Bahrain TechWeek 2019 – Delivering a Digital Future

Last month we hosted “Delivering a Digital Future” at FinTech Bay in Bahrain as part of Bahrain’s TechWeek.  There was a great turnout including many banks and financial institutions from across Bahrain.



We were joined by special guests, Sh. Mohammed Al-Khalifa of Bahrain EDB, Alistair Sergeant, CEO of Purple Consultancy and AbdelKarim Abu Jaber from Microsoft. Our speakers outlined the digital landscape in Bahrain and across the Middle East and how the EDB were facilitating Digital Transformation. Alistair gave great advice on how to tackle Digital Transformation and provided case studies from other financial services institutions. Microsoft outlined into how their products can help.


Myself and our CTO, Dylan provided a demo of our Banking Accelerator which is built on Dynamics 365 but weaves in other elements of the Microsoft platform to provide an all-encompassing solution. We demonstrated AI, Customer Onboarding, Customer 360° View, Loan Applications and Mobile Approvals. We finished off by inviting our colleague Jordan to demonstrate a Power BI Dashboard over a Teams Video call, live from the UK.



The final part of our event was a Q&A session with a lively discussion around the challenges faced by financial organisations across the region and how to address them.


We thank Bahrain EDB and our speakers for making the event possible.  We are already looking forward to our next event due in early 2020!
