2012 Celent Banking Innovation & Insight Day Roundup

Last Wednesday, Celent hosted its fifth annual Banking Innovation & Insight Day. We had a full house of energetic attendees, and a solid crew of dynamic panelists and presenters.

After a brief welcome address, we launched right into the agenda with a panel session on tablet banking. We did things a little differently this year, with each of the panelists (from USAA, CIBC, and Stellar One Bank) giving brief demos of their iPad apps. The demos were followed by a stimulating discussion on tablets and how they are changing the digital banking landscape. The mobile theme continued right into the next session, a panel discussion on the future of mobile banking and payments. Panelists from Wells Fargo, SunTrust, and Standard Chartered prognosticated on future mobile innovations and the potential of mobile payments.

We were extremely honored to present our 2012 Model Bank awards. The audience was also given the privilege of hearing from two of the model bank award winners: Redstone Federal Credit Union and Bank of America Merrill Lynch.

In the afternoon, we introduced the topic of industry disruption and invited a speaker from a bank (Citi) and a speaker from a startup (Social Money / SmartyPig) to talk about disruptive initiatives in banking. One of the highlights of the day was definitely the energetic and thought-provoking presentation given by Yobie Benjamin, CTO of Citi Transaction Services and Citi Enterprise Payments.

There were a number of tweeters in the room. We invite you to see what folks had to say on Twitter.

Bank Systems & Technology published a couple of articles on the event:
