12:10 pm - 12:50 pm How ANZ Are Preparing Their Internal Environment To Effectively Manage Customer Data & Deliver Quality Consumer Propositions In The Open Banking Ecosystem

Nigel Dobson - Banking Services Business Domain Lead, ANZ
Open Banking will signal a need to successfully handle and utilise increased amounts of consumer data. In order for this to happen, each organization must first address how they handle their current internal data. With internal work in place, adding another layer of data through Open Banking will be manageable and will ultimately positively impact both the organization and the consumer. In this session, Nigel will share with you:

  • Why ANZ views open banking as an innovation opportunity rather than a regulatory compliance protocol
  • Data integration - Ensuring data quality and alignment in the age of responsible banking and lending
  • Operationalising models and attributes with real time customer data to deliver compelling and relevant customer propositions
  • How these propositions will be enhanced when Open Banking adds another layer of data
