As a leading, innovative telecommunications service provider, Comcast Business is committed to expanding its services to support various industries in South Florida, including financial services. Comcast Business recently sponsored the Transforming Banking Through Technology panel event at the Four Seasons Hotel Miami in Brickell, the financial center of Miami, alongside the South Florida Business Journal.
Jimmy Kelly, director of marketing, Florida Region for Comcast, kicked off the event by explaining to the audience, comprised of banking and technology professionals, how Comcast Business is supporting South Florida’s financial service industry with reliable network connection, flexible bandwidth options and increasing cloud-based applications.
“By adapting and exceeding expectations, Comcast Business has readily delivered a superior digital experience within the South Florida market,” said Kelly. “Our cutting-edge products and services are diverse enough to support a wide range of industries such as banking, healthcare, hospitality and more.”
The evolution of technology is reshaping the banking industry, and Comcast Business is acclimating to the new challenges by launching innovative solutions, such as ActiveCore SDN, and SD-WAN. The new technologies range from more online banking and fewer brick and mortar locations to new options for the unbanked, new security requirements and more. Comcast Business saw the opportunity for improvement and understood it was time for a new networking approach to accommodate the ever changing financial services landscape.
Led by moderator Jairo Namur, chief commercial officer of Intelligence for Action, the panel of local business experts discussed their diverse backgrounds and professional opinion on the advancement of financial technologies. The panel included:
- Andres “Andy” Collazo, EVP/Director of Bank Operations & IT, US Century Bank
- Christina Camacho, CTP, CEO, Ivy Lender
- Jorge Fernandez, IT Director, Ocean Bank
- Jeff Foster, Founder and CEO, Cardplatforms
- German Pugliese Bassi, CMO, Co-founder and Alliances, Technisys
- Dibyendu Dibs Shekhar, Senior Director, Product, SD-WAN/SDN/NFV, Comcast Business
The panel of experts discussed the future of online banking, IT management, API platforms, artificial intelligence and cryptocurrency. German Pugliese Bassi emphasized the importance of providing convenience to consumers.
“Consumers like convenience and making their own decisions about their money – not the bank telling them what to do,” said Pugliese. “This is why financial service providers must adapt to the consumer’s growing needs and wants.”
Consumers want convenience at every stage of their banking experience and banking institutions must adapt to provide fast and reliable services; Comcast Business enables businesses and banks to do just that and more. Comcast Business’s high-speed services have been proven to enhance efficiencies, new revenue streams, better customer engagement and modernize outdated IT infrastructure.
