BNP Paribas Fortis is focusing the hacks of the event around 4 different themes
1. New ways of interacting with clients (B2C)
- Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality
- Integrating our offers in social media & third party platforms
- ROBOT (physical robot focus, not ‘process automation/robotics)
Today, people are used to have what they need on the spot, available in just two clicks. The internet giants have fix a new level playing the field in terms of services and our customers expect the same from their bank. Most of them no longer understand why they should take an afternoon off in order to get an appointment with their banker.
2. Offer new e-services to our Wealth & Private banking clients (B2C)
- Share your investment with Friends
- Facilitate informal investment club
- E-vault & Account aggregation
- New way of visualisation for your portfolio
- Facilitate philanthropic actions
My shopping experience has drastically changed the last few years and I except the same from my private bank. However, except for the basic banking services I need to dedicate a lot of time to manage all the aspects of my finance (investing, credit, searching info, finding opportunities, structure, understand, handling documents….). My time is definitely precious and I would like my bank to facilitate and aggregate all the services around my finance. I also like to be implicated in the opinions of my peers and the trends in the wealth community.
3. Internet of things & Sharing Economy: how will they transform equipment assets/finance? (B2B)
4. Companies simply do only use 10% of their brain
Urban legend or not? Most companies today are looking for ways to unlock the potential in what they know about their clients, markets, businesses… Are there secret patterns to discover and interpret? Which yet to be designed algorithm could support their strategic decisions? How to anonymise company data to the extent that it still remains a friendly and eligible asset? How to responsibly marry a client’s privacy with the exploitation of the valuable information he represents?
A lot of hurdles exist in this rat race to go from prophecy to profit, yet that only makes Data Analytics the most interesting field to innovate. So, join our hackathon and come up with your great ideas, algorithms and methods to exploit the other 90% of our brains.
