    Jun 01, 2018, by Andy Efstathiou

      I recently attended the Capgemini Financial Services Industry Conference in London, also meeting up with several banks to learn more about where they are spending their digital services money, what they are looking for from digital projects, and where the market is headed. Bank demand for digital services has grown and matured over the past few years. In 2015 and 2016, IT services[...]

  • Meet Ari & Mya, the Talent Acquisition Virtual Assistants

    May 31, 2018, by Nikki Edwards

    With increasing pressure on organizations to find the best hires, talent acquisition (TA) teams are continuing to grow.

Here I look at the early careers and future prospects of Ari and Mya, two virtual assistants currently being used by TA vendors and corporate T[...]

  • SGWI’s GEO Employment Model: Enabling Agile Global Expansion

    May 22, 2018, by Pete Tiliakos

      As businesses today are increasingly operating at a global level, they face inherent complexity and compliance hurdles.

And new regulatory directives such as GDPR are placing yet more compliance pressure on the HR and payroll leade[...]

  • Infosys Builds Foundations of a Successful Open Banking Ecosystem

    May 16, 2018, by Andy Efstathiou

      The banking industry is undergoing significant legal and operational transformation, including the move towards open banking, a regulatory requirement whereby banks open their platforms to third-parties for them to transact business with the banks’ customers and suppliers. Here I look at how Infosys, with its Finacle suite of solutions, is working with banks to support the tran[...]

  • Testbirds Continues to Experiment with its Crowdtesting Portfolio

    May 14, 2018, by Dominique Raviart

      When NelsonHall published the first crowdtesting vendor evaluation in the industry in 2017, it was striking to see how the main crowdtesting players had different strategies and were developing their services in different directions. And crowdtesting continues to surprise by bringing novelty to the testing service industry – an industry essentially based on process and, increas[...]

  • Accenture’ s Teach & Test Methodology for AI Testing

    May 11, 2018, by Dominique Raviart

      In the past three years, testing service vendors have been looking at how to adopt more automation and apply AI to testing. Accenture, meanwhile, has been approaching things from a different angle, looking at how to test AI software itself rather than applying AI to the delivery of testing services. Here I look briefly at Accenture's approach to AI testing, which used a two-ph[...]

    May 03, 2018, by David Mayer

      For all the discussion in the blockchain solution industry around platform selection (are they choosing Fabric or Sawtooth? Quorum or Corda?), you’d be forgiven for thinking that every provider’s first stop is the open-source infrastructure shelf. But the reality is that blockchain is more a concept than a fixed architecture, and the platforms mentioned do not encomp[...]

    May 01, 2018, by Ivan Kotzev

      For many years, the telecoms sector has been the dominant market for customer experience (CX) services providers.
