Keynote title: Killing COBOL: How to modernise your mainframe

Presenter: John Bolger – Global Application Modernisation Lead

  • How can you replace your legacy COBOL systems?
  • How do you derisk the modernisation process?
  • What role does AI play in accelerating this process?
  • What is the cost of not modernising?

In this talk, we will discuss how we successfully modernised to a cloud-native solution, a mission-critical COBOL mainframe solution responsible for invoice processing of 3 billion euros annually. We will also demonstrate how Generative AI can accelerate and derisk this process.

Roundtable session

Title: Beyond the Hype, practical applications of AI in FSI

Presenters: John Bolger & Andy Parsons – Digital Advisor for Financial Services

  • 56% of large organisations see how GenAI will impact investment priorities, yet only 4% have made it past Proof of Concepts. So how do we get past the hype and move towards practical and useful scenarios for GenAI?
  • In this roundtable, we will discuss, based on our first-hand experience of bringing Generative AI projects to production, how you can affect your own AI strategy and focus on using AI to solve real challenges in your organisation
  • We will also walk through a real-world example of where GenAI can make a difference to your business, enabling and unleashing the modernisation of your legacy systems by derisking the process

Bring your opinion and be prepared to engage in a lively discussion!
