About this title

Synopsis:

The calculus of IT support for the banking, securities and insurance industries has changed dramatically and rapidly over the past few years. Unheard of just a few years ago, corporate intranets are now used for everything from job postings to enhanced team communications. Whole new departments are being created to support e-commerce. And the Internet/Intranet/Extranet triple-whammy is the most critical component of most financial IT shops. At the same time, new intelligent agents stand ready to take on such diverse functions as customer profiling and data mining.

Get a handle on all these new and newer ripples with Handbook of Technology in Financial Services. Here, in this exhaustive new guide and reference book, industry guru Jessica Keyes gives you the no-nonsense scoop on not just the tried and true IT tools of today, but also the up-and-coming "hot" technologies of tomorrow, and how to plan for them.

Keyes gives you extensive, example-driven explanations of such topics
as:

  • digital check imaging and Internet-based billing
  • e-commerce and Internet banking
  • portfolio management systems for the 21st century
  • GIS technology in financial services
  • and much more.

    Focusing on problems from both a technology perspective and a business perspective, the Handbook also addresses challenges and solutions associated with:
  • supporting the self-service revolution by servicing kiosks and ATMs efficiently and economically
  • straight-through processing for the securities industry
  • outsourcing business communications in the insurance industry
  • distributed integration as a cost-effective alternative to data warehousing
  • and putting inbound fax automation to work in financial organizations.
    Packed with real-world case-studies and practical solutions to problems confronting financial services IT managers every day of the week, Handbook of Technology in Financial Services covers everything from system security to IT support for the Web marketing of financial services. In short, it is a compendium of essential information no professional can afford to be without.
  • Review:

    The Handbook of Technology in Financial Services is a veritable encyclopedia of technology trends. A must-read for anyone in the industry.
    -Pat Bitton, Director of Marketing, Trend Micro, Inc.

    If you are a financial services manager, this is a 'must read' to keep up with the technology trends in such a fast-paced industry.
    -Michael A. McNeal, President & CEO, Absoft

    The financial services industry is evolving more quickly than a broker makes trades on the NYSE. This book makes dry technology issues come alive!
    -Lynn Paull, VP of M&I Bank, Milwaukee, WI

    This book is an indispensable guide to the convergence of technology and the global financial system.
    -Bernard Lunn, CEO, Ionic Systems

    How will the financial services industry meet the unprecedented challenges and opportunities of the electronic marketplace? This book provides some insights from those on the front lines, and is one of the few resources available that can be used by every department in almost any financial services firm.
    -Rob Brown, Ph.D., CFA, Executive Vice President, Portfolio Management Consultants, Inc.

    As someone who has been involved both in the Financial services business and the Technology business I would highly recommend this book as it is a marriage of the two worlds in a style that is easy to understand.
    -Mal Anderson, Executive Vice President, SLM Software and CEO of their western operations including wealth management support tools
