite place in the world and why?
I travel a lot, and always have, so my favourite place in the world is my home. I live in Ireland, which is not too warm, not too cold, not too dry, perhaps too wet but it is home. It is where my family is.
Join Daragh O’Byrne from Nucleus Software on 21st November for a webinar entitled ‘How Do You Become The Digital Bank of Tomorrow – Today?’ at 3PM London/10AM New York.
