GFT Technologies live at CODE_n (CeBIT | Hannover | 16.-20.03.)

CeBITBooth in CODE_n hall 16: bank of the future
What may sound like a future vision of digital banking, will be made reality by GFT at CeBIT 2015. The company is setting up its Digital Banking Lab in CODE_n Hall 16 (booth D30) to showcase the innovative services available in the connected living room and bank branch of the future. Trade visitors will not only be able find out about the most important IT trends for the banking sector but also test them themselves. The various modules put the customer in the centre, enabling them to experience the bank of the future – from the personal smartphone greeting on entering the bank to mobile peer-to-peer payments and automated account optimising as part of a Personal Finance Management system.

Since a couple of years, digitization is radically changing whole industries. With the entertainment and media industry as a frontrunner, many other industries are on the verge of change. Fueled by the enormous possibilities which are enabled by the Internet of Things, the digitization of production environments is now progressing very quickly. While this can already be seen more clearly in industries like the automotive industry, other industries are yet to be affected at large. The software industry is offered a great chance to enter existing markets dominated by engineering companies with new innovative business models, while the traditional players in the mechanical engineering industries are confronted with new disruptive competitors.
No one wants to be reduced to a sole component supplier. This forces both sides to reach out to each other and start a cooperative approach of developing the game changer of tomorrow.

In addition, digitization is making software more and more horizontal, driving the need for a synchronized software and hardware development process. As an additional challenge, these two worlds today tick at a very different clock-speed in terms of development horizons and on top they speak completely different languages.  

A central question which needs to be answered is how to merge these entirely different worlds? Can a common level of understanding be reached? Or are different mindsets, methods and tools standing in the way of success?

The members of the panel coming both from the engineering as well as from the software world will discuss challenges which arise because of this constellation and they will try to point out solutions to these issues.
