Webcast Summary

The evolving marketplace has made it imperative for technologies to become light and easily accessible. Businesses today are no longer tied down by the traditional boundaries of space and time. Work is 24/7, inter-connected and constantly on the move. Consequently, ERP solutions too need to break free from the clutter of excessively complicated technicalities to become simple, easy-to-use and scalable. The world is moving towards a leaner, efficient and contextual information delivery model, with embedded analytics. Spruce this with an element of Chatbots and Voice and you encounter a whole new world of Finance. This seamless experience is complemented by the availability of easy to use intuitive self-service on mobiles (Android/iPhones), tablets (iPad/Android tabs) and of course desk top and laptops.

What if Financials could learn and serve you with information based on past transactions without being fed with information all the time? Welcome to the world of Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning in Finance.

Join this webcast as we traverse through the innumerable possibilities of leveraging NextGen technologies in Finance.
