  5. 5. We go to distributed data oriented empowering finance 1. Development from big black boxes (like banks or their IT) to distributed services and solutions ■ More targeted services, including finance services integrated to other services like lending to e-commerce ■ Distributed ledger, open APIs, back office as a service, and new data models 2. Data must be enabler, not only optimizer ■ End-users must get concrete immediate value from data, not only that companies use them to optimize their own business ■ For example, it is not only a bank optimizes an interest rate based on customer’s risk, but the customer can get an optimal solution for its finance needs 3. Distributed power ■ Banks and finance institutions used to dominate the finance business, but new solutions distribute the power to many service providers and to customers, as we have seen in media and retail digital disruption ■ It is about business models and culture, but also about IT, new technology enables new models, main frames are dead
  6. 6. Reality versus cheap talk 1. AI is more data analytics and supporting tools than human looking robots ■ People often think intelligence is like being a human, although the reality is more complex ■ Now AI is especially advanced data analytics, machine learning and tools to make decisions from data 2. Blockchain as a concept is more important as a database ■ Blockchain is a concept and model to store data and transactions, but it is not yet a full software stack to replace databases for larger amount of data ■ Actual solutions need additional software layers and there are also smart ways to combine databases and blockchain layers 3. PSD2 opens regulated components and data, but banking IT services are not so relevant ■ Bank’s IT is old fashion and also business risk for new companies to be dependable on banks ■ Access to regulated components and data open competition
