WEBINAR: Accelerate Banking And Insurance Mobile Strategies With The Right Tools And Technology Approach

November 18, 2014


Rising mobile banking and mobile insurance adoption, coupled with growing customer expectations, means banks and insurance companies are under pressure to develop advanced mobile capabilities. But urgent business needs often make financial service firms quickly prioritize implementable single-channel solutions over more sophisticated but slower-to-implement cross-channel solutions. In the haste to show mobile progress, many financial services firms have rushed to get their apps into iTunes and Google Play without first considering the disruption that these mobile initiatives can have on their people, processes, and core systems. The result is that digital banking and insurance teams could be trading away a future-proof mobile business platform for a short-term "me-too" app undertaking.

In this Webinar, Forrester analysts Jost Hopperman and Ellen Carney discuss the various paths financial services firms can take toward the different flavors of mobile solutions; identify some tradeoffs; and provide an overview of mobile and IT services vendors that can help banks and insurance companies build the mobile solution best suited to their individual environment.


  • How are banking and insurance business and technology strategists implementing mobile solutions and what are the obstacles impeding progress?
  • How are mobile strategies affecting core systems?
  • What are the steps you need to take to select the mobile technology approach best suited for your firm?
  • What it means: Getting to the right mobile solution is a journey, not a destination.

Key takeaways:

  • Understand that even the best-defined mobile banking or insurance strategy will have execution hurdles.
  • Learn how to take the best approach in identifying the mobile technology approach best suited for the business.
  • Know why business teams can't forget that technology teams need time to design, select, and deliver the mobile solution.
