Senior speakers from Gartner Group, Forrester, Dresdner Bank, Sun Microsystems, BEA and Eontec gather to discuss e-channel strategy and implementation for banks
Tuesday 22 May 2001, London
Wednesday 23 May 2001, Frankfurt

Dublin, 17 April 2001 – Eontec, the global provider of multi-channel banking software solutions for banks, will host a series of Enterprise Java Banking Briefings in London and Frankfurt, during May 2001. These half-day events will provide a forum for leading strategic and technological innovators to discuss the business issues surrounding the deployment of banking solutions across multiple service delivery channels, and the use of Enterprise JavaBean™ (EJB) technology in enabling those solutions. The Briefings will offer a dynamic environment where knowledge and experience is shared about planning, developing and deploying integrated, scalable multi channel banking solutions.

Multi channel solutions can provide real strategic advantages to the financial companies that deploy them effectively. But, how can a company cut through the mass of data available and choose the correct platform to support applications for new products and channels? How can banks offer consistent customer service across branches, call centres and online? How can new channels like iDTV or WAP be tackled cost-effectively and consistently? What will happen in the future? These questions and others will be addressed by leading analysts, Jennifer Kirkby, (Gartner Group) and Natasja Senn, (Forrester).

The architectural benefits of EJB technology and project deployment will be examined through case study presentations from leading international bank, Dresdner and their technology partners. Interactive panel sessions with senior enterprise architects and business development directors at Sun Microsystems, BEA and Eontec will examine the risks and rewards associated with deploying e-channel banking software, from integration and performance, to individual customer experiences.
Walter Jenny, senior enterprise architect, Sun Microsystems comments: “EJB technology has gained significant momentum in the financial services industry since its introduction more than two years ago. This is primarily due to the benefits it delivers for enterprise development teams; the reduction of costs in developing enterprise scale applications whilst protecting existing investment in IT resources.”

Winfried Froehlich, financial services IT architect, Dresdner Bank comments: “Ensuring effective customer management for key accounts within a multi-national environment is becoming an increasingly difficult role as new channels emerge. Flexible architecture is the key to such complex project deployments but there are many other considerations. The Enterprise Java Banking Briefings provide real insight into the wealth of factors involved when managing successful technical implementations for large retail banks.”

Ian Doyle, senior architect, BEA Systems acknowledges: “Financial services organisations are facing a challenging situation. They are struggling to accommodate more complex global operations across multiple contact channels for the mass consumer base. These Briefings will offer insight into the foundations needed for successfully deploying integrated e-channel solutions that are fundamental in the future of retail banking across the globe.”
