Annual D+H Connections Conference to Focus on Helping Financial Institutions Grow and Compete in a World of Disruption
LAKE MARY, FL, Aug. 26, 2015 /CNW/ - DH Corporation ("D+H") (TSX: DH), a leading provider of technology solutions to domestic and global financial institutions, today announced it is expecting more than 1,600 participants at its upcoming annual client conference, Connections 2015. The event, which is being held from August 31 to September 3 at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego, will host the company's lending and core system clients, offering significant collaboration, education and networking opportunities.
With financial regulations, trends and technologies continuing to change at a faster and more frequent pace, this year's event provides excellent insight and dialogue around how to embrace these changes to remain relevant and compete effectively. From new competition and alternative players - such as payment and online lending startups - to consumer expectations for simplicity and convenience and continuing regulatory pressures, including TILA-RESPA requirements, financial institutions must evolve technology and behavior.
"Growing and competing in this new era requires financial institutions to think and operate differently," said Bill Neville, president of D+H's Lending and Integrated Core Solutions business. "Our goal at this year's conference is to bring together 'game changing' clients, industry experts and D+H leaders that can share practical guidance and real lessons learned to help our community of clients embrace these new dynamics and turn disruption into opportunity and ultimately an era of growth."
At the event, attendees will have access to nearly 200 sessions and presentations led by D+H subject matter experts and industry visionaries. Key sessions will include:
- Changing the Commercial Lending Landscape
- Embracing Secure Business Mobility: The Real "Why" Behind Cloud Computing
- Integrated Lending for Multi-Channel Paperless Loan Origination
- Keys to Tackling Credit Challenges and Seizing Opportunities: Know Your Customer and Technology
- Maximizing Branch and Electronic Channels to Serve Today's OmniChannel Customer
Retired U.S. Army First Sergeant Matt Eversmann - the hero of the film, Black Hawk Down, and the 2004 book The Battle of Mogadishu - will be featured as this year's final day speaker to share his harrowing experience with attendees, demonstrating what a hero truly is and what leadership is all about. Other speakers will include Ed O'Brien, Mercator Advisory Group; Eric Weikart, Cornerstone Advisors; John Caruthers, FBI; Mollie Bell, Filene Research Institute; Mark Schwanhausser, Javelin Strategy and Research; and Robb Gaynor, Malauzai Software.
Additionally, Innovations Station will offer attendees the unique opportunity to experience the depth and breadth of D+H's technology portfolio and solution integration first-hand. Located in the heart of Innovations Station and making its debut at this year's conference is the Showcase Theater. This new platform will bring together industry experts, key partners and innovative clients in an informal setting. It will include Q&A sessions, discussions with peers and thought leaders, and a dynamic demo highlighting the impact that industry-leading technologies are having on the consumer experience. More than 60 of D+H's alliance partners will also participate in the Partner Expo, where they will have the opportunity to feature their own solutions that are compatible with D+H products and engage with conference attendees.
