The new year brings fresh insights and thought leadership as AWS re:Invent bonus content launches, January 12–14, 2021. Join us as Financial Services executives and innovators bring to life best practices—and share what’s new and next in the cloud.

For your convenience, all three Financial Services industry presentations are on the same day: January 12.

Gear up for the following three customer sessions:

FSI205-PT1: Barclays: Transforming customer experience with Amazon Connect (January 12, 9:30 a.m. PST)
Last year, Barclays chose Amazon Connect to compete with popular startups providing innovative customer experiences in a rapidly evolving digital bank landscape. The COVID-19 pandemic then increased the urgency of Barclays’ Amazon Connect implementation, as the bank needed to enable 25,000 contact center agents to work from home, which it achieved in just six weeks. Learn how Barclays rapidly modernized its contact center and is transforming omnichannel customer engagement with Amazon Connect. Speaking are: Sean Charlton, CIO of Contact Centres, Barclays, and Milos Cosic, Senior Worldwide Production Apps Specialist Solutions Architect, AWS. View here.

FSI205-PT2: Fannie Mae: Transforming loan evaluation with machine learning on AWS (January 12, 10:30 a.m. PST)
Fannie Mae used Amazon Machine Learning services to improve its important Multifamily line of business, which provides lenders with essential loans to buy affordable rental units for families. Its machine learning application can identify up to 48% of applicants that are likely to default. This session shares practical guidance on implementing machine learning at scale, including data gathering and transformation using a data lake and model transparency and explainability. Subra Seshadri, Vice President, Enterprise Architecture, Fannie Mae, and Paul Jeyasingh, Advisory Consultant, AWS, present. View here.

FSI205-PT3: Capital One’s Journey to being “all in” on the cloud (January 12, 11:00 a.m. PST)
In 2015, Capital One decided to go “all in” on the cloud. That decision set in motion a company-defining objective to transform how it operates. Five years later, Capital One shares its technology transformation story, from its initial approach to this massive objective, to successfully exiting its remaining data centers in 2020. Learn how a highly regulated financial institution harnessed AWS to change the way it architects and deploys applications, accelerating new product and feature delivery from months to weeks. The speakers are Danny Seeley, Senior Director, Cloud Engineering, Capital One, and Michael Haken, Principal Solutions Architect, AWS. View here.
